Only having cruised on the Pearl and the Jade, I have either queued up for a tender ticket or taken an excursion at a tender port. The tender ticket in my opinion is a not a good system, as passengers seem to take up all the space on the stairs regardless of which ticket number they are holding, which of course causes massive congestion and irate passengers. I understand though that on the Breakaway, Getaway and the Epic,(which we have a booking for next year) that you can book your tender time slot by the inter-active TV in your cabin.My question however to those who have cruised on these ships, is how does it work in actually getting on to the tender at your time slot if you do not hold any actual paper work? Does everybody simply arrive at the designated area to get onto the tender at their time slot with nobody trying to push in? If this is the case, I will be surprised (nicely)
