Reminds me of the lady who said she was told the ship docks within walking distance of the Vatican.
Many passengers feel they are being "had" when unexpected things happen. Sometimes things occcur during between docking and sailing that there is no way for the company to let you know ahead of time. Then, there are the times when there was no way the company didnt know there would be a delay and said nothing til sailaway or the next morning.
Places like Cruisemates and cruising blogs are great ways to get educated on the ins and outs of cruising so that there are fewer surprises on your vacation.
