Default Montego Bay or Ocho Rios

Planning to book a cruise on the Star Princess: either stopping in Montego Bay or Ocho Rios. Any pros or cons for either port.

We are just a couple, no kids.

If you are doing Ocho Rios....Dunn's River Falls is a lot of fun.
In Jamaica, we make it a practice not to wonder around on our own. I would suggest that you only do organized group activities.

We've been to both repeatedly. I feel safer in Montego Bay port but that may be just me. Lots of fun excursions at both. Main advice is don't do excursions that go to the other port - too much time on bus and more dangerous. Say in Montego - don't go to falls in Ochos Rios... Debbie

8) Looking for a nice tour with shopping, family of 4 (two Teenagers) not really beach fans, I already looked into Sunset Beach, maybe an option.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

If you want to do Dunn's River Falls, you're best bet is to take a cruise that goes to Ocho Rios & do the Cool Runnings excursion. It is a lot of fun! If you go to Montego Bay, it is an unpleasant bus ride to Dunns River. Make sure you wear substantial footwear for climbing the falls. Have fun!
