Step This Way Please ........

Have you ever seen anyone stopped by customs, or not allowed to board for a particular reason ?    

Ever see anyone miss the ship ?


in the luggage retrieval area after a cruise, we saw a customs agent take a young adult aside after he picked up his luggage.   Guy was in his 20s, and Jamaica was one of our ports.    I guess the dogs smelled something.

I have never seen it. However, in my experience customs processes non-Americans separately, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are scrutinized a little more. I have never seen any dogs around, but I disembark on the late side and the bags are already all out there so I probably missed them. Also I do know that customs comes on board before we all disembark.
