Cruises to La Romana (Casa de Campo)

About La Romana (Casa de Campo)

La Romana ranks as the Dominican Republic's youngest, smallest and most wealthy province. The Dominican Republic lies on the eastern side of Hispaniola, an island it shares with Haiti. The D.R., as it's known, stretches over two-thirds of the island and is about the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. It also claims the West Indies' highest mountain peak -- rising some 10,415 feet from the Cibao Valley. Christopher Columbus founded the first permanent European settlement in the D.R. in 1493.

The 7,000-acre resort village of Casa de Campo, which is like a town itself, is located in La Romana and features lots for cruise passengers to do and see. It's definitely the main draw during a day in port. Most of the more interesting options (particularly golf, tennis, skeet-shooting and horseback-riding) are available only through ship excursions, and a limited range of activities exist for independent-minded visitors. In addition, some ships don't even call on this port until mid-afternoon or later, which limits outdoor activities.

With a couple of exceptions, passengers who want to venture out on their own are limited to exploring the area's nouvelle villages, such as The Marina (which is meant to replicate Portofino) and the more charming Altos de Chavon (which was designed to resemble an old Spanish town). Both have a handful of restaurants and shops, which are pricey and designed to appeal more to Europeans than to Americans.

Why go to La Romana (Casa de Campo)?

Pros:

Casa de Campo resort offers beach access and water sports; a few local restaurants have tasty food

Cons:

There's not much to do in La Romana for those who don't visit Casa de Campo

Bottom Line:

If you'd prefer not to visit the resort, you might want to stay onboard your ship

La Romana (Casa de Campo) Cruise Port Facilities?

Casa de Campo is the main event, but you'll have to take a cab or shuttle bus to get there. There are really no facilities in the immediate vicinity of the dock.

Good to Know?

The Dominican Republic has a reputation for crime. Always be aware of your surroundings, stay in groups, and don't venture to out-of-the-way places when not on an organized tour or with a reputable guide. As a general rule, leave all jewelry and valuables onboard in your cabin safe, and carry only as much cash as you think you'll need. We recommend a money belt to keep your cash and room key safe while you're ashore.

Also be sure to pack bug spray; you won't have much of a problem outdoors, but you might use some restroom facilities (particularly if you're headed to the beach) without air-conditioning, making them perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes -- and they're vicious.

Getting Around?

By Shuttle: Major attractions -- in particular, Casa de Campo -- are not accessible on foot. Cruise lines often organize shuttle transportation from the ship to the resort; typically, shuttles take travelers on a 15-minute ride to either the Marina or Altos de Chavon sections. The shuttles run every 30 minutes.

By Taxi: Taxis line up at the dock. To travel the 6-kilometer distance to Casa de Campo, plan to negotiate cab fare before you get in; haggling is OK.

Renting a Car: Travelers must take a taxi or shuttle to Casa de Campo's main area, where there is a National Car Rental agency. However, we don't recommend this option unless you know where you're going. Traffic can be a headache, and all signs are in Spanish.

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

The official currency is the Dominican Republic Peso (check www.xe.com for current exchange rates), but it is rarely a problem to use American dollars. ATMs are available throughout La Romana and inside Casa de Campo; they will dispense money in pesos.

Language?

Dominicans speak Spanish as their primary language. Some, particularly those who work in tourism areas, speak English. That said, communication can be a problem, so either carry a pocket dictionary, or bone up on basic phrases like hola (hello), buenos dias (good day), por favor (please), gracias (thank you), cuanto cuesta? (how much does it cost?) and donde esta el bano? (where is the bathroom?).

Where You're Docked?

There is, technically, no "cruise terminal"; instead, ships dock at an informal facility -- one dock on either side of a small river that's between the sugar cane town of La Romana and the chi-chi resort village of Casa de Campo. There are no services (unless you count a Coke machine).

Where we ported all excursions take over 45-60 min. to get to. We opted to get off but walk through the shops they had next to the ship. That didn't take too long then we went back to Ship and ate & drank (safely)... Read More
