Anyone who has taken a cruise (I’ve never been so if I’ve been lied to tell me!) knows that if you want to get off the boat, you MUST be back on time or it will leave without you, and it will likely leave with your passport and travel documents.
If you had kids… and didn’t bring them.. YEP they’re on board too. This mother is waving her arms and crying because her kids are still on board the ship, but she is not.
She left her husband and kids on the ship and was told to be back at 5:30. When she did not return the boat waited and extra 30 minutes, which is very unusual.
The kids father and uncle were still on the ship and after talking with the captain they decided the father would take their travel documents and wait for his wife while the uncle looked after the kids.
The cruise line even offered travel assistance and lodging while they made their way to the ship at next port.
