We did not plan anything for this stop. My husband and I honeymooned in Ocho Rios and knew about the 2 hour bus rides. I did not want to try that with kids. We got out and shopped in the port area. The kids got a Jamaica soccer ball (futbol); we did not have one before. We did not mean to but did haggle. Our youngest was trying to want a fidget spinner instead. We were trying to get them to decide. The ball also had marks on it; I don’t like to buy new stuff that is dirty. This was taken as haggling, and she knocked the price down. In the terminal, they were helpful and told us how to walk to the Hard Rock for wi-fi. We had gotten an email from our tour guide in Grand Cayman about an earlier tour time before we left Galveston, so needed to check email again. When I saw the line of people at the gate ready to hassle us and it was starting to sprinkle, I ask that we head back. (We ended up buying expensive one day internet access from the ship.) Jamaica was pretty when we saw it before; if you want to do something, book it ahead of time. It ended up flooding that day, and the ship did not get to leave until right before 10pm, instead of 6pm, waiting for ship tours to make it back. They had to avoid flooded roads. Read Less

Only took a private tour with a taxi driving around town and the neighborhoods. Very busy city, nothing exciting or of historical significance.

In Montego Bay we did the hop on and off bus that took us to different locations throughout the city. We had rain that day so we only did some shopping.

Walked half a block and had taxi drivers racing to get us. Paid $5 each (4 people)/$7 pp for only 2. Went to Doctor’s Cave beach. It was small, but pretty with decent snorkeling halfway to ropes on the left/middle. $6 entrance fee; $7 umbrella; $7 chair. Went to eat lunch and have a beer there. Reasonable prices. Started to have a bad thunderstorm so we left; took delicious wings with us. Return taxis easy to get. Read Less

There is no real city to visit or beaches and activities nearby the port, an excursion is practically a must. Many require a long drive to get to as most activities are oriented to stops in Ocho Rios. The ships last minute diversion to this port left me with inadequate time to research and find an acceptable activity and nothing in the MSC excursions was appealing. We got off the ship and went into the eight or so small trinket huts inside the gates. After looking around at conditions outside the port gates we just got back on the ship. Read Less

Took the Hop on Hop off bus from the port to Margaritaville to eat & shop. The bus was a little pricey - Margaritaville was awesome as always but not really impressed with Montego Bay - and we were approached a few times to buy

If you want to feel like you are on a Mission Trip or want to get some weed, this is the place for you. Very unfortunate since the beach was wonderful. BEWARE of sea urchins. Definitely recommend water shoes.

We just took a bus to Doctor's Cave Beach. The beach/water was beautiful. We went back to the ship to eat when we got hungry. Montego Bay is not our favorite port!

Bought the Hop On/Hop Off Bus tickets after being recommended by Carnival staff. We just felt as if we were being taken advantage of ($$$ wise) by every stop. FYI, kids are 1/2 price - Carnival had told us they were the same price.
