hoped to be completed by September 2009 (according to another source). A primary motivation for this is the Oasis Of The Seas. Tendering will most definitely not be a good process for moving 5400+ passengers
That's right Dave. According to RC President Adam Goldstein, when I attended his webinar with AAA, he said that the new Labadee Pier will be completed for the Oasis because they will NOT be tendering from that ship. Also the ships' home port was between Miami and Port Everglades, but Miami wasn't in a position to make changes necessary to accommodate Oasis.
