The Dunn's River Falls is an amazing destination. However it is very crowded and disorganized. The bus ride is over 1 hour to get there. Our tour guide was informative and the time went by fast. However the tour guides on the Dunn's River were pushy. This is a very difficult climb and not for people who are not athletic. The water falls are very rapid, the rocks often are hard to see when you are climbing and you will get soaked from head to foot. So please no small children, cause if they fall they are headed for the bottom of the falls. Make sure you purchase good water shoes before you go on this one and a pouch or fanny pack that is waterproof. After I say this, I have to admit it was a wonderful place when it is hot and sunny. truly beautiful and we had a lot of fun - my College aged kids loved it. Just be for warned and prepared.

Best. Excursion. EVER! To fully enjoy this, you will want to be rather able-bodied to enjoy the trek up the falls. You go, hand-in-hand with others on your excursion THROUGH the water and falls to climb from the beach to the top! You do not go up stairs beside the falls, like we first thought. This is an option for those with infirmities, but not nearly as fun. You and everything you own will be SOAKED, so bring a dry bag to keep things dry, if needed! We enjoyed Dunn's River Falls and didn't get to enjoy everything available at this wonderful attraction. We really wish we had a full day to enjoy it!!! If you have the option, do just the falls for a full day, you will not be bored. Read Less

Highly recommend this as it is beautiful, fun, strenuous just a blast. Our Jamacian guide, Floyd made it so much fun. We did the 39.00 excursion which got us there and back, a trip to Reggae Hills, shopping at a local shop which was expensive. They could do without the shopping spot and spend more time at Reggae Hills. Our tour guide on our van was Norda who was funny, joyful and very informative. She took care of everything because we would have had to pay the 23.00 for the admission to the Falls she got our tickets and we settled up at the end. No long lines like I had read previously. Great experience. Read Less

This is a must-do in Jamaica if you've never done it before. Beautiful, picturesque, exhausting, exhilarating. Beware the craft market you have to walk through to get back to your bus, the vendors are beyond pushy.

Honestly, it was all only okay. We made a stop on the drive for snacks and beer which was fine, but gas station was questionable. Ive done the falls before and theyve improved the park around it so that was nice. Falls were super crowded and they are trying to sell you everything. Next we went through absolute slums to a tubing river. It was gross. The life jackets were moldy and the tubes were questionable. NEVER AGAIN. Next they took us to lunch at Shaw Park hotel. Also gross. I barely ate because it was just dirty. Skip all of this. We felt gross and wished we would have just done the falls Read Less

Jamaica is now off my list and I will never return. Dunn’s River Falls was very nice and I’m glad we got to go. Other than the falls themselves, the rest of the “Dunn’s River Falls & Bamboo Beach” excursion was a mess. There were so many things that went wrong that our “tour guide” was begging the entire bus on the way back to the ship not to use her name on TripAdvisor. So many of us complained to the Shore Excursion desk that they refunded half of our money. Read Less

Our tour guide Shanise was fantastic and she deserves all of the recognition for being a wonderful guide (or nanny as she called herself). The description of the tour as provided by Royal Caribbean was not accurate. Our description said we were going to the dolphin cove (1.5 hrs) where we could choose to swim with dolphins and then we would have lunch and head to dunns river falls (1.5 hrs) to climb them. We chose this tour specifically because one person wanted to swim with dolphins while the others did not and this offered the option to upgrade once you got to the cove. However, toward the end of our 40 minute bus ride to our first destination we were informed that we were doing the waterfall first. This did not seem like a big deal as everyone was informed that this would not change the tour at all we were just doing things backward. However, the falls took 2 hours. We were late getting to the dolphin cove and swimming with dolphins was unavailable. If the tour was done in the way it was described at the time of booking and even after booking this would not have occurred. The only way swimming with the dolphins would have been available was if you wanted to pay for the full 30 minutes, but you would have only gotten 5-10 minutes. They would not pro-rate the price due to their own mistake of changing the tour and being late. The dolphin cove place is not worth it if you are not swimming with the dolphins. There is a small, unimpressive beach with lounge chairs that are mostly broken. There are sharks (maybe lemon sharks? I wasn't sure) kept in a small area. You could swim with sting rays for free if you wanted. Lunch was OK, rice and beans and some meats. Read Less

Dunn River Falls, not so much. Where Blue Hole was natural and minimally developed, Dunn River Falls was completely developed, with paved parking lots and ticket Kiosks straight out of Disneyland or Universal Studios. Blue Hole we had a guide for our family, Dunn River we were in a group of 40+ . Blue Hole we had time to take in the natural splendor and enjoy the experience , whereas Dunn River we were hustled from one spot or another then made to wait while the camera man took pictures of everyone to try and sell them the images afterwards. Night and Day experience and if we could do it over again we would have skipped the falls and spent all our time at Blue Hole Read Less

Tour operation was great. Bus was in good shape and clean, tour operator was engaging. Dunn's River was neat to see, we climbed it without using a guide easily enough. The craft vendors outside the exit though are really too aggressive. You can't actually take the time to look at anything as they are trying so hard to force a sale. It strips the enjoyment out of actually looking at the booths. We also went to Ocho Rios. The falls are lovely, though the experience feels a little rushed as the guides mostly keep the tour groups moving through. Read Less
