Onboard Activities

Pools were terrible due to no room and not enough sunbathing chairs. Water slides were great for the kiddos!

The live bands and comedy acts were great! The singing shows not so good. The actual show was good but some of the men vocalists weren't good.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Every staff member except the Fun Shop's cashier was very friendly and helpful. I guess she wasn't having any fun the two encounters that I had with her....

second time we have used this port. It was faster getting on the ship this time than it was the first time. Great Port.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Terrible! Do not get off the ship at this port! The taxi people(sherry berry) was pushy and I felt threatened and unsafe. They kept pushing everyone on the shuttle to take their all day island tour. The taxi people at the port said they was taking everyone downtown to go shopping and that is where the beach was also located. Once we got on the shuttle bus they started their sales pitch of riding with them on a island tour all day. Then told us if we got off downtown then they couldn't guarantee us on when we would come back to the ship or our safety. They took us to a small hole in the wall store that had double the price on every souvenir that they sold at the port and gave us a sticker to wear to get 50% off. Wow! what a bargain, I got to pay 14.00 per person to pay the same amount for something I could of bought at the ship port. Bad time at this port. Hope to never go back to Jamaica and will warn everyone I see how threatened and unsafe I felt on my shuttle bus ride there. Very dirty looking place.

Fastest trip so far for getting off the ship. Carnival has done their homework on this.
