Hi....Caso de campo? Our ship will dock there from 7:00 am til 6:00 pm and we cannot find out any info as to shore excursions or what's there? Anybody who can share their experience and opinions on this stop, I would be grateful.
God Bless America!!
Although others have disagreed we disliked Catalina Island very much on our Mecury cruise. It is a small island off DR reached by tenders--for a beach day or shade under the trees. The reasons: the tenders were very much knocked about while getting into them ( 2 people clobbered) & during travel & very little staff help getting into them--they were life boats not regular tenders... , the snorkeling area was small, hard to reach & next to rocks.., no supervision & no flotation vests available (nothing compared to Coco Cay), the island was extremely croweded , the beach sort of drops off into the water, the shopping area had many shops all with the same stuff & widely varied prices-aggressive shopkeepers who spoke abt customers in Spanish, it took a long time getting lounges, the entertainment of native dancers was OK & the food -BBQ good but less sanitary than other spots....very few amenitites on the island & we were not comfortable leaving stuff onthe chairs....When I first posted abt this location last March many others did not agree but we eventually left early--it was the pits! Tablemates on the cruise who actually went to Casa de Campo & Altos de Chavon fared much better--had better tenders, better quality art & crafts etc. & a better time! We heard the golf was very expensive with no guarantee of a full 18 holes. If we had this stop again we'd go to Altos de Chavon!
