Find Your Cruise
Tendering is as quite efficiently answered below by blythe Dundee by means of a lifeboat. Please don't let this put you off it is not a problem! Allow plenty of time as there can be queuing involved but don't let it spoil you trip ashore!
Tendering means the ship for one reason or other cannot be berthed in the harbour and a number of the lifeboats are also geared up as tenders to take you ashore. In some ports there are arrangements for the dock authority to help out with their tenders as well as the ships but less and less these days.
