How do I get off the ship if we're at anchor?
Disembarking when your ship's at anchor is a very different experience to when it's docked portside. Getting ashore in this instance often involves the use of the ship's tender, which is accessed via the steps of a secure gangway.
Your safety and wellbeing are, of course, our main concern, and we want you to be as comfortable as possible when getting on and off your cruise ship. There are approximately 25 steps from the ship to the tender on our vessels (except Braemar where there is a maximum of seven). For health and safety reasons, wheelchair-bound guests, or those requiring more than minimal assistance to board/alight a tender will be unable to go ashore on these occasions.
Each cruise has it's own page, where you will find the detailed itinerary including any ports that will be at tender on your specific sailing.
