Near the end of the video watch as one performer makes a brief dash for a seat, only to be defeated by his compatriot.

As you can see, this is a working harbour, not particularly conducive to cruise ships and their passengers.
While the danger area is marked with yellow stripes the rails for the container crane are raised above the surface and present a definite hazard to those walking to and from the various buses.

We tied up just ahead of the Aries J.
