The Cruise Lady: Do You Have a Morgue?

Do You Have a Morgue?

The Cruise Lady

Last Updated: August 9, 2019 by Lorraine Highseas | Cruising


A cruise buddy of Lorraine’s was told this story by a friend of hers who once worked at the cruise terminal – and swears it to be true.

A boy and a girl in their late teens pushing a very elderly gentleman slumped in a wheel chair approached her station for check in. When the agent asked if the gentleman was all right, the teens replied “oh he’s just old and sleeps a lot,” adding, “by the way, do you have a morgue in case “Grampa” doesn’t make it?”

Do You Have a Morgue ?

The agent immediately called her supervisor who in turn notified the ship’s doctor of the situation, and, after examining the elderly man, the Doctor advised the teens that not only did “Grampa” not belong on a cruise, he belonged in a hospital.

They argued that since the line’s policy would not allow them to board without being accompanied by an adult over the age of 25, they couldn’t go without him – whining that it wasn’t “THEIR FAULT HE GOT SICK!”

As it turned out, these two “wanna-be–spring-breakers” had booked a “suite” for the three of them using Grampa’s credit card (unbeknownst to Grampa) – and on embarkation day had checked him out of his nursing home on the guise of taking him to their mother’s house for a “family visit.”

“Mom” was contacted by terminal security, the plot unraveled, the teens were escorted from the terminal by police, and Grampa was returned to his nursing home.

Wow – some “family visit!”

Do you have a morgue?
