On our Hawaii cruise I watched as 2 female employees got on late(ship did wait) and we heard they were fired on the spot.

Omg! How awful. Poor guy.
And those poor CMs that were fired. What stop was that? Which cruise? I was on the October one.

Bad Result

Here's a recent story of a group that booked independently for a shore excursion (from a different line) as reported on Cruise Critic. We also mix our excursions between Disney and independent providers, but I guess they didn't do enough research!

bt (dot) ly (slash) 105wbOG Maybe that will do it?!?
Otherwise go to cruise critic and look for Passenger Killed

We also do a mixture, largely depending on the port. If we've been there before and/or are sure of a reliable operator, we will go independently of DCL.DCL is pretty good about weather related refunds, but they evaluate it on a case by case basis. Private companies are the same--again, read their policies.

As to the ship leaving without guests--yes, that's the downside to going on your own. Be sure of the policies of your operator. The more reliable guarantee that you WILL be back to your ship on time or they will pay for your passage to the next port; then they make sure that they never have to pay for passage. The less reliable....well, that can be a problem. And as to crew not being back on time--they generally have an "all aboard" time significantly earlier than the guests do and they know the penalty for missing it.

I think it was the big island but not sure.

They were at least 30-45 minutes late from a bar and thought it was funny.

When we first got on board all the crew was so excited about the cruise because they were giving about 1 1/2 days off to explore the islands and have fun.

2 drunk girls can ruin it for the rest of them.

I think there was more CM's on Waikiki beach then passengers. That's all they talked about all the way back to the main land.
