Will the cruise ship wait for you if you're late at a port?
It’s every cruiser’s worst nightmare - arriving late to the port and missing the cruise ship's departure. You might frantically wonder if the cruise ship will wait for you when you’re late to a port.
Longtime cruisers will tell you they’ve undoubtedly seen instances of cruise ships leaving late passengers behind. If you go up to the top deck at departure time, you might catch a glimpse of passengers running back to the ship.
There's also plenty of footage online of passengers running to the end of the dock and begging for the cruise ship to let them back onboard.
