Carnival Corporation & Plc Key Developments
Carnival Corporation & Plc Expands Presence in Caribbean with $85 Million Port in Dominican Republic
Feb 18 15
Carnival Corporation & Plc announced it will begin newly developed Amber Cove port in the Dominican Republic beginning October 2015. Six of Carnival Corporation's nine brands will call on Amber Cove along the country's Amber Coast partial filming location for the original Jurassic Park movie to give cruise passengers another exotic location to explore as part of their vacation experience. With the opening of the new Amber Cove port, passengers will be able to make stops along the Dominican Republic's north Amber Coast. It will open expanded itinerary options in the Caribbean and will pair with the company's Grand Turk Cruise Center  only 100 miles to the north to anchor new central Caribbean itineraries for Carnival's nine global brands. In looking to the future, the port is strategically located to be incorporated into itineraries featuring potential stops in Cuba. The new $85 million facility represents the large cruise industry investment ever made in the Dominican Republic, and will feature a two-berth port able to accommodate the large cruise vessels in operation. 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. The facility, a joint project between Carnival Corporation and the Rannik family of Grupo B&R, is expected to host more than 250,000 cruise passengers in its first year of operation. It will provide approximately 430 local jobs. The port will open with a visit from Carnival Victory from the company's Carnival Cruise Line brand on October 6, 2015. Additional ships from the company's brands are scheduled to call on the port in late 2015 and through 2016 including Carnival Cruise Line's Fantasy, Splendor, Valor, Sunshine, Conquest and Breeze and Holland America Line's Nieuw Amsterdam. These visits will consist of 57 calls by 13 different ships across the six brands taking place between October 2015 and April 2016, accounting for more than 155,000 guests during this period. This new port facility in the Dominican Republic underscores the company's focus on creating great vacation experiences, as passengers sailing the Caribbean will have an exciting new destination to visit. It will also give Carnival Corporation's nine global cruise brands the ability to create more diverse itineraries, another important part of the cruise experience. More than 60% of cruisers are repeat passengers, and offering robust itineraries keeps the experience fresh and engaging for them.
