Yes, they have moved the turning basin a half mile to entry. The Magic and Mariner both are turning there, then backing to the pier (or backing to the turning basin-if they need other side of ship on the pier). One of the reasons they are doing this is not that the port is too small it is because it is so busy. They now have several new dry docks, drilling rigs, etc. opposite the cruise terminal.

They were dredging when I was there last week. I'll look at the dredging progress when I go back in two weeks.
