Warm Welcome for QM2


Cunard flagship Queen Mary 2 was greeted with excitement during its recent inaugural visit to Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic. Coming from Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, Queen Mary 2’s visit to Amber Cove marked the first call that the ocean liner has ever made in the Dominican Republic. The vessel’s arrival was celebrated during a traditional maritime ceremony aboard, during which port officials and dignitaries exchanged decorative plaques with Captain Kevin Oprey to commemorate the maiden visit. Local executives who welcomed the ship included Vice Minister of Tourism, Julio Almonte; Director of National Police, Coronel Jose Isaia Santana Morillo; Commander of the Air Force, General Richard Vazquez.
