What do modern sailors do when their ship is docked?

Do the crews of ships such as container and bulk good carriers leave the ship and get to see the place they are visiting? If not, why not?
General descriptions of the lives of modern seafarers that illuminate this question are more than welcome.

This question has come about from a discussion between my partner and I. We live in a small town with a big port but never see the crews from the boats in town. We are both curious as to why.
