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.

Peace of Mind

By Alana Mills

With Hurricane Matthew having torn its way across the Caribbean and the Florida coast and and Typhoon Haima raging in the Far East, many Cruise ships had to seek shelter in port or re-route to avoid it as well as hotels having to batten down the hatches causing holiday misery for many.It begs the question of how safe is your holiday?Over my 30 years in travel I have seen many disasters that have affected the travel plans of hundreds of people, like 9-11, The Icelandic Volcano, many weather ev...

Bliss in Alaska and Joy for China

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

Being a great fan of NCL cruise lines I have welcomed the news that the 2 newest ships to join the fleet in 2017 and 2018 will be based in China and Alaska respectively. Norwegian Joy which will enter service in Summer 2017 will be based in Shanghai and Tianjin. I have recently returned from a cruise on Norwegian Epic around the Mediterranean and there were a lot of Chinese staff on board who were training and getting ready for the new ship.Norwegian Joy is being styled exclusively for the Ch...

By Ruth Gale

Ruth Gale's blog

WIFI seems to be one of the most important factors now days when people are considering booking a cruise. We used to offer free car parking or on board credit as extra incentives for booking but now we are finding that people would rather have free internet.Cruise lines are also starting to offer this as an alternative to their booking campaigns and whilst it will never take over from the free drinks packages I think it is becoming a close second.When I go on holiday I cant think of anything ...
