One of the most "welcoming" ports I've encountered. There is a Jamaican band greeting guests exiting the ship and the view from the port is breathtaking. People are extremely friendly.😏😜

I heard a lot of negative things about Jamaica from anyone who had ever been before. "It's beautiful, BUT..." So I was very cautious and aware of our surroundings. We did the Martha Brae bamboo raft tour. It was absolutely beautiful. It took my breath away. We saw some pushy salespeople who waded out into the river to try to sell us trinkets, but it wasn't anything too intrusive. I never felt uncomfortable. Our raft captain Clive was very informative and showed us things in nature that I had never seen before. Afterwards they dropped us off for a very quick stop at a shopping area, and we bought a Red Stripe and a meat pie that was knock-your-socks-off good. Back at the port we did some shopping, which was very relaxed and felt safe. I hated to leave. I'd like to come back here and spend a week.

???Hard Rock??? Wife, child (18), friend (18), other friend (18), and I ditched the old folks and walked from port to wherever...we were NOT ready to leave Jamaica...hot, sweaty, dying of thirst, for forgetting to look the 'other way' for traffic, we found Hard Rock...way under dressed, nobody stopped us, straight to the bar...no questions asked for 18 y.o....lol...filled out post cards for unlucky people back home, then hit the beach for a look see...WOW!, love Margarittaville, but next time in Montego Bay, this is our destination...walking distance (no $$$ cabs), clean peaceful beach, clean shallow pool, way cool seating areas and open areas...regular eating areas, fancy dining table areas...this place has it all...cannot wait to go back...few years to go, but we will be there...
Out of the whole cruise my favorite port was Montego Bay awesome experience with the culture. The food is spectacular, the people are very friendly and the paradise beach was amazing
Jamaica was soooo much fun! Our Taxi driver was phenomenal! Not only did he charge us only $10 to drive into town, he came back and picked us up at the time we agreed on!!!! We shopped at local stores and finished at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. This Margaritaville was so much fun. It included an onsite water park that utilized the ocean. To get to the inflatables you had to slide down a yellow slide. We spent quite a bit here and utilized this as our excursion. The only thing it cost us was the price of food! (And margaritas of course!)
