Very different setting than grand Turk but it was awesome! A huge pool area that our kids loved and the splash pad slide area for younger kids was perfect for our youngest son. The drinks weren’t too expensive and the activities and people were spot...More

We decided against a cruise shore excursion as there were none which interested us. We found there was no way outside of the cruise port to walk around the area. Most of the beaches were part of the various resorts at the cruise port area....More

This was our 1st time on the carnival magic. Our 1st stop was in Amber cove in the Dominican Republic. The island in general seems to be kind of poorer but the experience was great. We did an excursion and had a rum tasting unfortunately...More

This was not your typical cruise port. Shopping was a bit limited but the pool area made up for that. Nice pool with lazy river and swim up bar. Splash area for smaller kids and other activity areas too (basketball/volleyball/etc).

Beautiful place. Take the Sight Seeing shopping tour. Its 4 hours and you get to see beautiful Puerto Plata. Visit the house of Macroix for their awesome rum and learn about Amber and Larimar

Nice little port with limited things to do; unless you just want to shop, be sure to book an excursion to explore other parts of the Dominican Republic. There are a few good photo op spots in the port. There are a lot of great...More

If you want easy access, clean, safe and fun, then Amber Cove has your name written all over it! The however is that we wondered what the real Dominican Republic looked like. The view from the ship was stunning. Low hills covered in vegetation, sloping...More

This was such a nice port. You don't have to plan a single thing and walk in and be able to lay by a nice pool. It wasn't too crowded in the pool either. There are water slides and a beach nearby too. It was...More

There is no beach at the cruise center, only a large Pool. The entire cruise Center is fenced therefore I assume that you need to book an excursion or take a taxi.
