Well I found this video on youtube this goes specially to the new cruisers:

This was on the Carnival Glory, please take the time to see it specially if you like the cutting too short kind of tour or arriving late to port becuase a flight delay...

Cas - That's a great video, a lesson ,and an unforgettable example to all of us cruisers. First timers take note!! As Dave has stated: "Adios Amigos!"

I'm sure they just couldn't understand why the ship wouldn't pull back to the pier! Sort of like the airlines pulling away from the gate.

we have always returned to the ship with plenty of time to spare. But some people like to push it to the limit, and are braver then I am. I take the departure time very seriously. I think they honestly think the ship will wait for them and they learn the hard way that 4pm departure means 4 pm.

That was almost me last year on Roatan! Never again will I cut it that close. The person that did the second dive and made us late will be like a scene from "Open Water" for her when she comes up. I'll leave a note..."We went back to the ship on time".

They warn you and warn you, yet there are those that think it doesn't apply to them. Expensive, expensive mistake.

I sent these videos to my oldest son.

He is notorious for waiting until the last minute......

one day I predict...this will be him....
