Amber cove, Dominican Republic

Recommended Posts

Hey all I am just wondering if any of you had booked a cruise that includes Amber Cove Dominican republic?

I see that there's no excursions available yet as I know the first ship won't dock there until October, but does anybody know when they will list the excursions? I read a bit that there will be some but it doesn't say when they will become available thanks so much

I believe Amber Cove port is on the Atlantic side near Puerto Plata? I've spent a week there and really did not care for the beach there as compared to Punta Cana. Amber Cove may also be near a SeaWorld type attraction, but I'm getting tired of seeing animals do tricks while they are pent up in cages.

DW and I will be going there February 2016 on the Valor, originally we were going to be going to Nassau, but Carnival swapped it for Amber Cove. Frankly I'm excited to see the new port and am glad to not be going back to Nassau. I don't expect excursion to by posted until April or May.

I see 29 available excursions now. There were only 6 the other day so they are rolling them out now I guess. Some look like a lot of fun too!

Will actually be there on Thanksgiving Day! Can't wait either. Seems like Carnival is working/building(?) a port area. I think it will be nice!

We are on the Fantasy 11 October cruise also. Looks like we will be the second Carnival ship to use this new port!! I've never booked an excursion through the ship, have always done my own and private tours. However as this is a new port for them I will stick with a ship offered one this time. Now to figure out which one to book... Not having reviews or the help of others who've been makes it tough lol

We are on the Breeze over Thanksgiving and it looks like we are stuck with La Romana. Guess we'll stay on the ship.:mad:

 

Yep, we are stuck with La Romana too...

I read that Carnival is stuck in a Contract with them through the end of January 2016.

I'm looking at an April 2016 breeze cruise and it's showing la romana. I've never been so I'm ok with it.

Is this going to be another Mahogany Bay, or is it something different?
