A little confused, as all ships dock in the port.

If you're thinking of Duty Free purchases, then they are accessible as you board the ship after disembarking, via a different entrance.  This is where you'll find one of the finest and varied Rhum stores in the Caribbean, along with a variety of products and souvenirs.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear, a tram, on the pier from the ship to the port facilities.

Having never seen a tram in FDF

Okay, let one start again.  

 

There are two docking quays for Cruise Ships, one directly opposite the town centre in Fort de France.  Here, on leaving the ship is a small arcade of stalls selling local wares etc, then a short walk to the town centre for shops, bars and a Carrefour.  There are taxis available for hire just outside the secure port area.

 

The other quay is a little further away from the Fort de France town centre, but it's just a shortish walk. There are no stalls on the quayside.  There is a local bus that goes to the town centre, which runs along the main road, about a three minute walk from the dock gates, and there are taxis available, again outside the secure port area.

 

Further quayside shops with Duty Free areas, are available at both ports, but only when you have entered the secure port area, and after passing through security.
