What we do when we end our 1st segment of the cruise depends on where we are at that time. If we are in port which offers sight seeing, we go ahore and enjoy the area. If not we stay onboard and catch up on the necessary things that have to be done. Then we go to a location, maybe, and watch new passengers board. So many times we will recognize someone who we have sailed with before. Then we have a reunion.
We have been on cruises which had 4 or more B2Bs. It is fun anyway whatever happens. If we go ashore we have to navigate through the incoming passengers. Sometimes we have to detour around them. But mostly there is no problem. The ship will give you a new boarding card before you arrive at the embarkation or disembarkation port and we can scoot right onboard.
Hope this explains somewhat.
