Countdown Begins for the Arrival of Disney Cruise Line to Jamaica

posted on June 5th, 2013 by Arnaldo Zanonato, Port Adventures Manager


Like many of you, each year my team looks forward to the big news of which destinations Disney Cruise Line will visit next. Also like many of you, I was so excited when I heard we are going to Jamaica for the first time! I immediately thought of the beautiful natural scenery I experienced when I visited years ago on vacation, and I couldn’t wait to get started on the project of planning Port Adventures.

Now, with just four months until our first cruise calls on Jamaica, I want to show you some of the exciting and iconic experiences Disney Cruise Line guests can enjoy from the historical port of Falmouth.
Bobsled Jamaica - Visiting Jamaica with Disney Cruise Line

Bobsled Jamaica and Dunn’s River Falls – I am sure the young ones are thinking – bobsled in Jamaica? Moms and dads, help me out here! This incredible mountain coaster offers an exciting thrill along with amazing views of the sea, all inspired by the famous Jamaican national bobsleigh team, which debuted in the 1988 Winter Olympics.
Chukka Horseback Ride and Swim - Visiting Jamaica with Disney Cruise Line

Chukka Horseback Ride and Swim – One of the few places in the world that offer such a unique activity. For horse lovers, this is the ultimate fun in the sun combination.
18th Century Great House and Plantation Tour - Visiting Jamaica with Disney Cruise Line

18th Century Great House and Plantation Tour with Lunch – Care to “taste” some of the history? Tour one of the best-preserved Great Houses in Jamaica and the Plantation. Next, savor the world-famous jerk spices during a delicious lunch!

No matter which Port Adventure you choose, Jamaica’s lush green forests and awe-inspiring mountain vistas are sure to captivate! This port is the perfect addition to the Disney Wonder’s 7-night Western Caribbean itinerary, with stops in Cozumel and Grand Cayman, departing out of Galveston, Texas, this fall.

Look out for my next post, when I’ll tell you about our Signature Collection tours in Jamaica. Don’t forget, when the ship’s in port, venture ashore!

This looks amazing! My wife and I planned on a Caribbean cruise for half of our 5th Anniversary trip in 2016. I hope the Jamaican itinerary is still part of it when we go to book it!

OOOO!! Looks like I should pack my riding helmet. I have always wanted to ride a horse on the beach.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Jamaica, and we got a chance to ride it. Being a fan of both Disney and the Cool Runnings movie, I couldn’t pass it up.

The ride is located in Ocho Rios, Northern Jamaica, in a park called Mystic Mountain.

It’s a bobsled and coaster. You start off on the top of the mountain and wind your way down, careening through the rainforest. There’s one unique feature on this ride: you control how fast you go. This ride is only powered by gravity. On the sled theres a lever, and that’s basically the brake. So the more you pull on it, the slower you ride, and the less you pull the faster.

The sled accommodates one person, but you have the ability to link sleds together. I would only recommend this if both riders have the same speed tolerance. If not, then someone will either complain you’re going too fast or too slow.

I definitely recommend it.
