A little while back, MSN ran a story called “20 secrets the cruise industry doesn’t want you to know.” Among the tips is one that anyone who’s cruised will know and that every traveler should make sure to never forget: If you’re not back on your cruise ship in time after a stop in port, you’ll get left behind. From the story:
“If you’re late getting back on board after a shore excursion, the ship will leave without you—especially if you’ve struck out on your own instead of opting for one of their organized tours.
As a precaution, be sure to bring along photocopies of your passport, driver’s license, credit cards, and any phone numbers you might need—like for your ship, port agent, and cruise line’s customer service department. But most of all, don’t be late!”
