Lines to reboard??? Should we expect ling lines when reboarding the Carnival Victory at Jamaica and Grand Cayman ports? I have been on smaller Carnival ship and there was no wait however I had 60 min wait to re-board on a larger ship years ago. I have a group of 100 plus people and I am trying to help them plan their time because we have early dining. Anyone out there can help me?

Since Grand Cayman is a tender port, you should allow additional time to get back to the ship, as there can be a wait as the tender service has limited capacity.

Lines and waits should be much less of a problem in Jamaica,

But keep in mind that if your group of 100+ shows up at the same time in either port, that in and of itself will create a line and lengthen the wait time for everyone.

Hope that helps.

Agree w/Simon where it pertains to any tender port.

If you go off on your own after all the hubbub of the morning excursions, you won't have a problem with lines. Try to plan your return with the same thing in mind. If excursions are timed to return at 4-5pm range, return a bit earlier and you won't have much of a problem.

Yes, when tendering you must allow more time. Also your large numbers will be a problem whenever you return to a ship.

Thank you so much!
