Cruises

From the first step on shore, you will realize how truly extraordinary the Dominican Republic is. It goes far beyond warm sun and unparalleled beaches. The Dominican Republic is an excelled cruise ship destination, with world-class ports that make it one of the most exotic destinations in the Caribbean and Central America.

 

All of this has contributed to the recent growth in Dominican tourism; more new and prestigious cruise lines are including the Dominican Republic within their routes. This increase in popularity has also been been helped by the Dominican Republic's modern ports all around its coast. Santo Domingo, La Romana and Samaná have facilities and structures that are perfect for receiving these mega-ships.

 

The Port of Santo Domingo, includes the brand new Don Diego and Sans Souci cruise terminals. Strategically located at the mouth of the Ozama River, the new terminals are perfect for docking modern luxury cruise ships.

 

The modern Don Diego terminal offers direct access to the historic Colonial City and allows passengers to quickly and easy access the dozens of monuments there.

 

The recently renovated La Romana Port, further east, receives large cruise ships and offers passengers very comfortable facilities on the shores of the Chavon River. Just a few minutes away is Altos de Chavón, the famous replica of a 15th century Mediterranean artist's village. A favorite escape of celebrities, the nearby Casa de Campo Resort is often called the best golf destination in the entire Caribbean. Casa de Campo features three spectacular courses designed by Pete Dye: Teeth of the Dog, the Links and Dye Fore. A few minutes away you will find his son P.B. Dye's beautiful and recent creation, La Estancia Golf Course. Resting among a secluded enclave above the Chavon River with new villas, it has a hotel with magnificent greens, and a club house for visitors. In addition, there are spectacular beaches nearby such as Bayahibe, Dominicus and Saona island.

 

Meanwhile on country's Northeast Coast, cruise ships can get as far as the impressive Samaná Peninsula and Bay, bursting with incredible tropical vegetation, including coconut palms that surround the calm waters of the bay. The region offers an endless number of options such as the El Limon falls and an area where you can observe humpback whales during their mating season from January to March. The Northeast Coast also has wonderful beaches such as Las Terrenas, Las Galeras, Playa Rincón, Cosón Beach and Cayo Levantado.

 

Some of the cruise lines that travel to the Dominican Republic include Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, the Mediterranean Shipping Company, Princess Cruise Line, Holland América, and AIDA.
