Default millie tenders?

Just curious about tenders. What exactally are they? Does the Millenium ship use them and all the ports they go to? Is it a long process to leave the ship. Any information will be helpful. Am booked in Dec. Can't wait.

The tenders are the ships life boats. Cute little things. They have seating up above or inside. Lots of fun to ride them in to the island.Which itinerary are you on? I know on the Eastern Caribbean, they only tendered in once. That was at the Catalina Island. Everywhere else they docked.

We are going to the Western Caribbean. San Juan, Catalina, St. Tom, and Bahamas. Do you know which ones tender? Also any luck booking tours on your own and not through the cruise line? Are other tours right at the pier. Don't want to miss any land excursions, but would like to try and book some myself.Thanks!

First of all the itinerary you describe, is the Eastern Caribbean! The only place you tender in is at Catalina Island.I didn't notice tours offered right off the ship, however we weren't really looking for that. We took a taxi in St. Thomas to Sapphire Beach.There are free shuttles to the Havensight Mall for shopping there. (You are expected to tip the driver.) We were so late getting into San Juan that we just walked to Old San Juan and shopped a little and walked back.Nassau we shopped in town, walking distance, and came back to the ship for lunch. Then we water taxied over to the Atlantis Resort.

on 3/23 Mercury, the tenders to Catalina were mostly the lifeboats & were a bit rough going to say the last...those on excursions to Casa de Campo got larger & much more stable tenders..Also it took 1 1/2 hours to get onto the tender from the Theater--not well organized compared to Coco Cay. How is the tender process on St Kitts on Celebrity . That's on our next cruise...?
