Some passengers said Dream cancels this port quite often. If so. what are the reasons?
Not only does Carnival cancel this port on occassion, so has Princess in the past.... Roatan is a tricky port for the captain to manuver the ship into a narrow channel. If the seas are choppy and the wind is high, the ship will be unable to dock just as you were told. Coxen Hole is used by NCL and they usually do not miss this port of call. But CCL uses Mahogany Bay (which they developed poorly) and is often un dockable.
