New Cruise Hub For Dominican Republic

Date Posted: 16 May 2012
Category:

Carnival Corporation — the company behind P&O Cruises, Cunard Line, Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruises and Holland America Line — has announced plans for a new $65 million cruise ship centre in the Dominican Republic.

The new 30 acre Amber Cove Cruise centre is being built at the Bay of Maimon and is due for completion in 2014. Carnival are expecting the new cruise hub to host 8,000 cruise ship passengers daily — vastly improving on the 350,000 cruise ship passengers a year who visits the Dominican Republic in 2011.

The Amber Cove Cruise Centre is being built in conjunction with local shipping company, Grupo B&R, and the waterfront property will boast fantastic amenities. As well as offering a gateway into the Dominican Republic, the cruise centre will feature a market place, restaurants, bars and a water attraction — quite possibly a water park.

Last year saw a 1% decrease in passenger numbers to the country and Carnival are hoping their $65 million investment will reverse that trend. The Caribbean is set to remain a firm favourite among cruises, especially with the cruise lines taking control of the new terminals that have been built in the region over the past couple of years.
