Default Southern Caribbean - Destiny - Tenders? Yes or No?

We'll be sailing on the Destiny in May - and I'm not sure whether we'll be using tenders or not. (hoping "not"). I thought I had ready someplace that all 4 ports do NOT use tenders - but when looking at pictures of St. Thomas Web Cams - looks like the ships are not at a dock. Curious if this is really the case. Also - is there more than ONE docking area at these 4 ports? (St. Thomas / Dominica / Barbados / Aruba)

Thanks very much

There is definitely a dock in St. Thomas. We were there a week ago.

St Thomas has docking in two locations that can handle 5 or six ships depending on size. There are days when one or two ships tender. I have seen Destiny in port more than once and it appears they dock at Havensight (the main pier).
Dominica's main dock was built for two ships and there is a smaller alternative dock. I believe Destiny will always dock not tender here.
Barbados' port can handle quite a large number of ships at dock. I have never seen any ship tender here.
Aruba has docking space for five or six ships these days. There is usually no tendering here.
