Great Analogy SonnyV.......Exactly.
Doesn't take as long to get to dock as it does coming back if you wait until the last minute to try to get back to the tender boat. Long lines. Maybe go an hr before the last tender boat is to leave to ship. might lessen the strain. Have a fantastic cruise. Freedom is a huge ship & its like being in a small city on the ocean. You won't even know you're cruisin' except for all the fun you'll have & all the nice people you'll meet. Some might be friends for life!!!!!!
