We went on a 9 day cruise with Norweigian Gem for spring break 2013 in March-April. We had 4 shore excursions, Puerto Rico first, St.Maarten, St.Thomas and best of all Samana. All the beaches were beautiful and clean, but when I first saw Samana, I was speechless, toatally taken away with the intimacy of the part of the island we occupied. I read somewhere that Samana is 80% privately resort owned and 20% for the public and cruise ship passengers . No matter, it is a heaven right here on earth. I felt like it was our own private beach, even with the other guest there. The people that work there were nice and not over powering like the people on St.Maartens, always pushing clothes and hats and jewelry on you. We relaxed and the children had a ball on the beach building sand castles with their new friends they met on the beach. I am making plans to go back next year with my husband, but instead of a crruise taking me everywhere I already been a hundred times, we will take a flight and go straight to a resort on Samana and revisit Our little piece of heaven on Samana.
