4) What is a port shuttle?

If we're not able to dock close to the port entrance, it might be a short walk or bus ride to the port gates. In some places, there'll be a shuttle bus to take you from the ship to the port gates. This will either be provided by Marella Cruises or the local port authority.
If it's operated by us, it'll be free, but there might be a small fee for buses run by the local port authority. It'll depend on what berth we're docked at and is only confirmed during the cruise.
