These two cruise passengers must have imagined their vacation on the MSC Splendida differently. Instead of sailing across the Mediterranean on board, the two stranded on land without luggage.
“Captain, wait!” – With these desperate cries, the two passengers tried to persuade the ship to wait. The man waved wildly in the direction of the bridge – but without success. The video scenes from the Italian port of Bari went viral on social media.
Italian Port Authority apologizes for incident
According to the Italian newspaper “La Repubblica”, the head of the port authority is very sorry. Everything was tried to get the ship to stop. It is not known why the two passengers did not manage to board the ship in time and whether they were able to board again in another port.
