Default Rose Hall Plantion-shopping "To Cancel or not to Cancel

I read on another cruise blog about the bad treatment you get in Montego Bay, while shopping and then the "pad down" you get before you can board your ship. As a GF & I have booked an excursion with RCCL to tour Rose Hall and then shop a bit at the Shopping Centre, I was wondering if maybe we should reconsider? I feel saver being with the group and since this is the only tour offering Rose Hall Plantion, we booked. Also how much of a problem would it be to change excursion. There were several people complaining about Montego Bay and said the other ports in Jamaica were fine. Help Please!

We enjoyed the Rose Hall Plantation a few years ago. We booked with the ship and felt safe. If you decide to change tours, go to the excursion desk the day you embark. You have to do this 24 or 48 hoiurs before the excursion.

I would say to save your shopping for another port, and stay with Rose Hall, or select a water/beach excurison if you like the water..

We toook an island tour, and the shopping was a strip mall, with one jewelry shop, a 7/11 and a tee shirt place We never got off the bus, and many others chose to pass as well...
