We had the same change - from port antonio to montego bay (with fred olsen braemar) - and quite welcomed the change as always wanted to see montego bay - how wrong we were!! montego bay is very dirty place - and nothing to do there - beaches-entrance to the beach 5 us dollars, public beaches - very very dirty...we wish we had took excursions to explore inland to the waterfalls or shared the minibus taxi with other 4-6 people..

Hi ... I've just returned last week from the Caribbena on Boudicca. We were looking forward to Port Antonio with it's private beach in the port area. We have been there before. We were informed of the decision to go to Montego Bay 3 days before we were due to dock. The Captain said it was because of windy conditions that he changed the schedule. Sounds like its going to be windy for a long time?? We ended up on a 'Canopy Tour' ..... so yes changes are made quite late in the schedule.

The captain of the Boudicca said that the diversion was because of the very narrow channel entrance at Port Antonio coupled with strong wind predictions - in fact when we arrived at Jamaica, there was no wind and the sea was flat calm. Since this skipper has recently put a hole in the Boudicca's bow, we werckon he was just playing safe - probably he's on his final warning. Montego Bay is an awful venue - difficult to get off the docks, constant tormenting by locals, restricted sea access. I suggest you book an excursion or stay onboard.

Best Burger at Sea!

By Zara Kelly

Its been a few weeks since I have done a food blog, so I thought I would dedicate a blog to why there MUST be excellent burgers at sea!On a cruise you can never go hungry, food is plentiful but there is something satisfying about a good burger. I am no connoisseur, but my husband is. If ever I need to get into his good book, I know what to serve. I took him to an amazing restaurant for his 40th (see below!).I am a little bit of a food snob, but that all changed when I experienced Johnny Rocke...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...

The Nightmare Of Packing For A Holiday !

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Watching the Royal wedding this weekend, and looking at the lovely outfits, I started to think about what I am going to pack for my Azamara cruise next week. Choosing an outfit for any special occasion can be daunting, and time consuming, and a Royal Wedding must be stressful to say the least but packing, for a holiday is another thing altogether!The first cruise I ever went on was Fred Olsen Braemar sailing from Southampton. Packing for that was easy, just take everything you want as there i...
