I always wondered how do people miss their cruise ship leaving port? There are some videos on YouTube of people missing their ships. Like this one : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-yrsXsJmbw IF you go off on your own the ship will not wait for your. IF you are on a cruise sponsored excursion they are not going to leave 25+ of their cruisers behind if they are stuck in traffic. So pay attention to the time if you visit on your own.
The ship leaves and about 10-15 minutes later this couple comes hurrying down the dock to where their ship was…
As you can see their ship got pretty far before they arrived at the dock.
We were hanging out on our verandah watching a sea turtle when we saw the upset couple on the dock.
We were told that hopefully they had their passports with them so they could fly at their own expense to the next location and meet up with the ship. Do NOT miss your cruise ship!!!!!!
