We have heard lots of negative things about Montego Bay and this is one of our destinations on our next cruise. Any suggestions? We are traveling with an 80+ year old.... Should we skip this port and stay on board?
Since I've been there many times, I would just stay on board, especially with an 80 year old in tow. Then again it's really up to you.

so much depends upon the mobility of the elder traveler. Jamaica is a beautiful, lush tropical island, and if they can handle a bus ride, look into what the cruise ship offers for island type tours. IF you just want to relax on a beach then look into an all-inclusive day pass at one of the resort hotels on the beach in MoBay
We had a private driver and went from M-Bay to Ocho Rios to see the falls and town and felt safe all the way, no incidents whatsoever. Of course the sun can get pretty hot so you may want some shade. Negril is on our plan for the next visit!
