Rare Copper10-8 Posted March 6, 2010 #26 Share Posted March 6, 2010 I agree that it is totally the fault of the passenger for missing the ship.That said, I still have to wonder just how rigid this policy is dictated by the line, or how much latitude the Captain has. I have been at the promenade rail observing sailaway on a few occasions when the ship actually waited almost a half hour beyond departure time for only two late passengers (who were 'greeted' by a chorus of boos and catcalls from other passengers). I can see waiting for a busload on a ship shorex, but only two passengers? Bob, pretty sure various items come into play (some have been mentioned): harbor master and port regulations pilot on board (on his own schedule/more ships to do) traffic in and out port ships schedule (timing) weather en route probably missing a bunch Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
