Default tendering

Is RCL tendered in St. Maarten? Is it possible for people without an excursion to get off the boat early, say 8am?

Most ships dock in St Mart, now. If there happened to be too many ships in port the same day, some may be forced to tender.

If you've booked a ship's excursion, they'll get you off in time either way.

Excursions or not. You get off the ship when it is docked and they gove the okay. At times they hand out numbers and call that number when they are letting people leave. Get number 1 if they do.

If the ship docks at say 7am then yes, you will be off well before 8am. It usually takes a half hour or so after docking before they let anyone off. They need to secure ll the lines and gangways etc as well as clear whatever passes for immigration there. If you have to tender because the port is too full then those that have the ships excursions will get off first and you may need to wait for as much as a couple hours before those without excursion tickets can get in a tender but more likely an hour or so.
