The cruise line says it has been pivotal in pushing Amber Cove, Dominican Republic, and Ensenada, Mexico, over the one million guest threshold in 2023. Both ports recently announced their one millionth cruise guest as 2023 drew close.

They both celebrated the passenger landmarks in late December. The two milestones were marked upon the arrival of Mardi Gras on December 20 at Amber Cove and at Ensenada aboard Carnival Radiance on December 27. Local dignitaries and ship leaders attended both occasions.

“We’re delighted that our guests set these important distinctions for Amber Cove and Ensenada,” said Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy. “Amber Cove is one of the best destinations in the Caribbean. Our guests love the relaxation and adventure.”

“Likewise, Ensenada has grown into a strong part of our West Coast offerings. Our guests love its rich history and vibrant culture.”

Amber Cove, located just outside Puerto Plata on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, welcomed its first Carnival ship in 2015. The cruise port is a self-contained destination with pools, bars, shopping, and various shore excursion options.

“This represents unstoppable growth for Puerto Plata and its people who directly receive the benefits of these achievements,” remarked the Dominican Republic’s Minister of Tourism, David Collado.

Carnival sails seasonally to Ensenada from San Francisco and year-round from Long Beach, CA. The new Italian-style fun ship Carnival Firenze is set to add more choices from the West Coast with four-day cruises visiting Catalina Island and Ensenada. It will sail five-day cruises with port calls in Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada.
