On our last cruise Feb 26 - Mar 3 one of the stops was Ocho Rios and we went on a ship excursion. We went to an 1800's plantation and then to Discovery Bay for lunch and swimming. We were able to do a bit of souviner shopping and because it is in a restricted area we had no trouble with any pushy Jamacians. Both times we have been to Jamica we felt it was best to use a ship excursion and felt very safe both times. Unfortunately it is one place that we would never set out on our own even with the possiblity of arranging an excursion prior to arrival.
No matter where you go it is good to hear both good and bad so that anyone thinking of going anywhere can be as informed as possible.
