Join us for a special preview of Carnival Corporation’s new and highly anticipated Amber Cove cruise port in the Puerto Plata region of the Dominican Republic. We will be there five weeks before the port officially begins welcoming guests on October 6, 2015. While on location, we’ll be checking into Carnival Corporation’s new cruise brand, Fathom, an entirely different way to travel with impact on our world. In store: a look at some of the impact activities that travelers will be doing with locals when the fathom journeys begin in April 2016.
Carnival Corporation’s new $85 million Amber Cove facility represents the largest cruise industry investment ever made in the Dominican Republic, and will feature a two-berth port able to accommodate the largest cruise vessels in operation today. Carnival Corporation has monitored the various stages of the port’s construction progress with the use of drones, an innovative development that is being used for the first time as part of the company’s port development process.
More to come, next week, live from the Dominican Republic.
