TikTok reacts to cruise ship leaving woman behind

Most TikTok users berated the influencer for missing her cruise’s scheduled departure.

“Uber will leave if you’re late, but you thought a cruise ship would accommodate?” one user questioned. “Cruise ships do not leave people who get back ON TIME,” another wrote.

“They tell you so many times when you should be back and that it’s your responsibility. The ship didn’t leave you, you left the ship,” a third said.

Some offered suggestions for the TikToker.

In a follow-up clip, phfame00 revealed that she met the ship “at the next port” and was able to get back on her cruise.
