Queen Mary 2 made her inaugural call to Carnival Corporation’s newest Caribbean cruise port, Amber Cove, in the Dominican Republic today. Amber Cove is located on the northern tip of the Dominican Republic and is located 100 miles south of Grand Turk.
Queen Mary 2 is currently on a 13-night Caribbean cruise out of New York City with stops in St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, and Tortola before stopping in Amber Cove. She is due back in New York City on November 25.
Amber Cove first opened in October with the inaugural call of Carnival Victory. The opening marks the return of regular cruise ship visits to the Puerto Plata region for the first time in nearly 30 years.
In its first year alone, the new pier will host 23 different cruise ships and over host over 350,000 guests.
