Aren't captains supposed to go down with the ship?

Technically...

It's more about:

  1. Evacuate non-personnel (aka, passengers, with emphasis on children/women)
  2. Evacuate non-critical staff (chefs, waiters all that)
  3. Evacuate technical staff (engineers, such)
  4. Evacuate captain (after everyone else)

Something went awfully wrong.

Can this mean 'the captain is able to swim' as well?

I guess it's a good thing that the captain can swim

it sounds like she says a word in between kaptajnen and svommer which sounds like the dutch word for "must". Am I just imagining this? cause it seems like it would make sense with the technical explanation

Hmm, he's a pretty crappy captain if he has to swim methinks.
