Disembark
Used today by a spokeswoman for Princess Cruises (the operator of the ship that at least three movies will be made about).

Embark = "Get on a boat", and has come to be used figuratively for the first step in any (real or figurative) journey.

Debark = "Get off a boat", and is often used figuratively for getting off of any form of mechanised transport (a journey is not a required part of the definition, in any usage).

Both words are derived from French words, which have the French prefixes "em" (1) and "de" (0) attached to "barque" (boat).


Logically, therefore:
Disembark = "Don't get on a boat or start a journey".
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
