Group Port Excursions - Jamaica, Grand Cayman & Cozumel  

So, now we've left Galveston and reached our ports - Montego Bay in Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel.

 

So many options, and so much to do! Learn more about each of these wonderful destinations on the port information page. 

CruiseOne - Karber & Associates has selected the best group options in each port and packaged it all for you. Why venture out on your own when you can join your fellow TRF fans and enjoy time spent together in these amazing ports?

Have you ever seen a ghost? Well, you just might in Jamaica! It's said that the upper floor of the Rose Hall Great House is still haunted by Annie Palmer, who was murdered by one of her slaves. We'll be visiting this very infamous ghostly property, after  seeing many of the best sights around Montego Bay.

On our next stop in Grand Cayman, join us on the 'Cayman in a Nutshell' tour. This well-named tour is the cornucopia of everything a cruise guest would want to see and do in Cayman, and includes a complimentary lunch on famous 7 mile beach!

The best should always be for last, so the saying goes, and our cruise adventure follows suit. On our last stop at Cozumel, we'll visit an all-inclusive resort. Enjoy an incredible view of the Caribbean on an amazing beach, dip your toe in the warm January water, or hang out at the pool. In any case, enjoy all you can eat and an open bar on this incredible day trip.

This page will be updated so check back often! See below for the most current information.

TRF  King's Choice excursion Montego Bay
Rose Hall Great House and Highlights!
$79.00 Per Person

 


The fun starts as you leave the cruise ship port in an air-conditioned vehicle to spend the day in Montego Bay, the tourism capital of Jamaica and the second largest city on the island. Discover the city through the lens of history beginning with the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1494. Hear stories about Montego Bay's early days as a sugarcane port as well as its darker days of slavery.

 

Head to the heart of the city and stand on the cobblestone streets of Sam Sharpe Square, named after a national hero who was hanged for leading the revolt against slavery in 1832. While in the main square you will see other notable spots such as the civic center and the National Heroes Monument. Amid the colorful Georgian-style buildings you will find the Cage, a small stone structure that was once used as an overnight jail for drunks and vagrants. Stop at St. James Parish church and gaze up at the elaborate stained glass window installed in 1911. This 200-year-old church is laid out in the shape of the classic Greek cross and is surrounded by centuries-old tombstones. Continue to Richmond Hill, a property once owned by the Dewar family of Scotch whiskey fame. Stand on its terraces 500 feet above sea level and enjoy panoramic views of the city below.

 

Continue to Rose Hall Great House and tour the house and gardens as you learn about the slaves and its infamous owner, Annie Palmer. Legend has it she lived here in the early 19th century and killed three husbands as well as several male slaves she took as lovers before she herself was murdered by one of her slaves. Locals dubbed her the White Witch of Rose Hall and it is said her ghost can be seen in the upstairs portion of the house. Her legend lives on in the Johnny Cash recording "The Ballad of Annie Palmer."
