That question should have ended............tenders to ferry passengers ashore?
It depends on the size of your cruise ship. There are ports which will take the largest of cruise ships, such as Nassau in the Bahamas, but otherwise you should look in the cruise brochures as they should tell you which ports are tender ports.
If you know which cruise you are thinking of taking look up its itinerary and it will say. Sorry but there are so many islands and too many ships for us to guess an answer. ... Neil.
