All inclusive beach break was fun. Jamiacan Jerk was very tasty. Kids were present but with music and weed I'd recommend taking kids elsewhere. Drinks were strong. Water was clear and bus ride was a short 15 min.

We took a taxi to doctor's cave beach and it was lovely - but got very busy later on. the "taxi" tried to up-sell everyone on the bus an entire day of "beach, shopping, etc." for $30 each and then tried to let us stop and see a lookout of the beach (for 3 minutes) from a gift shop. lol this is a scam used everywhere. luckily everyone on the transport said no. take us to the beach. ($7 per person each way). Read Less

For $119 each, it was NOT worth it!!! One of those all you can eat all you can drink all you can do type excursions. This is the second one we've ever done like this. Stay away. The seaweed/kelp undergrowth kept me out of the water. Although the resort was beautiful, we were competing with another cruiseline's passengers and the resorts occupants for chairs. We must have walked 15 minutes looking for chairs to sit in sun. Very crowded! Food was hotdogs, hamburgers, jerk chicken, fries...not a buffet setting. Drinks seriously watered down (not surprising). Too windy to wind surf and paddleboard, and too kelpy to snorkel. Waste of time and money. Read Less

Jamaica is dirty and poverty stricken. Business owners and cabbies so needy. Safety is in my opinion ok. I did not have an issue with it. Beach was great. Everything costs so bring $$$

This was one of the pricier all inclusives that I recall, but it was very nice. The bus ride to the resort was 5-10 minutes. The resort provided us with towels, so we didn't even use our CCL towels. I know there were multiple pools, but I opted for their large hot tub instead. They had an outdoor restaurant, multiple bars, including a swim-up pool bar, beach area, burger stand, jerk chicken stand. The staff was friendly. There was a 3-person band that we enjoyed listening to & chatting with. I think one of our group got their business card. We wanted to stay longer, so we let the bus go on without us and got a taxi back to the ship. I forget what we each paid (6 of us), but it was minimal & well worth being able to spend an extra hour and a half at the resort.

For those that are interested we have real pictures of what they advertise as the "pristine white sandy beaches" of Chukka Beach! Uh-uh, this was a very sad outing! Chukka is a narrow strip of tan colored sandy beach that barely accommodates a busload of tourists. We had the additional misfortune to be there when enormous drifts of seaweed washed ashore in such quantities that the poor Jamaican worker with his rake and wheelbarrow was completely overwhelmed. This excursion was certainly not worth the 50 minute bus ride from Montego Bay. The small overpriced shore/bar served jerk chicken for lunch, which the bus driver warned was "hot going in, even hotter coming out!". All tourists were stuck on this 100 yard thin stretch of beach with desperate locals hawking their wares at each end of the beach. There was a guard to keep the locals from entering our area and harassing us, but now and then he'd leave and the bravest locals would descend upon us with vigor. As soon as he'd return they'd scatter. We felt trapped and couldn't wait to return to the ship. Not recommended!

We took a cab and went to Doctors Cove beach. Great day in the sun. Cost is 6 dollars to get in per person, 6 dollars for a chair, 6 dollars for an umbrella. Great beach bar service! Very few vendors to bother you.

In Montego Bay we went to Sunset Beach which is an all inclusive beach, including a grill by the pool which is open all day and a wonderful buffet which was open from 12-2:30. This beach is paradise. My husband and I took our 2 teenagers and absolutely loved this beach. It has several slides and a lazy river. with a very nice pool area. The beach water even at this time was extremely nice. The hotel was very clean. We took a taxi which was 3 dollars per person and it was only 10minutes from the ship. Read Less
