Jamaica is one of the most popular islands in the Caribbean for both cruise ships and holiday-makers. Steeped in history and tightly woven into the fabric of reggae music, Jamaica is a great port of call on a Caribbean cruise.
Most cruise ships that visit Jamaica commonly stop at Montego Bay. This sprawling town manages to be both cosmopolitan and unmistakably Caribbean at the same time. Here you will find shopping centres, plantation houses and enough night-time entertainment to keep even the most hardly party-lover entertained.
For a different take on the Jamaica experience then Ocho Rios is highly recommended. Whilst the actual port itself is fairly basis, it does offer easy access to nearby craft markets, beaches and the superb Shaw Park Botanical Gardens, where you can immerse yourself in glorious natural surroundings and take in some of the best scenery you’re ever likely to encounter.
Those looking to pass the time on their visit to Jamaica will find no shortage of things to do. We recommend taking the time to explore one of the Great Houses, each of which offer a fascinating insight into this exotic island’s colourful past.
If adventure and thrill-seeking is more your thing, then take a taxi from either Montego Bay or Ocho Rios to one of Jamaica’s Chukka centres where you can enjoy jungle canopy climbs and quad-biking.
There are many cruise lines that visit Jamaica. Families can choose from famous names including Royal Caribbean International, NCL and Celebrity whereas those seeking the upmost luxury on their Jamaica cruise can enjoy voyages with the likes of Cunard.
