Puerto Plata welcomes cruise ships



On 15 December last year, the cruise ship jetty in the port of Puerto Plata was festively inaugurated by President Luis Abinader.​

The new port is called Taino Bay and is actually the second cruise ship port of Puerto Plata. 10 km away is Amber Cove, the other cruise ship port. In the first week of January, two cruise ships have already docked in the new port. At the same time, two cruise ships also arrived at the other location, Amber Cove. There are already complaints that there is a major shortage of restaurant capacity. Does Sosúa also benefit from this? A Catamaran on the beach of Sosúa has already been seen with cruise ship tourists from Puerto Plata, so Sosúa will also benefit from it.​

Probably because everybody on board is sick.

I suspect a few percent of those on board were sick, causing a CV19 condition sufficient to cancel.
Very far from everyone on board.
I mentioned before I have a friend who works on a MSC ship told me a couple of weeks ago that practically everyone on the ship had COVID.

But I agree, gotta take that with a grain of salt.

They should test only people with symptoms.
Covid percentages would fall drastically
Let everyone catch it. It is not the death sentence many want us to believe it is
It has become the common flu
