Settle a Debate about Cabo

On a short 5 day cruise where the only port is an overnight in Cabo, what do you think happens if the tenders cannot go ashore:  Will they float around at sea or will they try and port elsewhere in Mexico?

It is hard to to find a port last min,  some times they just cruise you around the coast.  It is rare that tenders can not work.

That's what I told my son ... now Catalina Island is a different story but they rerouted us to San Diego ... I just don't think it will be that rough in Cabo next week ...

Not sure there is another port within reasonable distance that could accommodate a last minute cruise ship dock. Schedules for port space are tight... to the point that there are financial penalties contractual matters when ships are not on time in or out of port.  

Our guess is that the ship would float around (assuming weather conditions allowed).  Look at the cruise contract for specifics. We don't think the cruise line is mandated to find an alternate port if the primary (and only) port is skipped, for most any reason.

I have never heard of this happening in Cabo but I would guess that you would stay at sea. 

Drinks on board ship would be free for a period of no less than 12 hours, but no more than 24.   

When we were there a year ago, the sea was so rough that excursions for all water sports were cancelled, but the tenders still ran. My guess is that you would just stay on board and have a cruise with all sea days.
