I read that there were several tugs involved in the word about police boats though.

I watched the Fantasy come in Saturday on the webcam. There were no police boats, but she did have 3 tugs help her turn around and dock, as the winds were still pretty strong.

I didnt see the webcam this weekend but i do know that the ships thrusters not just the Dream class can only withstand certain conditions. Its an added safety measure put in place by the port. Under certain conditions a ship of a given size gets a certain number of tugs. The bigger the ship the more tugs. Ill try and find a link for it. It basically spells out step by step plans.

Its up to the captain to request tugs not the port
