As we say - there are no silly questions. A tender port means that your cruise ship will anchor out and will transport you to the pier by smaller boats. Depending on the cruise line the boats will either be owned by the cruise line or contracted out to a local firm. It is a quick fast moving (usually) experience.

if more newbies asked questions on the Titanic things might have gone different.....ok bad joke.
Most tenders I have seen are actualy the life boats from your ship, which is kinda cool to see them being used.
