And that one day is tendering which has not gone well from what I have
read. On my sailing we could not tender and went directly to Hamilton.
On the days when they have been able to tender there have been long
lines for the tender.

Even if they don't make the town cut large enough for Explorer size
ships, at least they should make it so that Summit, the HAL ship, and a
Panamax NCL ships can fit there. Then maybe even RCI might think about
one of the Radiance class ships for there. And the two docks in St.
Georges are pretty far apart. So it's not like in Hamilton where
fitting 2 ships was a problem.
