Only tour we did with ship and was disappointed with the tour. There was too much waiting on arrival at the horse riding venue. Too many ships in port. Staff were excellent and kept us entertained with games/jokes etc but we had only 30 minutes total on horses. Allure passengers were last to get horses so spent lots of time just sitting around. When we did get to ride the horses and swim them it was lots of fun. We feel we missed out on other exciting options as a result of doing this tour. Allure kindly refunded our money on arrival back to ship since we were so disappointed.

Montego Bay: We were very unhappy with the first one. We went on the Chukka Horseback Ride and Swim. It was supposed to be from 9:30-12:30. We waited and waited in the hot building at the port. Then they took us outside and we waited some more until our bus finally came to pick us up. The horseback ride was very nice. There are some beautiful views and at the end you ride along the shore back to where you start. Then we did our ride into the water on different horses. Our ride in the water was significantly shorter than the group we watch ed before ours. We were pretty disappointed that they rushed that part. Then we sat and waited for around an hour until our bus showed up to pick us up. We didn't get back to the port until 3. We had planned on having about 4 hours after this excursion to go to a beach and were very disappointed that instead we spent 3 extra hours on this excursion waiting. Also, they have lockers to secure your things but they charge you $5.00 to use them. We enjoyed the horseback riding a lot but were very disappointed that we spent most of our day in Montego Bay waiting. We complained at the shore excursion desk. I didn't find them to be very helpful. They refunded 20% of our excursion cost. On a positive note, our bus driver, Garfield, was wonderful. He gave us some great info about the island and kept us laughing.

Very enjoyable. We rode on trails and on the beach. We stopped, the saddles were removed, and we rode in an ocean pool. Very cool, once in a lifetime experience. The only part I didn't like was wearing the riding helmet. They didn't look very clean but I got over it.

Excursion was great... Cruise terminal at Montego Bay is awful.
