I have never missed the ship. However on our last cruise on the Golden Princess an AA flight did not get off the ground in Miami for Santiago Chile. Twenty-one folks missed the ship.
They finally caught up with the ship 3 days later. All they got was a 2 day comp off the cruise fare. Hotels, meals, and the flight to catch the ship was paid for by AA/Princess.
