My experience is that each cruise is different, even when it has been the same cruise line, same port.  The only totally consistent thing has been that there will be a letter in the cabin with instructions,
The above posts are typical, but nothing is for sure till you get the letter.

As noted above, it will be like Miami because you are going through U.S. Customs just like Miami.  Your letter in the cabin will tell you where to meet and you'll be escorted off the ship as a group and when the ship is ready, you'll be the first to board the ship.  If you have the same cabin, you'll leave everything in your room.

Thank you all for the info.  First time B2Bers and couldn’t be more excited.  
My big outstanding question is laundry.   Since we are traveling light, (thank you to the airlines for forcing this upon us!) what are the on-ship options for laundry?  Does anyone know the cost?  Our other option is to launder our clothes in port.  Is reembarkation a hassle if we close to go this route?

Laundry is $30 for a huge bag, returned next day (can pay extra for same day). Free if you have deep blue extras. There are also single item cost options including for pressing and specialist cleaning.

My experience has been that cruises either have self serve laundry or a large charge to do it laundry.  On VV, you get a HUGE laundry bag compared to other lines, for a cost of $30 (accurate as of Nov 2023) with next day return. This is VERY reasonable.  THey do a nice job and things come back folded better than I do it at home.   One bag per cruise is included in the DBE perks.  My suggestion would be to send it out just after you board for the second leg.  If you try to do it across the transition, you increase the cost of a mix up, especially if you are changing rooms.

Or, if you have DBE, send it so that it comes back before the turn around day....then send it again toward the end of the second leg so you will be taking home clean clothes!
