Jamaica may be part of the British Commonwealth of Nations (English is the official language) but you won’t find any evidence of British weather on this sunny island located in the Caribbean Sea, 145 kilometres south of Cuba.
Although the capital, Kingston, is the urban hub of the island, MSC cruise ships call at the more relaxed Montego Bay and Ocho Rios to the north of the country, Montego Bay is one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations, and the neighbouring port of Ocho Rios is the island’s second-favorite vacation spot.
Join our excursion packages and escape the crowds to discover the gems that this island has to offer. Tour round the grand colonial plantation houses, climb the Dunn’s River Waterfall or add adventure to your holiday with rafting in the rainforest. Shop for souvenirs in Ochee’s famous Craft Market or get away from it all in the island’s own ‘Garden of Eden’.
As always, you can look forward to the best deals on all kinds of outings as well as a selection of day trips to suit all guests tastes. Ensure you make time for lunch during your day away from the cruise ship and sample the typical dishes such as ‘jerk’, fried plantain, the hearty rice and peas or salt cod, the national dish. Hopefully you’ll catch the sounds of reggae as you dine, which will lend a genuine feel-good atmosphere to your holiday time here!
