Ocho Rios
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
I had been to Ocho Rios before and done the main tourist attractions. We opted to walk off and visit the shops near the pier. This area was not well developed, choices were limited, and hawkers and taxi drivers were relentless.

Cave Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
The tour of the cave was interesting, but we ran into a couple of busloads, so it was crowded and hot. There are multiple steps to enter and explore the cave. Not a big issue for us, but was troublesome for many of the guests.

The port area is nice and the architecture is beautiful.

We had been here last year, so we opted to explore the area around the port on foot. We stopped in a couple local casinos, did a bit of shopping and stopped for drinks overlooking the water.

Port Rating: 0.0 out of 5+
One of our favorites. We like the atmosphere. It is relaxed and people are not aggressive. We explored the main street and the waterfront on foot, visited a few shops and enjoyed the spectacular beach views and a cold beer before returning to the ship.

St. Thomas
Port Rating: Not Rated
We were here recently and toured the island then. This time we got off to visit the shops at Havensight Mall at the pier.

There are great views and lovely beaches on the island.
