Default Roatan, Dock or Tender

We are going to Roatan on the Grand Princess in Early Feb. Looking at the Bridge Cam every Tues. it appears that the ship is moored right next to the shore. Yet they say that Roatan is a tender port. Can anyone tell me from experience if Roatan is a dock or tender port for the Grand, and if a tender port how easy or hard is the tendering. Thanks

There is a dock for 1 cruise ship. If two ships are in port, one of them tenders.

The Grand is the only ship there on 02.06, 02.13, 02.20, 02.27. So she should dock.

This month she was in port with with either two or three ships on 12.05 and 12.26. The other days she was the only one in port. Maybe this is why the web cam shows different pictures for this port.

Irish Shark Thanks for the info. Where did you find out that the Grand is the only ship in port those days?

Hello,

I just thought I would put my two cents in. We went to Roatan in December. Let me say, it was a most pleasant surprise. Roatan is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. It was my favorite place by far. We were docked by the way. A little advice though. We took a taxi to the camio factory, and it is something that can be viewed for free. Also, my husband speaks spanish, and was able to get a deal for the taxi. We paid $50 round trip for four of us. He took us to a beautiful free beach on the west side of the island. He stopped at the top of this cliff, and let us take pictures. He asked us what time we wanted him to come back and pick us up. He then took back a different way, and stopped once more to let us take another set of beath taking photos. I will try to put some up today or tomorrow. My advice is to take the taxi, and enjoy the beautiful beaches.

Have fun on your cruise.....

You are correct. When I was there, the Valor was the only ship in port that day, so we docked.
