Default Tenders

My DH and I will be first time cruisers on the Rhapsody in July. DH is not a strong swimmer and is a little tentative about the tenders. Are they stable? How do you board them?

This message board is great, I'm finding answers to all of my newbie questions!

I've always found the tenders to be very stable. You board off the ship on a short gangway, usually off Deck 2 (or the Riviera deck).

not to worry. The tenders are basically small ferry boats. They are stable.
There are crew members to help you aboard.
