I think it is every hour. We have been there twice on different lines and stayed till the last tender so I am not excatly sure how often they run. It can be a tedious affair in rough weather.

I was on the Sensation in December and they had 3 large tender boats running continusly. The last tender leaves land 45 minutes before the ship is to sail I believe.

It the weather is rough they skip the port all together, don't want to chance damaging the ship with one of the tenders.

I think they just head towards Mexico, the next port, and possibly give you more time there. You should get a refund of the port taxes for that specific port if the ship can't stop there, usually in a shipboard credit.

about every 20 minutes give or take a few each way. You will notice that there are always tenders tied to the ship and to the dock that are either loading or unloading.

We did Grand Cayman last year on the Paradise. It runs continually back and forth. I would give yourself 20-30 minutes to transfer, especially at peak hours. Have fun!

We are going on the Sensation in July also. What date are you going? Have you heard anything about the weather at that time of year in the Western Carribean?
