Does anyone know the location where Royal Caribbean Cruise ships terder their passegers at PEI? I am trying to locate the closest car rental company to the tender locaton. Hope is within walking distance. Also wonder wether there are tours. Would do that instead of driving.
You will probably dock in the capital city of Charlottetown. There will very likely be car rental places nearby or a short cab ride away. The ship may even be able to arrange that for you. If you are looking for a city tour, there will probably be a tour bus and again the ship can arrange that. If you want to see more of the Island, driving is really your best bet, i think. It's a small Island and you can see quite a bit in a day. It's a very nice place, mostly rural but with a lot of nice small towns and lots of good restaurants and craft shops.
I don't think any of the rental companies are within walking distance, but several (Enterprise, Discount, among others) will pick up and drop off. A quick call to RCCL would be able to confirm the exact dock they use. Charlottetown is a very small and easily navigable city by car, the whole city is set up in a grid fashion and there aren't too many one way streets. And while you won't be able to drive around the whole island in a day, the area around Cavendish is quite nice- Anne of Green Gables, restaurants serving mussels, lobsters, and other seafood, etc.
