Get ready for an incredible day in Ocho Rios, Jamaica! A town located on the north coast of Jamaica, Ocho Rios is adorned with beautiful golden beaches juxtaposed against its jungle-covered mountains. This backdrop allows for a myriad of unique excursions for guests to enjoy including river rafting, river tubing, savoring a moment of relaxation on beach, or simply a day of Jamaican rum and local cuisine! However, this port-of-call is magnificent for more than just sightseeing and adventure! In fact, Island Plaza and Soni’s Plaza on Main Street are both a shopper’s dream featuring duty-free shops filled with designer fashion, gorgeous jewelry collections, and more!

Ocho Rios is most famous for none other than, Dunn’s River Falls – Jamaica’s national treasure! Guests can simply spend the day scaling this spectacular waterfall – climbing and exploring the limestone rocks while relishing in the refreshing pools along the way.  Or the more adventurous spirit may want to take this exploration to the next level by adding on swimming with dolphins or even exploring the Green Grotto Caves. 

The truth is that whether you choose a relaxing day on the beach, a shopping extravaganza, or an adventure you have never experienced before…Jamaica is ready and answering your call!

Monsters…get ready for Nassau! We know that you may be thinking, “Nassau…been there, don that already.” Not this time cruisers! After almost 4 years of an extensive makeover, Nassau has been completely transformed. This $300 million renovation will be opening at the end of May 2023, which means it will be ready for us in 2024.


The upgrades include a complete revamp of the waterfront area including repairing and expanding Prince George Wharf, additional berths, and a brand-new terminal. Not to mention, there will be event and entertainment spaces, an Amphitheater for up to 3500 people, a living coral exhibit, as well as local food vendors and shops for guests to peruse.


Once you get outside of the terminal areaNassau is easy to get around, no matter where you go. You can rent a car if you like, but why bother? Most of Nassau’s best attractions are in walking distance, or a quick taxi ride, from The Independence of the Seas.


You can start your day in Nassau’s Straw Market. It’s in the middle of town, and very popular with visitors. Bahamian women started selling local crafts here when the native sponge business slumped. Today, this is a boisterous and varied market that always offers something new.
