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.

A Right Royal Caribbean Dress ...

By Hannah Wilson

Over the last few years there has been a general drift towards more casual attire during the evening on certain cruise lines. P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...
