This should probably be in the Ports section, but none the less I'll give it a shot.

Where does the Imagination dock in Jamacia? Ocho Rios or Montego Bay? The falls are very close to Ocho Rios but require about an hour and a half on a bus from Montego Bay. Resulting in the excursions price from MB being about $100 a head more than from OR. If you book as soon as you get on the cruise ship (book from your cabin TV is fastest) you should not have a problem.

As far as private tours.. I assume there are, but if you are docking in Ocho Rios, its a short taxi ride (about $10???) and the entrance fee to the falls is like $15. I think they want $80 for a ship booked excursion. Just be sure you arrange a return taxi and plan on being back long before the ship is to sail in case you run into problems. If you get a taxi driver that wants to do the "round trip" price, DO NOT PAY until you come back to the ship or he will take you money and not return to bring you back.

Anyone have experience with a private tour company and the falls?
