We don't have any tugboats and I've heard no mention of them in any of the pier proposals I've seen. One good WHACK and all that pier would be so much rubble cluttering up the entrance to our port at the deepest part of the bay, meaning no other cruise ships would be able to get in.

The cruise ships have thrusters fore and aft that help them get turned around in the bay using the prevailing winds and currents, so they would simply do the same maneuver, except that the ships on one side of the proposed pier would have to do it against the prevailing winds and currents at any given time.
