Falmouth Cruise Port Tours

Falmouth Cruise Port
For many visitors taking a cruise to Jamaica, Falmouth Cruise Port is the first introduction to the island famous for its laid-back vibe. The port is right in Falmouth town, which is on the northern coast of Jamaica and located within one of the best-preserved colonial historic districts in the Caribbean.
 
The Basics
Founded in 1769, Falmouth, in Trelawny Parish, was named after then-Governor Trelawny’s birthplace in Cornwall, England. In the 1800s it was one of Jamaica’s busiest ports, trading sugar and rum, and it was also a place where plantation owners could buy and sell slaves. The town was meticulously planned, and many of the stately Georgian buildings still remain today. It’s a short walk from the cruise port into town to explore the historic center.
 
The cruise port opened in 2011 to accommodate a new breed of super cruise ships holding up to 5,400 passengers at any time. You’ll find everything from upscale jewelry shops to American chain restaurants and souvenir stores in the cruise terminal. Many cruise passengers choose to book island tours and shore excursions to make the most of their time in Jamaica, traveling to Ocho Rios and Dunn’s River Falls, exploring the Rio Bueno river, or learning about the lasting heritage of reggae musician Bob Marley, one of Jamaica’s most famous sons.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The official currency on the island is the Jamaican dollar, however US dollars are widely accepted.
  • Keep an eye out for the stone cage in Falmouth harbour, it was built to hold drunk and disorderly sailors.
  • The port is the pickup and drop-off point for many island-wide tours.
 
How to Get to Falmouth from the Falmouth Cruise Port
