Oh no, I would love to know the stories behind these missed boarding.

My goodness!

We saw these while doing our research, and it was hard not including them, but difficult choices had to be made. We especially wanted to include the cell phone thrower as a bonus pick, but it just didn't quite fit.

Thanks for sharing!

To me, any video about a pier runner that misses the ship, trumps a video where they are taken out by pilot boat. Watching someone stand at the end of the pier frantically waving their arms ( as family members join them ) is funnier than someone who is allowed to board. And let's face it, that weak armed toss and that phone going into the water, priceless ! Big Smile

I don't get what people don't understand about departure time and "be back on the ship by" time. To me, it is critical information to live by. Unless there is some extenuating circumstance - like death or dismemberment, you get back to the ship well before the deadline.

That must leave you with a sick feeling.
