  • Cruise Port - Port of Montego Bay
    Port of Call, Home Porting...

  • Why waste time sailing to the Caribbean when you can start your vacation in the very heart of one of the world's most exciting and sophisticated cruise destinations?

    The key to Jamaica's success in the homeporting sector is the central Caribbean position, whiles its world-class culture terminal at the Port of Montego Bay is only a few minutes’ drive from the ultra-modern Sangsters International Airport.

    As might be expected in one of the Caribbean's leading cruise destinations, Jamaica offers a complete range of support services in its principal cruise ports.

    Various shipping agents offer husbandry services for cruise vessels and several cruise lines have their own representatives among local agents.

    Montego Bay is an ideal destination for cruise passengers.

    A host of activities and attractions provide the perfect day off the boat. Few experiences will compare with a day of rafting down the Martha Brae or a walk along the "Hip Strip", where Jamaica comes alive day and night with food, music, souvenir shops, water sports and a casino like gaming lounge. History and culture enthusiasts will enjoy a tour of one of the area's great houses, such as the 18th-century Rose Hall, where you will hear the tale of Annie Palmer’s ghost. Or there is the Bird Feeding Station, a working plantation to explore. So, while few still come for a Doctor's Cave treatment, everyone finds Montego Bay just what the doctor ordered.
