Default Confirm all stops are docking

From my experience on Carnival Destiny all of the piers are listed are direct docking. The only exception I read somewhere was if there were too many ships at that location that day.

Keep in mind, it will also depend on how many other ships are in that day. Our last trip to St. Maarten, we had to tender. The good thing about that, the tender dropped us off right at the pier in town, so there was no need to take that long walk or water ferry. I've also heard that its sometimes possible to tender in St. Thomas if its a busy day, but hopefully not.

Have a great cruise.

Here is a great web site that will give you an idea of how many and what ships will be in port with you on the same day:
