Worse than a Pier Runner ... A Tender Chasing the Ship!!!!

So we are supposed to leave Cabo at 1 and they start paging people around 12:30 ... this goes on until around 1:15 ... Anchor Up and away we go ... Pilot is about to bid us adieu and here comes a Mexican Tender full speed ahead straight for the ship.  So we are all taking bets if the two people in it are going to be let back on board and how the heck they would get onto the ship.

Next thing you know, the tender and the pilot ship are headed back to shore and you could make out two people still in the tender, obviously screaming at each other...

Gee we were only there for 24 hours ...not enough time folks?  Needed one last burrito for the road ...?

I am so glad they did not get to board....that is ridiculous. After 24 hours and couldn't make the last tender!

Oh well... Tough luck. Idiots

Obvious---did not book through the ship.

Plus they announced a hundred times that the last tender left at 12:15 and had left one tender out until 1 which they didn't have to do ... Ya Can't Fix Stupid .....

A special kind of stupid.

I'm still surprised that the captain didn't just let them board through the pilot door on the ship. I know all the time issues the captain has. Next port. Fuel costs to pick up speed, excursions all that but if the tender caught up the ship could have slowed to boarding speed and let them on. No no no am I defends the idiots but since they were racing out on a tender perhaps the captain could have made a slight adjustment.

Nah don't stop for them. These types need to learn a lesson. They aren't the center of the universe and departure times aren't suggested times. Would love to have seen that incident. I have no sympathy for these late arrives. Especially when they are casually walking down the pier alone without a care as the ship rep is waving at them to hurry up.

Yeah, I agree. I guess Captains get tired of it. It's like disrespect.

I do remember in 2014 in Nassau I was looking off the Lido watching these losers late to the ship, ship is waiting and they just strolled

..F them I say.

Debbie if anyone else shared all the experiences from this cruise, we'd never believe them. LOL It was definitely a week you won't forget for a long time. Happy
