you can visit petra the following day from sunrise to sunset at your own pace before return to Aqaba and the ship

from entrance to Treasury take 40 minutes each way walking along the siq

cheers

If you want to minimize walking in Petra you will add quite a lot to the cost of your visit by taking a horse drawn carriage, you will miss a lot of the beautiful Siq not to speak of the poor condition of many of the horses in Petra .... you can take a donkey up to the Monastery but the donkeys are small so if you're tall or overweight that is just not a humane option.
