Where does Radiance of the Seas dock in Wellington NZ and is there a free shuttle?

Alright fellow travellers, who else has found the information about where Royal Caribbean’s Radiance of the Seas docks in Wellington New Zealand to be a tad confusing? I’d heard reports of being able to walk off the ship. I’d heard reports of a shuttle that you had to pay for, and I’d heard reports of a free shuttle. Here’s what actually happens!

I’m sorry about the loudspeaker in the background, unfortunately, every time we waited until Captain Trym finished his announcements, and just as we started, he would have some more to say. So this is the best version. If you have any trouble hearing anything, I’ve captioned it (in English), so just hit the captions button to read along.

If you’ve got any questions about how the process works, just let me know in the comments below and I’ll help however I can!
