Default New port, Falmouth Jamiaca, You going?

Are you stopping in Jamaica's new port? Seems like they are not quite prepared yet...I am sure they will soon get their act together..If you are going next week, come back and share your thoughts.

Default Falmouth

We will be visiting the new port of Falmouth in October. I'm not quite sure what we will find there. Shopping, excursions, cultural places, etc. I haven't heard that much about it.

I'd also be interested in hearing reviews about this new stop.

Link at the bottom of the OP post shows the following:

Go-Jamaica :: Cruise ship for Falmouth Pier moves to February 17 :: News

"....Bartlett gave the assurance following a meeting with tourism stakeholders today after two days of strike action by 450 workers at the construction site.
The industrial action has resulted in the delay of the cruise ship, Navigator of the Sea, from calling to port on Friday. The tourism minister says following today’s discussions it was agreed that the ship will now arrive on February 17."


With the crime we saw last year lets hope they have a safer, more profitable year.

Default Sounds like Falmouth is not very exciting

Has anyone gone to Falmouth and had a good time?

I was on the first docking of the Voyager there last week. Construction is definitely not near done, but it was a really neat experience. Was a big event for the locals, and I am glad I was part of it. That was the general feeling on the ship. I wrote a longer post in the RCI section under Snoozeman's Falmouth post, so I won't repeat it all here. Great place to pull in, but plan on cabbing it to a beach/restaurant/excursion/shopping tour until more development is finished at the pier. Not yet walker friendly.

Be glad to answer any questions about it...

Doug

Its my understanding that it was built with RC money and is reserved for RC and Celebrity use. Others lines will continue to moor / tender at other ports. Thats what they said when I was there last week, but now I wonder if that is 100% accurate.

I would think RCI could make big money allotting the valuable real estate to other lines....maybe after the new glow wears off, perhaps?

We leave tomorrow on the Ryndam and received notice today that we would not be stopping at Falmouth but at Ocho Rios instead. Neither is a bargain in my estimation. Stay tuned.....
