Ferries to Santo Domingo

Bring your passport and see more than one island in the Caribbean via ferry

In the fall of 2013, American Cruise Ferries began offering trips between two of the Caribbean's Latin-American countries: the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. The service is an all-inclusive experience aimed at giving passengers a good time while providing transportation from one destination to the next.

Riding the Ferries

Caribbean Fantasy is the name of the boat, which travels from the Don Diego Port to San Juan, Puerto Rico on Sundays and Thursdays. The return trip is on Mondays and Fridays. Amenities include WiFi at several points, an a la carte restaurant and buffet restaurant, piano bar, casino, dance club, arcade, and on-board duty free shopping. Additionally, there is plenty of live entertainment including concerts and karaoke.

Round trip fares start at just $189(USD), with additions such as your hotel stay when you arrive at port and ground transportation for around $359(USD). Regardless of which package you choose, each guest is permitted up to three pieces of luggage.
