My question most likely has been asked (and answered) before, but I was unable to choose the proper tag words to get posts that relate. So please forgive me if this is a "been there/done that" issue:
Will a cruise line allow you to disembark (for good) at a port that is not its final destination?
If I embarked with just a large carry-on, for instance, and did not require a baggage check-in at the time I came aboard, and if (for example) the cruise begins in Los Angeles, transits the Panama Canal, and continues on to Ft. Lauderdale, New York City, and--as its final destination--Boston...then may I get off at New York City with my carry-on and end my cruise at that point if I wish?
It seems self-evident that I could. After all, some people get left behind when they stay too long at a port; so it would seem likely that others could do that deliberately. But I was wondering if the cruise line would raise an objection if I were to let them know that this was deliberate on my part (I'd want them to know so they wouldn't assume I'd been left behind and go to any trouble trying to contact me or my emergency contact).
Anyone have any experience with this one?
