Hi guys,

Dave, you might be able to help me with this please.

Just wondering if you have been on any western caribbean cruises? I've heard that Jamaica is quite dangerous - would it be a good holiday?

Thanks

I guess I've been on more western runs than any other cruise itinerary. I wouldn't say Jamaica is "dangerous", just annoying depending on the port you stop at, and your level of endurance for pestering. Ocho Rios is better than Montego Bay in my opinion.

Thanks Dave, over all would you recommend Western Caribbean on Liberty?

Absolutely! Beyond the ports, the Liberty Of The Seas is a wonderful ship. We cruised on the Liberty last summer and it ranks as one of our best cruises ever - certainly in the top 5. We did the eastern run - not my favorite itinerary but it fit our schedule.

October is good, unless a hurricane happens along the way. But fear not! Because when a hurricane happens, the ship goes in the opposite direction!

The majority of our cruises have been to the western caribbean. We love Jamaica, just have resigned ourselves to always doing some sort of tour to get a layer of protection from aggressive natives and potential crime. Also want to get back to the ship on time, this is not a place to get stranded. Grand Cayman is wonderful, ditto Labadee, and Cozumel is one of the safest ports in all of the Caribbean. As much as I love the other route, for use west is best. Good luck!

We sailed on Liberty last October on the western leg and had a wonderful cruise. We chose to stay onboard in Montego Bay but those that went ashore all had a great time.

Hey Tex,
I was on the Liberty in Oct too. We will also be on the Mariner on Oct 26th. We're doing a back to back.
