Late returning couple tries to stop cruise ship

A couple frantically tried to stop a cruise ship that was leaving without them in the Bahamas after they turned up 45 minutes late to board the vessel.

The unidentified man and woman were supposed to get back to the Royal Caribbean ship by 3.30pm, which was the last call for passengers, but when they showed up at the dock late the door was already closed.

Video captured the pair looking dejected at the ship leaves them behind on February 15.

It was the last day of a seven-night cruise aboard Symphony of the Seas, the world's largest cruise ship, in a voyage that started in Miami.
