The new Amber Cove port on the north coast of the Dominican Republic is rapidly coming together a little more than a month before the first ship is scheduled to arrive on Oct. 6.
The port, being developed by Carnival Corp. and a local partner, already has a 1,280-foot pier, a bus and taxi staging area, cabanas and the finished shells of bars, restaurants and shops.
Landscaping is being planted and the interiors of the structures are ready for build-out.
Carnival Cruise Line has been hard at work on their own private port on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic. 44 tours have been designed for the area which will appeal to a wide range of cruise travelers.
