Do a sponsored shore excursion with your ship only.... Jamaica is a little different & more dangerous. We were offered drugs etc. We did the ATV tour but too rough for kids. Just study the tours your ships offer, Carnival rates their tours with stars. Dunns river falls is a tourist trap & falls are slippery u need aqua socks.
The Black safari is interesting, I do agree the Dunns river would be too much for them but RCI does have one that you visit a school, martha brea river ect. I'm thinking about this one too. Thanks for the feedback.
When we stopped in Falmouth, Jamaica this past summer, we went to an All Inclusive. If you are looking for a beautiful property and beach for the day with good food, check out the Iberostar's Rose Hall, Montego Bay. There are 3, 1 specifically for couples, 1 called Beach and the one we had day passes to called Suites (suites has a lazy river and a slightly noticeable more upscale clientele) We walked over to Beach and it was definitely comparable (and a little cheaper for the day pass). We swam in their pool and up to their bar, you can use both resorts while there for the day. The food was good food, we had lunch at suites. When we arrived (around 11ish & note Id try to get there earlier to enjoy more)they were still serving breakfast & offered that we could enjoy that as well. We opted to wait for lunch. The pool and beach were clean and there were families with children there. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Also, transportation there- easy-as-pie, and quick! From the time we left the port at Falmouth to standing in the Lobby of Iberostar suites, just under 15 minutes. Transportation prices are posted and easy to find, walk through the market to the end of the port area and there are taxi-vans that will take you there. Just tell them exactly where you want to go. Enjoy!
To Do List...Must book a trip back to Jamaica! (to this all inclusive)
