THIS is the moment a cruise ship left an unfortunate couple behind on the dock after they arrived 45 minutes late to board.
It was caught on video on February 15 as the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Symphony of the Seas was leaving Nassau, Bahamas.
It was the ship’s last port before returning to Miami and it was the sixth day of a seven-day cruise.
The video was filmed from the deck of the nearby Norwegian Bliss and the call came at 3.30pm local time.
Workers began removing the gangway and closing the door.
The hapless couple showed up five minutes later with shopping bags from their excursion.
Frantically waving, the couple tries to get the attention of people on the dock and on the ship.
Other passengers on the cruise ship can be seen looking at the couple from their balconies as the propellers start to churn in the water.
As the cruise ships pulls away, the pair are seen speaking with dockworkers but it is too late.
If the passengers were late due to an excursion booked through the cruise line then they could have been offered assistance to return to Miami.
However, if their tour or excursion was booked independently of Royal Caribbean then they would need to find their own way home.
One-way flights from Nassau to Miami are about £130 per person.
A seven-night cruise on the Symphony of the Seas to the Caribbean start at £974 per person.
Sun Online Travel previously revealed some confessions of cruise ship workers.
Crew revealed that they had sex with OAPs to top up their wages and saw passengers keeping their mistresses in the cabins before their wife and kids arrived.
Earlier this year, a couple checked into their room on a cruise only to find a crew member and a mystery woman having sex in their cabin.
