A couple had the worst luck when they missed re-boarding a cruise ship. What made the whole thing worse was when one of the cruise members did something that seemed directed at them.

A video was shared on Facebook that showed a couple being left behind by a Royal Caribbean Cruise ship named the Freedom of the Seas. As the ship pulled away from the harbor it appeared that the couple had just missed it.

At that very moment, a cruise ship crew member was caught on camera waving a giant fake hand goodbye. The fake brown hand with yellow nails was simply written “Bye.”

Chances are that the crew member was just waving goodbye in general and not targeting the passengers left behind. The couple could be seen standing helplessly on the St. Maarten dock before walking away slowly.

Hopefully, they figured out a way to get to the ship’s next port on their own. A number of other passengers on different boats notice the couple and one person shouted: “They missed it!”

People then began shouting and whistling at the pair. Cruceros Puerto Rico added this caption on the video: "Today, two passengers of the Freedom of the Seas arrived late to board the cruise and stayed on the island of St Maarten.”

The page continued:

"They will have to take a flight to the next destination of the ship. It is important to be aware of the boarding hours on your trips."

The Facebook page was created for cruise ships that visit the San Juan, Puerto Rico port. A spokeswoman for the ship later explained that the crew member was actually waving at other members on other ships.

It seems it's commonplace for them to bid each other farewell that way. The spokeswoman apologized to the couple for being left behind but urged people to try and keep return times.

On July 28, footage was caught of a Carnival Cruise ship bellowing out massive amounts of black smoke. The video was captured at around 4:25 p.m., according to the tweet.

It was taken with a webcam near the port of Nassau in the Bahamas and it wasn’t clear what the cause of the smoke was because the ship seemed to be docked.
