We're sailing on the Paradise (for the 2nd time) next August. Previously, we had gone on the Western Carib. route, but are taking the Eastern trip this time. I've read quite a bit of negative stuff about the Dominican Republic. I've been to Nassau and am looking forward to seeing St. Thomas for the first time. However, is it worth it considering the stop in the Dominican Republic? Is it that terrible? I'm starting to have second thoughts about this particular cruise. I consider part of the value of cruising the opportunity experienced in visiting new places. If this place isn't worth visiting, I may try something else next August. Please...any advice would be most appreciated!
