Just wondering if anyone can tell me how long it takes to get off the Mariner when you have to tender off? Are the itinerary times that they show in the book accurate are far as what time the boat gets into port?
I cannot answer specifically about Mariner, but I have been on numerous RCL cruises. The times posted are generally correct. If you have a shore excursion planned and it is an early one, they will be sure to get you off among the first passengers. The crew will make an annoucement as to when you can leave via the tenders and where to meet to do so. Typically, it does not take long to get off the ship.
