    Bamboo Blu

    I am also looking at this. I wish someone had an answer for you. I am on NCL and they offer a trip to Bamboo Beach reg or VIP for $69 / $99 I am up to getting somewhere by ourselves. I have done resort for a day and went to Dunn's River Falls Resort that was $99. Drinks good, food ok, coffee drinks excellent, excellent service. Just looking to save a little money this time around.
  3. NCL has a bamboo beach excursion with beer, rum punch and jamacian mojitos and food. Has anyone done this? I am debating going back to resort for a day at Dunns falls resort for $99, but NCL's excursion is only $69 anyone with any advice?
  4. we did dunns river falls resort with resort for a day. sandy beach. adults only. they have a grill or pizza or a buffet (ok), coffee bar...excellent, great drinks!! they bring you fruit in the pool. many shade areas, great service. they provide transportation to and from which is great! they have kayaks and a float to swim to if you want. going again jan 5. not sure I want the one with kids...not sure what i am doing
  5. We walked by it on the way back to the ship. Very close. Very small beach area for the number of people there. It does not scream NICE Jamaica beach day. If you want close and into the water, go for it. I opted to pay for Resort for a Day...more money ,but safe close transportation included right from the port.
  6. We also did resort for a day. Went to Jewel Dunn's River for $90. It was good. Going back in Jan. may try another one, but really like the adult only.
  7. We did Jewel's D. River Falls resort. No lazy river and was $99 each. Great drinks, beach, service. just more $$ I am going to check out the $60...hope its still affordable. Going back in Jan
  8. What did you decide on?? Anyone with updated reviews?
  9. Is Ocho Rios up and running??
  10. I am on the Freedom in Jan. I liked this picture as well. How did your trip to the beach go? Did you walk or take a cab?
  11. ok, after research, I found... 1. Walk 30 min or short cab ride to Turtle Beach, now called Ocho Rios Bay Beach. A few dollars entrance, rent chairs, trees for shade, no umbrellas. Water and beach just ok. 2. Margaritaville close to port. Free beach, rent chairs/umbrellas. 3. Resort for a day.. $$, but provides safe easy transportation to and from port. Runaway or Jewel River Now to decide...
  12. its a pain. We had to jump line and steal an early place on a 1/2 empty tender to make our private tour. almost missed it
  13. What do you tell the bus when you want to get off at Calico Jacks? Are there restrooms here?? ( I know its a restaurant) I looked at Royal Palms...looks crowded and party time. But for 5 of us...the cabana looks ok and nice restrooms
