Passenger Count Issues Delay Passengers On Cruise Ship

Posted: Updated:

The Celebrity Mercury arrived at the Embarcadero at 7 a.m. Monday, but more than 1,800 people on board didn't get to leave the ship until three hours later.

That's because the passenger count didn't match with the number of people on the ship.

Many were upset about missing their flights at Lindbergh Field.

"They did a lot of searching for people five or six people or so. No swine flu, but we all missed our flights," passenger Richard Lembcke said.

The cruise started in the East Coast with stops in Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas before arriving in San Diego.
