Default Margaritaville Falmouth

Any idea when the Margaritaville in Falmouth will be open? Any construction updates or pictures? Can't find very much info, other than the original press releases.

Thanks for the information.

Looks like we will get to eat there on our cruise.

We have enjoyed Jimmy Buffet's at Ocho Rios.

Sent an email to Margaritaville Caribbean and received a reply back today from the general manager that they cannot guarantee when it would be opening but they were working very hard to get it open as soon as possible.

Uh-oh... seems "Jamaica Time" is setting in. The email I got from them about 8-9 weeks ago was that they would DEFINITELY be open by the end of January. Seems January will come and go...and maybe February, too. I'm thinking my fingers AND toes will have to be crossed for them to be even be open when we stop there in mid-March.

OH PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!! I hope it's open by the 12th of February! That would be an answer to my prayers!!! You see, I'm the girl that came down from Cincinnati....well, you Parrotheads know the rest of the story!!! My quest in life is to 1st find the perfect Margarita and 2nd to visit every Margaritaville! I was so bummed when I found out Falmouth was so far from Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, I mean, it's a car ride, but not sure I want to roam the countryside of Jamaica just for a margarita! I hope someone comes on and tells us some good news!!!

Hope it's open by our March cruise because I guarantee we WON'T leave the port area again based on past experience.

BABYBLUEYZ - No! I haven't been to that one! I will put it on the list. We are actually getting one in Cincinnati soon and I've been out of a job since last February when my company got bought out, so I'm thinking of applying for a retail position in Cincinnati, as soon as I can find where to do that! What a fun job, and boy the stories I could tell! Myrtle Beach, there was a fire but I thought all the alarms were the giant blender going off! Wasn't until the bartender took the tip jar and money drawer that I picked up my margarita (oh yes I did!) and exited the building. Another time my daughter & son in law joined us at again Myrtle Beach and drank them out of Landshark! We actually closed the place down on Saturday and Landshark was not widely distributed yet, so our last drinks had to be bottles of beer instead of draft...the next day we came in and asked if they got more Landshark and the waiter, big eyed expression said You're THOSE people?? I better get my manager! Hahaha There was never any problems...we just like to have fun and we were buying drinks for others in the house...we like to do that too! In Cancun my daughter was asked on a city bus when she 'worked' again...apparently she was on stage and having such a good time in the Margaritaville there, people actually thought she worked there! Should I go on?? Like having to babysit my 25 year old son in Key West Margaritaville just so he would make it back on the ship, and then BOTH of us looking at each other and thinking twice about it!
WOLFGANGHOWELL - Want to share your past experiences?? The things I've read on here and trip advisor are not very good. I'm wondering why RCCL would build this pier...but wait, probably so people will stay on the ship and spend money! hmmmm

Katy - we've been to Ocho Rios and MoBay before so don't see the need to go back. We've also climbed Dunn Rivers Falls. I would not leave the port area in Falmouth unless I were on an official excursion - period. In order to get to most beaches or excursions, you are on a bus for at least 20-30 minutes each way. Most are longer. They are shared rides which means multiple stops. Last time, our bus stopped at a grimy "shopping mall" that we also had to stop at before. There is nothing there but junk, with police standing around watching the locals try to approach to sell weed.

It's just too much hassle in Falmouth. I think Jamaica is lovely, I think the majority of the people are friendly but the obvious minority spoil it too easily. It's going to have be really amazing for us to leave the Falmouth port area ever again.
