As Dave said, there is no dock at Coco Cay. Those little tender boats can get bounced around fairly easily, and if they are loaded with people, someone could get hurt. ANY cruise line is not going to intentionally put it's passangers in danger-ships sometimes miss ports, and it is usually because of some sort of weather problem. When you book your next cruise, see if you can stop at Labadee, a similiar type port, but much nicer by far. After several stops at Labadee, Coco Cay didn't measure up to our liking. Sorry for the inconvience (sp), but it was for the best. How was the rest of the cruise?
