amber-cove-dominicarepublicBack in 2011, Carnival Cruise Lines announced the construction of a cruise-ship terminal in the Bay of Maimon, situated about 15 minutes from Puerto Plata. Originally the project was estimated to be finished in 24 months. In Caribbean time that actually meant sometime in 2015, so it looks like we are right on schedule! Today Carnival announced the Amber Cove Port will be ready for guests on Oct. 6, 2015.

The cruise facility can accommodate up to two cruise ships simultaneously. The port will offer cobblestone plazas with a marketplace, restaurants, bars, recreation, and a transportation center.

The shore excursions will offer “fun in the sun” activities with eco-tourism and unique sightseeing, dining and cultural experiences. Expected to host one of the most extensive lineups of shore excursions in the Caribbean, Amber Cove touts activities such as horseback riding on the beach, snorkeling, off-terrain tours, scuba, plantation tours and private bungalow rentals.

Convenient access to Puerto Plata will also be available, offering visitors the chance to shop its art studios, rum and cigar factories, or stroll the Malecon, a three-mile-long boardwalk.

amber-cove-plans“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. The port will be featured on select sailings of Carnival Breeze, Carnival Glory, Carnival Splendor and Carnival Victory from Miami; Carnival Conquest from Fort Lauderdale; Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Valor from Port Canaveral; and Carnival Fantasy from Charleston.

The 30-acre, $65 million project expects to host 100, 000 passengers in its first year. It will be interesting to see if any of this expected tourism trickles down to those of us over here in Cabarete. Tell us what you think about it all in the comments.
