Was wanting to do a NCL excursion in Bar Harbor to spend some OBC. Hoping it will also get off the boat quicker since it’s a tender boat. Is there any of the excursions you would recommend? The carriage ride looks interesting.

The carriage ride does look amazing. I booked it for my cruise in October. i am also wondering how the excursion works with tendering. This is my first time booking a ship excursion on a tender port.

If you have a ship's excursion booked, you will get priority tendering. The meeting point will be on your ticket, which will be in your stateroom either when you board or the night before, depending on the cruise line. IIRC, NCL will deliver the tickets when you get into your stateroom on embarkation day.

If you book a CL excursion, you should be given priority in tendering. If you are asking about the Acadia National Park & Carriage Ride excursion, you''ll board an excursion bus and go directly to the stables after tendering in.. When I did the carriage rides, it was called Wildwood Stables. Apparently, it has changed hands and is now called Carriages of Acadia. I've enjoyed the carriage rides I've been on. Once the carriage ride is done, you board the coach for a ride to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, weather permitting.

 

If the excursion doesn't fill, I would take an excursion that tours the ANP and includes Cadillac Mountain.

What time would people allocate for tendering/getting off the ship? We're trying to catch a 10am non-ship excursion.
