Answer: Everyday, almost - but it depends on the port of destination.
Below is a listing of the cruise ship ports in Jamaica, when or how often they call in, and a bit about the general area or attraction.
Jamaica boasts three cruise ship ports. The busiest of which is located in Ocho Rios a town in the parish of St. Ann which is branded the “capital of adventure”.
Cruise ships dock every day of the week here with the exception of Saturdays. Still, on rare occasions, the terminal may be used on given Saturdays.
There is plenty to do here in the garden parish. Another name given to the town for its numerous splendor. You can visit the duty free shops, craft markets, fabulous restaurants and the nearby attractions which includes the mystic mountain adventure and the world famous dunns river falls.
Founded in 1769, Falmouth remains one of the Caribbean’s most maintained historic location. The town was the number one sugar production site in the world and was known to be great and very wealthy.
Following the remodeling of the Port in the year 2011, approximately 1 million tourists enter this specific shoreline each year, giving the country a favourable increase in tourists arrivals and by extension, economic growth.
Various cruise lines dock the beautiful shores of Falmouth on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays - mainly.
Be sure to visit the Albert George Shopping and Historical Centre, take the Martha Brae Rafting Tour, and visit both the St Peter’s Anglican church and the iconic Greenwood Great House.
You may also visit to the newly refurbished Burwood beach and immerse yourself in its cool turquoise shallow waters.
Welcome to Montego Bay! The country’s tourism capital! Montego Bay is Jamaica’s second city with the most resort accommodation and transport services in the island!
Cruiselines such as Carnival, NCL MSC and Pullmantur make the Montego bay cruise terminal the port of destination.
Ships dock here every day of the week, except for Fridays. On rare occasions, the port may welcome up to four cruise ships daily!
The terminal house an information booth as well as a telecommunication centre that offers basic fax, internet and phone services to our guests.
There are also numerous gift shops available that provides additional services and products.
And what offshore attractions would I recommend in Montego Bay? There are many, but if you press me I'd quickly say, The Cinnamon Hill Golf Club located in Rose Hall, Margaritaville on Gloucester Ave and the Rastafarian Indigenous village which is located in the vicinity of Porto Bello area.
