Kingston has been notorious for violence and riots for years..just a few years ago, there was rioting because of taxes I believe. My son's friend, has friends in this city, one was killed...He has said he will not go back for a while.

I have given this port 3 tries,and if it's on my itinerary, I will stay on board. To have a strip mall, with a jewlery store and a 7~11 type store on the tour I paid good money for...not again....as we walked into the dirtiest Margarittavile, I have seen and a drug deal took place..no way.

I bet when Cuba does finally opens up..Jamaica, with all its's beauty, but, with many issues, will be left in the ships wake.
