Grand Cayman Tender Question
I am sailing on Conquest 1-16-05 and I have a ? about tendering in GC.

We have booked Captain Marvin's Snorkeling from 10am to 1pm. They said we should plan to be there by 9:30am. The ship pulls into GC at 7am (or so the itin says).

My question is since this is not a ship sponsored tour will we be able to get a tender in time to make our 9:30 snorkeling trip?

Any hints on how to get a tendering pass to ensure we make it on time?

Ron I asked this same question on another site and was told there should not be any problem. We're going at the same time.

Hi Rob,
Yes, I agree, you should be fine with that time frame. When they start to give out tender tickets, just be in the place early enough, but you should be fine.

Re: Grand Cayman Tender Question
My husband and I are sailing the Conquest Jan. 30th,2005. We booked the Stingray excursion through Captain Marvins for 8:30am. They want us there by 8:00am. Do you think we will have enough time to tender over and get there by 8:00am? Or should we re-schedule for the next time bracket? The ship is scheduled to arrive in port at 7:00am. Does it happen very often that the ship arrives late?

Thank you,

Re: Grand Cayman Tender Question
You should be fine with a 9:30 excursion.

Shellbell: If you can change the time to a later one I would. We had an 8:30 excursion in Grand Cayman and we were just able to make it. This was on Celebrity Mercury and we had priority tendering for being a suite passenger. If not for this we would not have made it.

Take care,

Thank you Mike for responding. I will take your advice and re-schedule.
