Default Are all ships using the new Labadee Pier?

Wondering if anyone has recently sailed to Labadee (other than on Oaisis 5 day cruise) and used the new pier. Based on the feedback from Paul, it appears that the new Labadee pier was up and running for Oaisis; however, I'm not sure if Freedom, Liberty or Independence is now also taking advantage of it. I'd hope they would; however, wanted to confirm with someone....

All ships calling at Labadee will use the pier. In fact the Oasis was not the first to use the dock. The Freedom had the honor two days before we arrived on the Oasis.

I read that they even plan to remove the tenders from Labadee so that won't be an option in the future.

Oh yes, not having to tender at Labadee was great! It really changes the dynamics of the port, being able to come and go from the ship with so much ease. I imagine I am like most people where you went ashore on the tender, but when you returned to the ship you stayed there, even if there was enough time to return ashore again. You just didn't want to deal with the tender hassles. Not anymore!

Sounds wonderful, the ease of going back onboard, just makes life in paradise that much nicer...Disney had the right idea years back, huh!

How nice not to tender anymore. We never had to much of a line getting to Labadee but always waited until the last tender to go back to the ship because the tender line was always way to long and we would rather lay in the hammocks than stand in line. What a great improvement.
