[b]This being our first cruise, we are more interested in enjoying the ship as well. We don't plan on taking any excursions our first time around but would like to get off the ship and explore the new piers and possibly shop at nearby stores and possibly enjoy the nearby beaches.
I do have one newbie question however: When in a port that you have to tender to, can you get off the ship and then after a few hours get back on the ship, or is there a time schedule for the tender boats? What I am really wanting to know is, when you tender into port, how long until you can get back on the ship. We are taking a Caribbean cruise 7 day to Montego Bay, Jamaica/Grand Caymen/Cozumel[/b]
