After a little digging I found some interesting info.
Carnival Cruise Lines knew of the changes Dec 22nd and are only now issuing statements to customers...just so they could continue to "hook" a few more passengers since Belize is the main destination port
The Port Rep in Belize knew the same information earlier.(the 20th of Dec.)
An Email was sent from operations to customer care dated 12.22.12 addressing the change.
There have been many reports that Carnival has been banned from the port for nonpayment to the tenders.
Even if the last part is not true, I find it very unprofessional of Carnival

It sounds kind of wild anyway, one of the recent people who went there said that they have a walled in port that is like 7 blocks long by 1 block deep. They said the gateway into the city was under heavily armed guards with armored vehicles in site of the gate?
They also said that if you want to pay the price and take the risk that they had tour guides to take you into town. Is this true, has Belize gotten so bad that they need this kind of arrangement at the port?
