The Black Pearl's crew prepare to abandon ship.

"Abandon ship. Abandon ship or abandon hope."
Joshamee Gibbs[src]

Abandon ship was a term meaning to leave completely and finally, ceasing to operate or inhabit a vessel, commonly in response to an impending threat. Given as an order by a ship's officer.

History

Jack Sparrow gave his crew the order to abandon ship when the Black Pearl was attacked by the Kraken.[1] As the Black Pearl and the Flying Dutchman fired upon the Endeavour, Theodore Groves gave the order to abandon ship.[2]

Behind the scenes

"The Pearl was pitching and yawing violently. So violently we could not maneuver...could not man the cannons...so violently it actually came to my mind to give...the order. THE order! THE order! The order no man who calls himself captain ever dreams he’ll be givin’! Abandon ship."
Hector Barbossa[src] (screenplay draft)
