The Norwegian Breakaway, a 4,090-passenger cruise ship operating in the Caribbean, left a couple behind on a pier in the Bahamas after the wife was half-an-hour late in returning from her Nassau excursion.
Adding to the husband and wife’s nightmare scenario was the fact that their kids were still on board!
Video was captured showing the woman on her knees sobbing and screaming after the ship had already pulled away. She was supposed to return from her adventure by 5:30 p.m. sharp, but completely missed the departure time. The captain even waited an additional half-hour for her return.
The husband had disembarked with their passports to wait for his wife, in the event that she didn’t return in time to catch the ship before it departed.
The kids were looked after by their uncle and his family, who were also on board. The family was reunited back in New York on April 24.
