Question Tendering Question....

We are taking a 7 night Western Caribbean Cruise going to Grand Cayman/Cayman Islands, Costa Maya, & Cozumel. I heard that one of these stops you have to tender to shore. Dose anyone know which stop it is and how far/long the tender time is? Thank you in advance.

Grand Cayman...
Guests with DCL excursions have priority on the tenders, but that doesn't mean they all tender first. It depends on the time of the excursion. Also, concierge guests have priority--they essentially can "jump the line" when they are ready to leave.
On the Fantasy they set up Animator's into a big maze of chairs where we were given a tender ticket and we were there just long enough to walk through. We were there early but were back about 150 people. Every 10-15 minutes, they'd announce that they'd be taking X number of people on the next tender. They would take that group of people to the gangway while the rest advanced through the maze.

Grand cayman is a tender port. The ride takes 5-10 minutes. It's all pretty painless.
