Default Leaving the ship in another port

I'm thinking of going to work on a cruise ship i'll have a college degree in the fall and want to see the world while working.
Some colleaque's on antoher job also worked on cruise ships and one of them left the ship at a port in south america while he boarded in America.
I was wondering if this is still possible ?
I would love to work for example for 4 mothns and then get off in panama or something like that.

Depends on the cruise line and your citizenship. Just from too many people 'abusing the privilege' - many lines have stopped letting crew do this.

Some countries require some nationalities to go directly to the airport when they sign off. I'm US and once signed off in Panama for a wedding back home- I was escorted directly to the airport by the port agent . . . I could feasibly sign off in the UK - but my line won't approve/pay for the flight home.

I also have U.S. are their lines where the cruise ship unloads passengers and picks up new ones apart from the starting port. i have read about this as being a new fenomenon that half way through people get on and off.

I would do a lot of research on cruise lines before thinking about doing this. The majority of cruise line want you to work your contract and fly home when it is completed. That is IF you get a job on a cruise ship which is very hard.
