There were several excursions that looked appealing to us (Dunn’s Falls, Ocho Rios, etc.) but we didn’t want be on a bus/taxi for more than 30 minutes each way and after a nice time at the beach in Grand Cayman, we opted for another beach day in Jamaica. We asked around in the port and decided to go to Montego Bay, since that would not only allow us some time at the beach but also proximity to the hip strip and some shopping. We didn’t leave the ship until later, probably 11:00am, so we had to wait almost 30 minutes until our van “filled up” but our driver was entertaining and pointed out some interesting things along the way to Montego Bay. We arrived at Aquasol Beach Park and were amazed by the beauty of the beach. If we thougth that Seven Mile beach was nice, Montego Bay’s beach was even nicer. It probably helped that it was less crowded and we were directed to a wooden table with a couple of benches in the shade and right in front of the beach. The facilities themselves were a little old and run down but we didn’t care since the beach (fine, white sand and warm, calm water) was exceptional and we only used the showers and restrooms before leaving. There was a DJ playing music and calling out the various groups arriving at the beach throughout the day, which made it entertaining. Even though they had some inflatable water slides and such, we weren’t sure they were operating them and, besides, we really enjoyed just hanging out on the beach. When it started to get cloudy around 2:30pm, we told our driver that we wanted him to take us to the hip strip a little bit earlier than when we had originally asked him and he didn’t have a problem doing that. I guess it worked out well that we were with a fairly small group (only 11 people total), since we all agreed on this earlier departure from the beach. The hip strip was OK. There weren’t a lot of people there, so a lot of the vendors were “going after us” to visit their shops. We only had time to visit a couple and buy a couple of Red Stripe beers (the first one for $3 and the second for only $1 at another store). Once again, we had a pretty nice and inexpensive day: the round trip taxi fare and entrance to Aquasol was $25.00 per person but we didn’t have to pay for the girls. Read Less

-We shopped in RCCL's port shops and had a bad experience with one merchant. I picked up a magnet to look at it and it slipped out of my hands and chipped. The merchant made me pay or he would call the police.-The tour bus driver scared the living crap out of me with his reckless driving. In addition heaven forbid the bus break down on the way from Falmouth to Montego Bay. Such a very rough area to go through. Scary. - We were offered drugs from this one dude while on foot to go eat lunch at this Jerk chicken restaurant.-Very nice port bar we went to taste Jamaican Coffee and banana bread. Read Less

The supervisor at the port offered a taxi to take us to Montego Bay for $20 round trip per person plus $5 admission for adults and $3 for our son. This turned into $4 when we actually arrived. We paid our admission and refused at least 3 offers to get us a beach chair while we were looking for a spot. We already knew that beach chair would cost $5 each. I was also harassed about a massage within seconds of entering the beach while still carrying all my beach gear. Clearly not the time to inquire about a massage. We found a spot under a tree on the far left side of the beach. I spent the 2 or so hours we had chatting with the Carnival Magic passengers while my husband and son enjoyed the beach. I wanted to get something to eat but felt like we had been shaken down enough. Doctor's Cove Beach is pretty enough but the beach is really small. On the way back to Falmouth, I could not help but notice how undeveloped this part of Jamaica is. Even Montego Bay was not that impressive. Read Less
