Now that Amber Cove has been open for awhile, what are your thoughts on the port? We were there in January and I was not overly impressed.
I have not had a chance to get there, but would like to if I ever do carnival. Its showing a 65% on the port reviews.
I took a look at Amber Cove on the internet. I've never heard of it. From my understanding, it's fairly new. Maybe the location needs more time to become more seasoned at receiving cruisers.
It was opened last Aug/Sept I believe. The port was nice and clean, shops where mostly empty which is fine, but I found The excursions were lacking. We did the VIP Serenity's beach excursion and the location was nice but the water area was horrible.
I haven't been there yet, but am willing to try any port at least once.
I'm sure with time it will become a big spot. I know with Labadee, they have done more stuff since I was last there almost 10 years ago (god that sounds awful and long).
It will take time and $$$.
I wouldn't mind going to Amber Cove...I don't need a reason to go on a cruise..
We will hit that port in January 2017. I think it is safe to say, we don't have a high level of excitement about it.
Shoot I'm booking a cruise just so I can go to Amber Cove. I want to go climb the Damajagua Park Waterfalls. It's 27 waterfalls with natural waterslides! I saw it thru Shore Excursioneer and it looks awesome! I hope its a good port.
We were in Amber Cove in September. We enjoyed our Monkey Jungle excursion. Be aware that the monkeys will quite literally climb all over you. The climb back up was very strenuous on a very hot day. It just about got me. I had more trouble completing that than any other excursion we have done, to include cave tubing in Belize. The port area is on the Atlantic side of the island, so the beaches there are not as pretty. The next time we are there, we want to
see more of the island,
