I would also suggest asking in the Caribbean Port Chat section. Lots of good info there about the ports.

We were to Ocho Rios in Jan & although we don't usually like to venture out in Jamaica, we did walk to the Island shopping center as did a lot of people. Depending on where you dock it's still a short walk to the center & no one bothered us except to ask if we wanted a taxi. The shopping center is well guarded to keep out the locals from bothering you. We watched a cultural show at 10 AM which was quite interesting which lasted about 20 minutes. (no charge other than a tip if you wanted to give one) & we headed for Margaritaville which is also in the center for a quick drink. They have a swimming pool there which was mostly for the kids & the place is located right on the beach all in view of the cruises ships. There are loads of shops in the center so you really don't have to travel else ware although you could easily walk to the Tajah Mahal shopping center. It provided us with an inexpensive day in Jamaica since we've see most of it's highlights many times. If you haven't climbed Dunn's River Falls it's close by to get to by taxi or if you go by tour from the ship it's a short ride by catamaran which we did it on a Princess cruise last year. If you go on you own by taxi you will be hassled by the shop owners when you leave the falls so be prepared & travel in a large group.
