|Port at Nassau|
But in the Bahamas, port authorities at Nassau have just gone one further – a couple of Fridays ago they had to tell the Captain of 156,000 tonne cruise ship Norwegian Epic, with 4,100 passengers aboard that, sorry, we've overbooked and we don't have a berth for you for today.
What makes it all the more strange is that Nassau has only five berths, and Norwegian Epic visits there every Friday throughout winter.
While authorities are trying to explain how they got it so wrong, a local newspaper is suggesting that Nassau replace its current advertising slogan "Life Needs the Caribbean. You Need a Passport," with "Nassau: We'll see if we can squeeze you in."
