Big and clean pool. Wish we can see the beautiful beaches there be but the cruise ship leaves at 2:30 so no time to check other areas.

Seemed nice but with the recent deaths we decided to just stay in the Carnival controlled area and didn't eat or drink on the island. Would have been nice to go to another port while the issue was getting resolved.

Did the waterfall excursion. Had a blast. Kinda got swindled on the photos the company took. Bought a USB of all pics for $55. Every pic the guy took was on there, so all other people in grp were included. Literally on 4 pics of each group in our group. All posed, no pics of the jumps or slides. If I would have known what was on there, I wouldn't have purchased. Read Less

Private excursion with Iguana Mama to the Damajagua Waterfalls. Did 12 waterfalls. The hike will be tough if you're out of shape like I am but my husband, daughter and boyfriend had no trouble at all. Had a blast jumping and sliding ... Read More

Would probably do an excursion next time but plenty of things at the port to keep you entertained. Enjoyed the sky bar very much!

Beautiful city. Didn't book a tour, but enjoyed wandering around the port shops. They had everything! It's a long pier, so took a ride in a complimentary pedal-cab.

Excursion was Puerto Plata and Beach tour. Very well run, the usual stop in the souvenir shop to try Mamajuana and rums, coffee, but that was a fun experience. The beach was beautiful. The return tour was enjoyable with the guide pointing out many points of interest, driving past the fort (which we thought we were going to stop at). Unfortunately on this day they were burning garbage at the dump and we could smell it on the ship when we arrived, and the air was very smoky. Read Less

Very good excursion to a chocolate plantation and factory. I would not travel here unless on a sanctioned excursion. Very poor, dirty, unsafe.

Disappointed in their sanitized shopping port. Much more realistic view of Dominican Republic by taking cab to town. Vendors at top of cable car excursion were a tad pushy.

Bicycle Surrey for elderly a nice touch. Don’t be frightened off by high priced tours. Make up your own insist the driver stick to your plan and get out to see the island it is really quite beautiful.

Purchased the Puerto Plata Cultural Adventure excursion. It was a nice overview of the city. The highlight was an al fresco lunch in a local restaurant, Mares Restaurant and Lounge, followed by a tour of the owner’s orchid garden and art studio/gallery. The visits to the rum factory and a local museum celebrating the life of some general were boring. But our guide, Chuck, was very good. Read Less
