They run until about one hour before the ship leaves and no you dont usually pay for them.
Welcome to the wonderful world of cruising please feel free to ask any questions that that you like i am sure that if someone knows the answer you will get a reply, answer you do not pay for tenders they normally act as a shuttle service all day up to about 1 hr before sailing. Don'T get mixed up between tenders and transfers, transfers normally means a bus /coach to the local town on some cruise lines this you pay for .

Tenders run all day and no you do not have to pay for them. Be warned though, the bigger the ship the longer the queue for the tenders - get in there first and get your ticket early.
There will be very few tenders on this cruise I'm sure.
Mostly the ship will dock at a pier and you can walk off and on at will. have a great cruise!
We went on Sea (not Ruby) Princess last year around the Med, though I'm sure the routine will be the same. The tenders run frequently and you shouldn't have to queue for too long. As I recall they run throughout the day. There is no charge for the tender. Tenders were only used twice on the med Adventure which we did; at Cannes and Ajaccio (Corsica) You'll have a wonderful time!
