Don’t Worry About Departure Times, They Will Wait for You

If you want to do something truly entertaining on your next cruise, try this.  Sit on your balcony, around departure times, and watch the people who either lost track of time or think, “They won’t leave without me”.  Watch them as they desperately run to catch the ship that they now realize is about to leave without them.  I do it on occasion and it is sad but, at the same time, really fun.
