Been to Montego Bay twice on the Liberty and Freedom. First time tried the ships and shuttle to Margaretaville in Montego Bay, talk about hassle everywhere except Margaretaville whihc is okay. Second time just got off and wandered the market stalls and shops within the cruise terminal and got back on, no hassle here and some bargain local carvings and oil paintings that are lovely. There's a beautiful view of jamaica from the ship (especially one the size you are going on good choice) just have an easy day and enjot the other 3 stops there are excellent (especially if you do dolphins in Cozumel and again just stick to the cruise terminal for shops.

You are right to be aware of certain dangers in Jamaica as a whole. My advice would be to go with a two, three or four more people, get a taxi, and this is important, from inside the port facility because they are all regulated and licensed there. Then ask to go to one of the beautiful gardens and walk around it. Jamaica is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean and the lush plants and colourful flowers are spectacularly great. Birds, including so many humming birds, butterflies and even gorgeous great spiders are all around so don't miss out just be aware of the situation and enjoy a wonderful island.... Neil.

Thank you ALL for your replies and helpful advice. We have taken notice of all your suggestions and will give it some more thought and perhaps decide when we are on the ship. We are not really normally nervous travellers and have been to many places, I think it may be a case of getting older !!! Again thank you all for taking the trouble to reply.

We have been to Jamaica quite a few times, staying in all inclusives resorts and on cruises. We are due to go Montego Bay next new year on a cruise on the Sea Princess. Last year the cruise started from Montego Bay and on the trip from the airport we made our minds up if we ever come again we will not get off the ship.The trouble is they are in your face all the time and some can be quite menacing. It is a shame as it is a a very pretty island it is just some of the people. Have a nice relaxing day on board.

When we went on the Sea Princess we did a super excursion from the ship to Margaritaville at Negril and spent the day on the beach. Today on GM t.v. it recommended anyone going to Jamaica to go and see the house that Noel Coward lived in. Hi J & G we are going on the Sea Princess in March 2010 and visiting Montego Bay - think we will go to Negril again!!
