For the very large liners stabilisers are incorporated into the design to avoid increasing draught, which is costly and restricts entry into many ports. The stabilisers restrict ships roll the same as an increase in draught. HMS Eagle had a draught of 11m and transited up the Tamer numerous times, therefore the argument for cruise ships not visiting Plymouth cannot be attributed to lack of draught. All modern cruise ships are also fitted with bow thrusters that negates the requirement for tugs.
