The Everglades tour was not worth the money. You spent almost an hour each way on the bus and then only 30 minutes on the boat ride, and another 45 minutes and a 15 minute show and gift shop. Then back to the airport by 12:00 It was booked as a 4 hour tour, but was barely 3.
The merchants are very pushy in Jamaica. And you will be followed around by people trying to sell you drugs. Dunn River Falls used to be great, but with 6 ships in port, it was crazy busy. It took an hour to reach the top - where you could easily to it twice in the same amount of time a couple of years ago. The beach was nice.
It's a very nice island - tons of beaches, but not much else. We had to leave 6 hours early due to the winds. The MSC ships often can't make it in or out of the narrow channel if it is at all windy, so the port is often skipped or shortened. Hopefully they will fix this problem by tendering in or fixing the channel.

It should be mentioned on the ships that you can take a bus provided by MSC to the airport for $8 a person, we found it by mistake. There is no advertisement for it or signs. Cruisers should know before they get off the ship that this option is available.
