You are usually provided with a number for the Port Agent for the ship or cruiseline you are on. As Sandy said, the Port Agent can't make the ship wait for you; but he can inform the ship that you have in fact missed it and can help you make arrangements for getting to the next port. And in rare cases, if you have just missed the ship, they can arrange for a water taxi to take you to the ship--very expensive but I have seen it done.
