Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

We walked into town from the port as we like to explore on our own. A large percentage of organised tours were cancelled due to bad weather so the majority of passengers went to the town under their own steam. Initially there is a level pavement which then turns into an uneven path that is completely unsuitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Some passengers from our ship resorted to travelling along the road but this looked to be fraught with danger from passing cars and the road itself wasn't particularly even.
Having reached the town we were accosted by people asking for money and it then began to rain quite heavily which added more debris to the mudslide that had taken place earlier in the day. The overall experience wasn't pleasant and we decided to turn around and go back to the ship. The consensus amongst the passengers that we spoke to was that Dominica was the poor relation in comparison with other cruise ports in the Caribbean and no-one could understand why the ships berthed there when there are better ports of call available. Next year we will book a tour and hope that it isn't cancelled due to inclement weather.
