Getting off a cruise ship an hour after sailing?

Jump to last reply

In 2010 I took a cruise from NY to Bermuda. Less than an hour after sailing we witnessed a tug boat pull up alongside and a middle-age couple got off the cruise ship and onto the tug. Their luggage was tossed onto the tug and they had to climb down rope ladders. The cruise ship never slowed down so both vessels were moving the whole time. It was quite obvious that the woman was frightened. Have you ever seen or heard of this? To this day I am curious why this took place.
By the way, at dinner that night I asked one of the waitresses if she knew why something like that happened. She looked down at my 7-year old niece and 9-year old nephew and said “Probably because they didn’t eat their vegetables.” It was a very funny & memorable moment but I never did get an answer.
