Re: what are Tender Ports?
Some ports the ship pulls up to a dock and you walk off. In other ports the ship for one reason or another cannot dock. They anchor
and you are "tendered " ashore on the ships own tenders or locally provided tenders. Tender services are FREE and part of the fare you paid. Where are you going?Maybe I can tell you which ports are which. Some people make a big deal about the inconvenience of tendering. Just relax and enjoy it as yet another little adventure on your cruise.

Hi Joe & Dianna,
You will then be tendering in Grand Cayman, just allow some time for this and plan your day there accordingly. Hope you have plans to snorkel with the Sting Rays there, its awesome!

Have a great time!

You tender in Grand Cayman. The first few tenders off in the morning are packed full and you will have to wait in line, so have a leisurely breakfast and get on the tenders a little later.
I was on the Sensation in December and had a great time, you will too.
