For Day 3 (actually Day 4 if we count the day we boarded) we landed at Falmouth, Jamaica. Falmouth used to be a wealthy port back in the 18th and 19th centuries. Now it is the Caribbean’s newest shopping mecca as well as tourist location for some of the same village houses. I was excited to check out Jamaica, because yeah its Jamaica! At this island our excursion was the Ultimate Thrill Seekers Pass at Good Hope Estate. From the description it sounded like my kids might be too small so we decided to leave them at Adventure Ocean Kids Club. I admit I was worried about leaving my 3 year old, Olivia, in her club because she was separate from her brothers (she was in the 3-5 year old room) and it was going to be about six hours, but she did absolutely fine, as did my boys. The kids club took them to lunch and they had activities planned for them. It was super nice too to be able to enjoy Jamaica with just my husband (and our group) and not have to worry about kids.
First we had breakfest in Windjammer (buffet style):
So what did we do in Falmouth, Jamaica?
We boarded a bus first off that too us to Good Hope Estate. Once there we had lots of choices of what to do, but we were all about adventure. We choose ziplining, river tubing and then touring the Great House which was built back in the 1700’s! We could have done ATV driving but I really wanted to see the Great House so we did that instead. I was bummed that I could have brought my boys as there were other kids there but I’ll know for next time.
Our lunch – first time I tried Jerk chicken and it was so good!
Here we are at the Great House:
Shops at the pier:
For dinner we ate at Giovanni’s Table, which is a speciality Italian restaurant. Its $25 per person 12 and up (11 and under is free) and it is served family style. The dinner but it was amazing and even my kids chowed down the food. I also love how accommodating the staff was. My middle child has food allergies so they went out of their way to get him a safe grilled cheese sandwich and fries from another restaurant and brought it to him – it made his day that he was treated so special.
One more thing we did was my 3 year old participated in the Adventure Ocean Pirate Parade! It was just for kids 3-5 years old and they dressed them up and paraded them down the main promenade. It was so adorable!
