The crew from the tug boat Faithful attempted to help a passenger who missed her departing cruise ship, the Norwegian Breakaway.
 
The female passenger arrived at Heritage Wharf in Dockyard just after the Norwegian Breakaway had left the dock at around 5pm.
 
But the Faithful crew took the late passenger on board and ferried her out to the ship.
 
*According to the message boards on crusie critic, the captain deemed it too unsafe for her to board and the Faithful returned her to the port. She will be responsible for finding her own way back to New York as she missed the ship.
 
The Norwegian Breakaway will return to Bermuda again next Wednesday.
 
While the kind-hearted gestures of the tug boat crew have already been turned into a video, with accompanying 'Don't Rock the Boat' soundtrack and it has appeared on YouTube.
 
So far the video has already attracted more than 1,200 views.

* The original version of this story was incorrect in saying the passenger was able to rejoin the ship.
