Is there any way a cruiser taking the dawn on the sunday 4 P.M. departure time can find out if the ship is in fact going to leave on time so one does not spend hours extra at the pier.I quess what I mean is there a number you can call like you do at the airlines to see if your flight is on time? I wonder how many people got messed up going to the pier on mother's day to take that one day cruise when in fact the ship didn't even arrive until late in the day.

Mailman,
Even if the ship does not leave exactly at 4 PM - it doesn't effect your cruise. You are already onboard and having fun - whether the ship is moving or not. Even if the ship arrives back in port late - unless there are really extenuating circumstances - everyone can board by noon (or thereabouts). Cruising is not like flying.

It is very rare that a ship returns late. About the only situation that could occur is if there were a medical emergency and the ship had to alter its course to evacuate someone on the return trip back to its home port. Even then, it wouldn't really affect the departure time.

Enjoy life, what if cruises were like airlines?

You would have to wear seatbelts at dinner.

You would have to put all your luggage in an overhead storage compartment in your cabin.

Instead of dining, you would have to pick up your meal in a bag at the entrance of the dining room.

The only bottles of wine you could order would be rollers, and they would be $5.00 each.

How about if there were no bathrooms in the cabins, but only one public bathroom for every 45 people?

I just had to join so I could jump in.

Lois and Walter,
Welcome to cruise-chat. All I can say is: I'm with Raoul, thank goodness! When you compare cruising to life in the skies - it sheds a whole new light on what a great experience cruising really is. Small cabins are nothing compared to trying to sleep on a seat in Economy Class.
Nancy

OK, what if cruise lines only offered seats rather than cabins? Think about how many more passengers could get on the ship.
