That's true... if I'm going to miss it, I want to really miss it... not just miss it by a little.
Last time, some people missed the ship in Sicily and hired a boat to bring them out to meet the ship... but it meant that we ended up stopping dead in the ocean and waiting for them somehow, instead of passing by Stromboli when we were supposed to ... so I didn't get to see the volcano (I went to dinner lol). Maybe this time
That's interesting, I didn't know the ship stopped for people like that. I've always heard that you have to find your own transportation to the next port. Which would suck for us because we only take enough money off the ship to cover what we need that day....which doesn't include transporation to the next port by means other than the cruise ship!
They've gotta know who missing from the ship. They scan us all out and then back in at the end of the day. Not that I think they should wait for people. If you miss the ship, stupid you...you should have planned better. But still...you would think they would at least have a head count of how many are missing. I always thought it would be interesting to go behind the scenes and see how it all works.
