Cruise Passengers See Woman Screaming On Her Knees - Realize She Missed The Boat

A worried mom and dad could only look on in tears as their cruise ship sailed away with their two kids on board after the pair missed the ship departure time and a half hour extension.

Apparently, the wife was late getting back to the port in Nassau, Bahamas, and her husband got off the ship to look for her.

The cruise boat waited an extra half hour for the guests, the left dock after consulting with the family.

Video footage recorded by passengers shows the parents running up the dock to catch the ship as it set sail for its three-day trip back to the Big Apple.

The father jumps off a golf cart and waves his arms when they get close to the just-departed ship, while his wife drops her bags, falls to her knees and begs the crew to stop, but it was just too late to stop.

Norwegian Cruise Line pointed out that the woman was more than a half hour late for the departure.

A statement from Norwegian noted: “The onboard team located her husband and children on board but the family was not able to reach her, nor did they know when she would be returning.

Due to the circumstances, the ship went beyond normal protocol and waited an additional half an hour for the guest.

When she had still not returned and following consultation with the family, it was decided that the husband would disembark with their travel documents to wait for his wife while the children would stay with their uncle and his family on the ship for the remainder of the voyage.

The company offered travel and lodging assistance to the couple and arrangements were made for them to reunite with the ship upon her return to New York on April 24.”

Moral of the story – except for a medical emergency, there is no good excuse to make hundreds (or even thousands) of people wait for you by arriving late for a cruise ship departure time. Too bad this woman had to learn her lesson the hard way.
