Most of the newer platforms are like this but if you go offshore thinking they're all like this, you may be in for a bitter disappointment...

I worked on offshore rigs, mostly Drillships in deep and ultra deep water. They were quite modern and automated rigs, hence my experiences are a close match to Hebron's, we didn't have a music room though but a gym, game room and entertainment room.
