I hope this is not a stupid question. But being a rookie cruiser, I figured, if I don't know, ask. My husband and I are goin on the Star Princess in 23 days (YEA!) we are figurin out which excursions to take. What does "tender required" mean? Any help or sugestions would be great.
Tender required means that there is no pier for the ship to dock at; therefore, a small boat, called a tender, picks up passengers from the cruise ship, and takes them to the port. Don't worry, that was certainly not a stupid question. Any other questions, please feel free to ask! :thumb
Jacque....Another important factor in tendering is that IF your ship says they will be giving numbers for tendering, you should be well aware of where to pick up your number, and get in line early, if you need to get off the ship as soon as it docks. 15 minutes in line waiting for a number, may mean 2 hours of waiting on a ship until your number is called. Each time it docks and they say tendering is needed you will have to get in line again.
