Cruises from Amber Cove
Amber Cove, located near Puerto Plata (aka Silver Port), on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, is a new $85 million port purposely developed for cruise passengers by Carnival Corp. It opened in mid 2015, and it will be the first time since the 1980s that a cruise ship has stopped at what is known as the Amber Coast, so called for its abundance of the translucent, burnt-orange stone. Cruise guests experience the natural beauty and wonder what makes the Dominican Republic such an attractive tourist destination. Dozens of shore excursions are available.
