Amber Cove Welcomes Carnival Next Fall

Cruise News – Dec. 19, 2014

Cruisers will be able to visit the new destination of Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic beginning next October. The first ship to call at the North Coast port will be Carnival Victory, which arrives on October 6, Carnival officials said.

Eight Carnival ships will make a total of 37 calls at the port between October and April, Carnival officials said.

“Amber Cove is destined to become a cornerstone in creating new itineraries from several U.S. home ports,” said Terry Thornton, Carnival’s senior vice president of itinerary planning. “It will provide an unmatched combination of ‘fun in the sun’ activities and eco-tourism opportunities along with unique sightseeing, dining, and cultural experiences to create a lifetime of wonderful vacation memories for our guests.”

The port, which will have two berths for big ships, is just outside the historical town of Puerto Plata. Passengers will find cobblestoned plazas lined with retail shops, themed restaurants and bars, and a marketplace featuring local crafts.

Shore excursions will include beach, adventure (including horseback riding and 4×4 tours), water sports, and culinary and cultural options, officials said.

The nearby Ocean World is one of the region’s largest marine adventure parks and home to a variety of marine animals. Guests can also visit Puerto Plata or travel by speedboat to Paradise Island, one of the Caribbean’s top snorkeling and scuba diving destinations.
