Norwegian Cruises return to Jamacia

Six years ago Norwegian Cruise Line sailed away from Jamaica, and now, they're back!   Two of Norwegian's ships, Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Sun, have plans in 2011 and 2012 to visit Ocho Rios.   If all goes well, they might just make Jamaica a permanent port once again.

I hope the port visits go well, it'd be nice to more cruise guests getting the opportunity to check out my favorite island, Jamaica.  Cruise visits to Ocho Rios have dipped about 25% over the last 5-6 years so Norwegian revisiting is a great sign.  It may be time for Ocho Rios to update their port and pier to lure even more visitors over.  Some reports have the port at Ocho Rios being "shabby."  And now there's Port Falmouth around the corner to compete for cruise ship traffic.

Let's see how this all pans out!
