we took an excursion with a third party operator of the 27 waterfalls. My wife and I did I think the 13 waterfalls, which was actually almost all of the way up as the 27 waterfalls wasn't that much further apparently and had just a bunch of smaller ones. There were some really high jumps and before jumping it was pretty freaky but it was very memorable and fun. I did end up with a sore bottom after this excursion though. Read Less

This was an easy port day as you just walk off the ship and they have a giant pool with water slides and a lazy river and loungers. The only thing they charged for was zip lining. I didnt go but heard it was $20 was an all day pass.

Waterfall at Danajuga was hard and scary. Thrill seekers will love this. Long hike up, up, up. Rock water slides and platforms into the water 20 ft below.

I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 ... Read More
I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 for all day long. The port was not crowded since a Carnival ship had gotten there and decided the seas were to rough and changed their mind about docking and went onto somewhere else. Sorry for what they missed but LUCKY US! Read Less

View from the ship was beautiful. Did the Panoramic City Tour booked through HAL. Glad we did it - if you stay in the cruise ship center, you will not really see the culture of the Dominican Republic.

During this port, we did not take excursion with the ship. Instead we walked outside the Amber Cove gate and took a taxi to the 27 water falls. The cab ride last year cost of 50$ for the day. This year it was 90$ but we had two additional people. The waterfalls tour through the cruise cost 130$ per person. It cost us 27$ per person with a meal included. I would highly recommend the waterfalls, but on your own. Read Less

Original snorkeling excursion was cancelled because of the wind. We ended taking a "power snorkeling" excursion which was "okay." Ride by open bus was long and rough, and bote didn't have enough "power equipment" for all the guests. But staff was very nice and friendly. Read Less

Didn't care for the excursion as it wasn't described right by the shore excursion representative.

The area looks rundown, but could be because of the recent storms. Did the dolphin encounter. The kids loved it, the dolphins were fun. One of them even played catch with a rock with us while we waited.

Did a beach escape to Blue Jacktar resort with Shore Excursioneer which was nice, water had a lot of small pieces of seaweed in it. Someone from the excursion stayed at the beach with us and made sure everything was to our liking.

Lot's to do at this port if you want to avoid excursions. Enjoyed strolling through the shops and boutiques. Although there was no beach is within the port, there is a beautiful resort style pool with swim up bars and in pool loungers. We spent most of our day here and had a few drink with lunch at the pool side restaurant. Access to the pool is free whether or not you purchase drinks or food. Drinks and food are reasonably priced. Local staff on this island are friendly and never bothered by anyone trying to sell anything. A very nice relaxing day spent all at the port. Read Less

Take a cab to do the waterfalls avoid carnivals excursions. It was only $30 including cab and jumps. We also did more falls than carnival does. This is an amazing excursion and totally worth it. Keep in mind it does require a hike to get up into the falls so must be able to walk a decent distance. Read Less
