Jamaica Welcomes High Number of Cruise Ships

Contents Show

Jamaica welcomed six of the world’s largest and most well-known cruise ships simultaneously earlier this week.  Docked in the ports of Falmouth, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Kingston, this was the second time in the past four years that this number of ships were docked there at the same time.  Six vessels were in port, and Jamaica was host to over 15,000 cruise guests that day.

Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas was docked in Falmouth, Kingston welcomed Pullmantur’s MS Monarch, and Ocho Rios hosted Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Epic.

Additionally, Princess Cruises’ Coral Princess called in Ocho Rios, and Montego Bay hosted Thomson Cruises’ Thomson Dream and AIDA Cruises’ AIDAmar.

The buzz of activities and cruise guests comes fresh off the heels of Jamaica’s honor as “World’s Leading Cruise Destination” title by the World Travel Awards on December 4.  Topping all Caribbean destinations, Jamaica won a total of nine awards, individually and through their resorts and travel partners.
