LOL, never miss a ships movement. People don't seem to think of it as a big deal and think if they get there the ship will wait, nope, they will leave you and hopefully you where smart enough to take your purse/wallet and passport with you when you left.

Yeah, ship's sail their schedule, and their schedule accounts for a lot of things, tides, open dock space where they are sailing to etc.

When thy say be there by..you better BE there by!

You think the captain would pull back in and just pick them up.

There's more than just "pulling back" they have to throw the lines out again, hang the gangway and then cast off all the lines again.

And god only knows, if they don't throw out the proper lines and something happens,, there will be some law suit.

ps, I know your post was tongue in cheek, I was just saying.

Time off the dock, is time off the dock.
If I say be on the boat at 0630, you better be there, or I'm gone and not coming back.
Pretty simple really.

Nope, believe it or not they would be charged. Twice I've seen people taken to the ship, probably cost them a few hundred and hoisted thru a door. This all has to be cleared thru the captain and the harbor pilot

Why?

Not inconcevable there would be fees involved for every passenger for docking again.

It's all about them.....In Their world. We are avid cruisers and have seen it happen a few times. Two ladies were brought out to the ship by Mexican patrol boat. The captain announced that mistake cost them 2,000 dollars.

My daughter and I were the last 2 to board a cruise ship in Italy. We missed getting off the train at the Civateveccia stop and had to go to Rome and back to the Port. I think they delayed departure about 10 minutes for us.

My daughter works in HR on a Carnival ship, she is in Australia right now. I have talked to their security people onboard. Basically, it depends. Sometimes, depending on the port and ship's schedule, they will wait for awhile, especially if you have called them and told them a workable ETA to the ship, or are on a cruise line sponsored excursion, and the bus broke down. Sometimes, especially if they have no idea where you are, and are at certain port, they will leave on time. Every port has a shoreside representative from that cruise line to help you. Help usually involves either finding a hotel room, at your expense, and getting on a Carnival ship which might arrive the next day. You are also paying for that cruise now, because the cruise you paid for left. Sometimes, your option is to fly home, also at your expense. Remember, the schedule runs on "ship's time", which usually never changes from your departure port. Maybe 5 PM ship's time is 3PM Roatan time.

TIP: Carnival, and I think most cruise lines, have a "behind the scenes" excursion, where you get to tour the ship, totally cool, got to see the engine control room, bridge, etc... had a blast.

How long has it been since you've done this? My first cruise was in 2005. They made many references to these tours, but said after 9/11 their security policies were changed and they no longer did them.

I've been wanting to take this tour and the chef's tour I think it's called. May do that when we leave for Cozumel next week.

I did mine last fall. Every Carnival ship does it, I don't know about the other lines. No cell phones allowed, and a security guy follows the group, but Carnival is doing them on every ship. The engine control room was a blast, three engines, five generators, massive control board that runs the plumbing, electrical , and every other system on the boat, talked to an Croatian engineer about all the systems, how they run together, very high tech stuff. Went to the kitchen, the main alcohol guy could tell you how many Bud Light cases they had gone through. On Carnival boats, its is usually done the last sea day, and is lead by a person from HR, my daughter led ours, that was why we did it. Her ship at the time (Glory) had about 1300 crew, and she was one of usually about 12 Americans. Its a world not for everybody, but the logistics of how it all works together I thought was fascinating.

I love these videos......the last minute running when suddenly they realize that on time matters......the frantic "hey wait you forgot US.....you can't leave US!!!...WE ARE HERE!!!....then the dejected look when they figure out no one gives a shit about THEM

I've done three on NCL, never got close to the engine control room. In fact that room was in the high security area. Spent 20 minutes on the bridge of the Gem about 5 years ago. Its pretty dam impressive and amazing to see how many things run so smoothly when your dealing with a crew of 1200-1500 from 80 countries around the world
