Here we are for another cruise post. This is our first day in port. Our first time in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Kind of crazy all the cruises we’ve been on and this was our first time in Jamaica.
We ended up booking Off-Road Safari excursion through Carnival. The description says, “Begin in a 4×4 safari truck, negotiating mountainous roads for spectacular views of Montego Bay from sites as high as 1,500 ft. above sea level. Experience the diversity of charming rural communities and towns. Stop at a former historic hospital that was converted to a church in 1846. Enjoy the running commentary of your guide/driver and view the ruins of a sugar factory that operated in the 1700s. Travel to one of Jamaica’s many beautiful rivers and have the opportunity to splash in the refreshing waters of a small waterfall.”

When we got back to port, we wanted to take a taxi back into town with the time we had left. However, I was starving and was really feeling lightheaded and beat up after the bumpy ride through Montego Bay. We also wanted to get more info about taking a taxi out, so we got back on the ship, ate lunch, and got the information we needed.
We went to the taxi area and all the taxi drivers were really funny about not wanting to just take us since we were only 2 people. That made us worry that if we did wait for a smaller taxi that we would have that issue in town and might get stuck. So instead we just shopped in that area outside of the cruise port. I also got a local beer that was really good.
