Default Which ports are tender ports?

The Carnival website used to state if the ship docked or tendered on their website but I can't find it anymore? Which Caribbean/Bahamas ports require a tender? Thanks

Belize and Grand Cayman are always tender ports. Some that normally allow docking will require tendering if there are a lot of ships in port.

I know it wasn't asked, but for those that may want to know. Los Cabos, Mexico on the Left Coast is a tender port also.

So True
If the there are to many ships, dock is being repaired or a strike. We have run into all of these over 20 years. But not the norm. Remember tendering St Thomas due to dock over load of ships.
