Update: In August 2007 I sailed Grandeur of the Seas to Bermuda. While on board, I looked up the port guide, Marty, and asked him to show me details for this new port stop of Samana. He was more than happy to tell me all he knew. It's such a new port, many of the details are still not well known. He showed me the tender piers and the approximate location for the ship anchorage.

Samana is a small peninsula and town on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. It is one of the newest cruise ports in the Caribbean, and as such, has several remote and undeveloped areas of jungle, beaches and inland waterfalls.

Cayo Levantado is one of the most popular excursions, being a short tender ride away from the cruise ship anchorage. Also the town of Samana itself, which has a new tender pier, that is not visible on the current satellite data.

Other excursions take you to the fishing village of Las Terrenas, on the north shore of the peninsula, and Las Galeras, a beach area, also on the north side.

There are several other various types of excursions available, and this port appears to have much potential for the future. You can read more about the port on their web page here.
