Departs at 4:30 PM
Fort Lauderdale delivers the best of both worlds— beach basking and glitzy cosmopolitan appeal. From serene Hugh Taylor Birch State Park to the buzzing Boardwalk of Hollywood (that’s Florida, not California), there’s a stretch of sand for every style of beachgoer. And jumbo yachts roam more than 300 miles of waterways in this “Venice of America.” Hitch a ride on the free Water Taxi or cruise on the Jungle Queen Riverboat before or after your Fort Lauderdale cruise. Head to the historic Stranahan House for a glimpse into Fort Lauderdale’s history and be sure to hit its modern-day backyard: the people-watching mecca of Las Olas Boulevard.

Surf-and-turf joints line every inch of the A1A along the beach, while white tablecloths drape the majority of Las Olas pavement restaurants.

There’s nowhere quite like Labadee® – where you can chase an adrenaline rush on an alpine coaster one minute, and do some sun soaking the next.

Cruise to Labadee and trek to the mountaintop to catch serious air on the world's longest zip line over water – the Dragon's Breath Flight LineSM. Or climb the only icebergs in the Caribbean at Arawak Aqua Park. If you just want to kick back and relax, grab our signature drink – the Labadoozie – and your own beach bungalow overlooking Nellie’s Beach. Or take a boat ride off Haiti’s shore for Caribbean hues and ocean views.

From 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Nestled right between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth is the perfect backdrop for discovery in Jamaica during your cruise – and there’s lots to do there. For a relaxing ride along the shoreline, hop on a horse in Chukkah Beach. Cruise to Falmouth and head to the Water Square and jam with the locals to live reggae. Culture cravers can get their fix during high tea at the historical Good Hope Estate overlooking the Queen of Spain Valley. And a trip to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without chowing down on fiery jerk chicken and rum cake, two local favourites.

CLIMB A WATERFALL

Take an excursion to Ocho Rios to experience the famous Dunn's River Falls. Follow your guide as you ascend to the top of the iconic waterfall. Be sure to plunge in the many natural pools as you make your way to the top!
Insider tip
Falmouth is the gateway to Jamaica’s top attractions, but if you want to explore outside port, try a guided tour.

Local Cuisine

When it comes to jerk cooking, nowhere does it better than Jamaica. The same goes for their world-famous Jamaican patties – savoury pastries usually stuffed with beef and spices. Be sure to pair your lunch with Jamaica’s Red Stripe lager, brewed locally since 1939. If you’re craving caffeine, have a cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee – it’s rated amongst the best in the world.
