We went on the beach horseback riding excursion. The tour to get there was fine. But they were behind schedule and we had to wait in something like a barn for 30 minutes minutes. Then they put us on the horses, who were all kicking each other! Then we got to the beach, we never went into the water with the horse, which was ok. But the description said we would spend an hour on the beach. We got not even 5 minutes, that really irritated me. One girl even cut her leg when riding the horse, it was not that safe. We got back with an hour and a half to spare. Did the zip line, nothing great. Wish they had a beach or something nearby. The excursion desk though did giver us a partial refund for the excursion.

Cab rides to the nice beaches were super expensive. Prob should have gone to the nearby pool area. Got some cool pix of the big Amber Cove letters.

Port is away from everything. We hired a car and drove around parts of the island.

We took the monkey kingdom excursion. Awful!!! Nowhere did it say there was an hour and a half bus ride to the monkey park where you spend 30 minutes before driving another hour and a half back. Terrible.

Don't bother paying for excursions! $20 to zip line all day. Free pool and slides, plenty of seating and a swim up bar Loved it

We reted an "oceanside cabana," but when we got there, we found it was a small cabin on stilts in the water! It was very nice, and likely would have been my favorite day had the weather been nicer. Cool and rainy throughout our time there, so no use of the water toys (kayaks, paddleboats) and no swimming. But the facilities were nice. Can't control the weather! Read Less

Amazing and can't wait to get back. When we stepped off the ship I swore I stepped into a movie. The mountains and land is so plush with vegetation that I swore King Kong would come through the trees, later we found out that portion of the island was used in Jurassic Park, The people are amazing and our tour guide there was amazing. Not only did we travel around the city but we went to an actual chocolate factory and cigar factory. I was able to pick up so wonderful chocolate samples and coffee that smells just as amazing as it taste. The Amber Cove/Puerto Plata tour was wonderful we a beautiful stop for some authentic DR feast. Read Less

We walked around the shops. We were very unfamiliar but we went to the pool, found a cool bar and Melissa had a fresh drink made out of a raw coconut

took 45 minutes standing in line, then a very long walk to get to the busses, another 15 minutes standing to get into a bus. Our bus guide did not seem to be knowledgeable about the history, population and data other than the power plant. And no fault of Princess, but a tour past the landfill and rambled shacks? Either eliminate this one or fix it fast. Read Less

Amber Cove is not as nice as Princess Cays. The trip into Puero Plata was a waste of time and money. Puerto Plata on the outskirts looks like it was built in a city dump.

We went to Chocal, labeled bags, sorted seeds and planted seeds. We paid good money to do hand labor, but we approve the initiative to support island co-ops.
