Voyager of the Seas made history – The first cruise ship to dock in Falmouth, Jamaica

Falmouth, in the parish of Trelawny, Jamaica, broke out in a carnival atmosphere as hundreds of residents to greet the arrival of the first cruise ship to dock at the pier of new construction. The cruise ship, Voyager of the Seas, made history as he pulled into the harbor at 8:00 am on Thursday, February 17, 2011, kicking off the cruise business in this small town in Jamaica.

There was the planned ceremony welcoming the tourism authorities in the spring, but the enthusiasm of the people who had gathered early in the morning to accommodate the large ship carrying more than three thousand passengers was the real surprise of the time. People from all walks of life, including school-age children during field trips, competing for a place to see the Voyager of the Seas and welcome tourists to going ashore. For many it was the first time I had seen on a cruise or something.

Reggae from Jamaica filled the air and kept the crowd in a festive atmosphere. There were arts and craft stalls, food stalls, a marching band and dancers performing Jonkanoo to the sounds of African drums. Even the beauty queen, Miss Trelawny, was on hand to welcome visitors, introduce them to Falmouth and answers to your questions.

The cruise harbor in Falmouth is a spectacular development of the Royal Caribbean cruise and the Government of Jamaica associated with over thirty hectares claim the sea Falmouth, an old, long since disappeared from its former glory, when sugar cane was King, therefore, is rebuilt and refurbished parts to bring it to a level that would allow visitors wishing to stroll along the pedestrian streets and explore its Georgian architecture.

Cruise ships calling at Jamaica, usually docked in Ocho Rios or Montego Bay. But now, Falmouth, midway between the two cities, adds a new dimension to food of the island, because there are many attractions and beauty spots in this area is much less developed. Visitors can tour the plantation, hiking in the mountains, raft or kayak on the rivers, along zip canopy tours, swimming with dolphins, explore the Cockpit Country, where runaway slaves hid by the colonizers British, and of course enjoy the beautiful beaches and the Caribbean Sea, with all its activities.

After the Voyager of the Seas at the base and the excitement subsided a little, two children came with a donkey dress-up, wearing a straw hat and baggy pants with bottles of rum in their back pockets. These people lost interest because of the cruise and followed the donkey around, take pictures and tell jokes. What started as a joyful acceptance of the Voyager of the Seas, the first cruise ship will dock in Falmouth, Jamaica, has become an exciting social for the residents of the city.

When the day came to an end and the sky turned red with the setting sun, Voyager of the Seas set sail and took time off from Falmouth and its inhabitants.
