  1. No, and where I work is not even close in proximity or industry. The only re-post on these four posts was for the walking directions of the cruise terminal, not Hilton La Romana, which I'm assuming you are referring to since I don't think you would advertise a cruise terminal. As I mentioned in each re-post, the original YouTube link didn't work for the cruise terminal walking directions. I wish you could delete or edit a post, but since that's not an option, I figured the re-post was the way to go, and it would make more sense to explain why I was re-posting the video directions, rather than

  6. I have not been to Amber Cove, but believe it is owned by Carnival and has a beach right there. Others who have been there can speak more of it. But I have been to La Romana and aside from a few shops in the cruise terminal there is nothing around so you will definitely want to do something here if you want to see the area. I have been to La Romana twice on cruises and both times have gone to Hilton La Romana, an all-inclusive resort that you can get a day pass for. They have pools, a swim up bar, beach...just your typical resort. You can snorkle off your beach (we bring our own g
  7. Below is a video of walking directions from the cruise ship, through the cruise terminal, to where buses for excursions and taxis are located. For those interested, I highly recommend getting a Cruise Day Pass to Hilton La Romana All-Inclusive Resort, which will require you to take a taxi. At the bottom of this post is a video on Hilton La Romana.
  8. Follow up to my above post about Hilton La Romana All-Inclusive Resort Cruise Day Pass... According to a post from Hilton La Romana's Twitter account this past week, they have a huge new pool that has several waterslides. It looked like a lot of fun, but if interested in this, be sure to double check that it is included in the day pass. It would be an added bonus for me, but I would still go to Hilton La Romana if that was only for extended stay guests. Also, immediately below is a video of walking directions from the cruise ship, through the cruise terminal, and just
  9. Follow up to my above post... I saw something this past week on Hilton La Romana's Twitter account that looked like the old pool I mentioned they had in 2013 with a bunch of activities, had several huge water slides and looked like a lot of fun. I would guess this would be open to cruise day pass guests, but double check with them when booking in case that's for extended stay guests only. Below is a video of walking directions from the cruise ship to just outside the cruise terminal where the taxis are located to take you to Hilton La Romana.
  10. Aruba - Last October we took a tour of the island with a taxi guide, Iris, who told us we couldn't just go to the beach. We had to see the island. She was great! At the end of the island tour she dropped us off at the Hilton, which is on Palm Beach. The Hilton grounds were beautiful walking to the beach (see below video), but we thought the umbrella and chair rentals were extremely expensive, so we took a taxi to Amsterdam Manor at Eagle Beach, where we had gone in 2013. At the bottom of this post are some pictures from Amsterdam Manor/Eagle Beach. The umbrella and chair rentals at Amsterd
  11. Everyone's preferences and ideas of fun are a little different, but I have been to La Romana twice on cruises and wish all of the cruise itineraries stopped in La Romana so that I could go to Hilton La Romana on every cruise. We were last there in October 2019 and it was under new management from the fist time we were there in 2013, but we loved it just as much as the first time. It is normally an all-inclusive family resort, which I think it is now, although when we were there it was under renovations and considered adults-only at the time. You mentioned you are an active family and I think
  12. I have not had a spa interior stateroom before, but I have had interiors at midship and forward from the first deck to 11th deck and balconies all at mid-ship and two or three decks below lido deck. If my choice is to cruise and have an interior or not cruise at all, or simply to save money, definitely go for the interior. And, while it is a personal preference, we prefer the balcony and its hard for some people to go back to an interior once they have tried a balcony. We love balconies and spend a lot of time enjoying the view and relaxing from the balcony. We even enjoy bring br
  13. You never know what you are going to see while waiting for your ship to sail. We were fortunate enough to see this manatee swimming down the Main Channel in Miami before a cruise in October 2019.
  14. The Carnival Horizon is a beautiful ship. It was fun to sit in the atrium on watch the Dreamscape LED sculpture constantly change. Enjoy some of the still photos from the sculpture.
  15. Here is a link to a video of walking directions to the bus stop. We did a tour with a taxi/tour guide initially, as she talked us into it, rather than going straight to the beach. She dropped us off at Hilton/Palm Beach (which was beautiful), but we decided to move on. As the first poster mentioned if you took the bus to Palm Beach it would stop at another hotel on Palm Beach. After leaving Hilton, we went to Amsterdam Manor on Eagle Beach. We took the bus back, which is right there at Amsterdam Manor. The chairs and palapas are not free, but were much more reasonable than at the Hil
