I was just wondering do they charge you to take the Tender Boats to shore or is that included in the cost of the cruise? I'm not sure what to expect.

Thanks. This site has been wonderful in helping me get ready for my first cruise.

No charge for Tenders. It's part of the paid admission for fun on a cruise!

No cruise line charges for the tenders when in a tender port (i.e. no docking capacity for the ship).

And there really is no limit on the number of trips to and from teh ship you make. Just make sure you are back on board before the ship sails.

Ideally you would like to avoid the hassle of tendering and go to port where you can dock. This makes the whole proceedure go faster. On tender ports, they will let those with early excursions off the ship first and there is generally a line to get onto the tenders.

Hi folks,

isn't it surprising that not a single cruise line has discovered tender charges as an additional source for onboard revenue, yet?

I just hope they're not reading this...
Best regards,

Yes, I would not be surprised to see charges for a "priority" tender which bypasses the big waiting line.

"Passengers wishing to go ashore will be allowed access to the midship gangway hatch within 30 minutes of dropping anchor.
Tenders will be availabe for a modest additional charge"
