Default Ports of call - transportation

We'll be taking our first cruise on the Carnival Pride on 12/7 to the western Caribean. There are 4 days in port, and I believe that some of them will involve going on shore via a tender or some sort of a shuttle vehicle. What we're wondering is, about how often does this tender run between the ship and the port, and back to the ship. Or does it just make one trip in the morning and another in the afternoon.
I haven't seen any posts anywhere that ask or answer this question, so here it is from a newcomer to cruising. Thanks in advance for the info.

Hi J & G,
They will actually run the tenders all day, taking cruisers to shore and returning them to ship. If you have a shore excersion, you will be one of the first off the ship, and depending on the ship, they usually run more than one, so just adjust for some time to get to shore and get back. They will let you know what time the last tender will leave shore before you sail, so keep that in mind too.

In case you haven't already read through the section here at Cruisemates for "first cruisers", here is the link, lots of good tips:
