Carnival’s Amber Cove to open this fall

Carnival Corp. will open new cruise center in Dominican Republic in October.

(Sun Sentinel) Carnival Corp. & PLC says its new Amber Cove cruise port in the Dominican Republic is on target to open in October.

Ships from six of its nine brands will call on Amber Cove between 2015 and 2016, the Miami-based company said.

The new cruise port is along the Dominican Republic’s Amber Coast, which was a partial filming location for the original Jurassic Park movie.

Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Victory ship will be the first to stop there Oct. 6. Others include Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 on Nov. 22; P&O Cruises Azura on Dec. 5; AIDA Cruises’ AIDAvita on Dec. 11; Costa Cruises’ Costa Deliziosa on Dec. 31; and Holland America Line’s ms Eurodam on Jan. 19.

The $85 million facility represents the largest cruise industry investment ever made in the Dominican Republic and features a two-berth port able to accommodate the largest cruise vessels operating today, Carnival Corp said.

Amber Cove’s features include a waterfront welcome center with several retail and food and beverage outlets, and a recreational area with a pool, splash zone and green space.
