Don't know about the terminal, they weren't buildin one a couple years ago. But if the seas are rough, don't sit in the back of the boat cuz YOU WILL get drenched. The tenders in Belize are more like speedboats.

I was in Belize in May and no sign of a terminal. Because of the reef that goes up and down the coast, I doubt they'll ever build a terminal there. In order to do that, they'd have to cut out a big chunk of that reef to let the ships through and I'm sure lots of people would have a HUGE issue with that!

The tender isn't that bad. They told us to expect 20 minues, but it was actually between 10 and 15.

I was in Belize last week. There appeared to be a small pier of some sort being built but it is quite a ways from the tourism village and appeared to be some sort of industrial pier, not big enough for large cruise ships.
Because of the very shallow waters and coral reefs around Belize, I would doubt that a cruise pier will ever be built.
If the water is calm the tender ride isn't bad but if the water is rough, the tender ride could just be the highpoint of your day. It's usually 12-15 minutes, depending on the water.
