I suppose you are referring to comments on the safety of Jamaica? I personally think it often is blown out of proportion. Yes, people can come up and ask you if you want to buy drugs. Does it happen all the time? No. Within two blocks of the ship is a shopping area with a Margaritaville and a beach. Also, if you take a ships organized tour to Dunns River Falls or other tour you should be perfectly fine. Jamaica happens to be one of the top honeymoon destinations, so it can't be all bad. Thousands of Americans visit Jamaica each week. There is a lot to do in Jamica. Plantations, blue mountains, horse back riding, the Dunn Falls, snorkeling,and kayaking. You might want to check out a day pass for one of the all inclusive resorts. As with any place you should stick together, don't wear flashy jewelry, leave valuables in the cabin safe. Only take enough cash to get you through the day. There's no reason you can't enjoy yourself.
