Default docked vs. tendered schedule

Is there a site online to check if your cruise ship will be docked or tendered in a certain port?

I will be on the RCC Legend in January 2007. They list docked in Cozumel & Costa Maya and tendered in Belize & Grand Cayman. Someone else that is going on the cruise [who has been on a lot more cruises than I] said that all ports are docked.

I am much more apt to believe the RCC site, but wondering if there was another site that might be more up-to-date.

Thanks.

There are no docks in Grand Caymen or Belize. EVERY ship tenders in those ports.

The water is too shallow for the cruise ships.

They are building a new dock area and dredging the water to make it deeper.

STATUS OF CARNIVAL CRUISE TERMINAL UNCERTAIN The future of the planned US$50 Carnival Cruise Lines cruise terminal in Belize City is in doubt, as no progress on the terminal, which broke ground in February 2005, has been made in over a year and a half, and Carnival recently announced it will start construction soon on a US$40 million terminal in Santo Tomas de Castilla, on the Caribbean Coast of Guatemala. Santo Tomas de Castilla is near Quirigua National Park, Puerto Barrios and Rio Dulce.
