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

We did the 7 Falls Tour but not with the cruise ship - they wanted $80/pp and I didn't feel $320 was realistic. Instead, we rented a car, drove the 20 mins ourselves and paid $7/pp to do MORE than what the original excursion was.

The utv was great however it was so rushed taking pictures was a problem and considering the price it was a sparse lunch

Not a lot to see in the town only had two stops to shops with very little and a church in town center. Much more shopping at new area by dock and great restaurant and bar there along with swimming and a zip line

I did not take an excursion at this port and was very dissapointed. It cost $35.00 for a ride each way to go into town. Otherwise you are stuck in the touristy terminal area. I won't go there again.

We made it onto the island. Walked around for a very short time and it started to rain. We got on line for the tender. The hard rain came in on the lower level, and the people on top had to find places to stand below on the lower level too. Every time we hit a large wave the water splashed everyone on either side. The rain was NOT the fault of the ship or Carnival, but it made for a terrible day. Read Less

Could have skipped this tour, would have been better off to just stay in the Amber Cove resort. Not really anything to see once you left the resort, except we did see one nice beach but the tour didn't even let you out there.

Did an excursion into Puerta Plata. Went to a rum factory, art museum and a "fort". Too long, and rather depressing.

Actually boring. Nothing in port because it's too new. NOt sure how the excursions were but we did have great weather.

They've spent a lot on the terminal, to make it attractive, but there isn't much of interest inland.
