That was hilarious! Apparently those folks didn't read Cruise-Chat..er..Cruise Reviews Forums. We always say...

Get back to the ship 30 minutes before time!

More good advice is to take a copy of the FunTimes with you and make sure your watch is synced with the ship's time. The Funnel only waits for those delayed on a ship sponsored excursion. Not for those that are on independent tours or are just simply "lolly gagging" (as mom says).

I met a guy on St. Thomas that actually makes a really good living taking people to the ships that have missed them. I had a close call on Roatan once with an independent arranged tour. No more pier running for me!

Glad to see you back Cas! I was starting to worry we lost you with the software transition.

I couldn't watch the whole video, the person's video taking skills were not so great.. made it hard to watch it. But It is fun to watch the race back to the ship!

It seems to me that Cozumel is the best place for this sport. I think the many bars make for a lot of late returns....
