    If you are on a cruise ship they have a Dr.  Maybe you can talk to him

    Even if the doctor doesn't have Metoprolol on board, the doctor may have an adequate substitute.  Even if you're on a private fishing boat with friends and there is no doctor, you can radio for assistance.  Even if that's impossible fir some reason, three days won't kill you.  Your medication remains in your system for some time anyway.  Just try to relax by focusing on whatever you were planning to do on the trip, like fishing, enjoying friends, etc.
