The hapless couple caught on camera desperately chasing a Royal Caribbean cruise ship as it sailed without them has revealed that crewmembers mocked them as they were left behind on the dock.
Honeymooners Maria Gonzalez Roesch and Alessandro Di Palma ended up stranded when they arrived just minutes after their ship Symphony of the Seas left Nassau, Bahamas, on February 15.
Mrs Gonzalez Roesch, a famous TV actress in their home country of Costa Rica, has spoken of the ‘nightmare’ moment they realised the ship was leaving without them – with their money and passports on board.

‘We started yelling to them “please, please let us on the cruise is still here”.
‘But the guys said “you are not going to be so lucky and we are closing the doors and leaving”.
She told the news website they had started to panic once they realised their passport, visas, and credit cards remained onboard the ship.
However these were retrieved by a smaller boat which had been guiding the large ship out of the harbour.
