The local tenders in Belize can only handle 140 passengers at a time. Given the length of the tender ride and the amount of time to come alongside; that could be a big bottleneck for the larger ships. It wasn't an issue when we were there last week since we had only 700 pax. Of course, one tender did blow up an engine and was dead in the water until rescued.
