Falmouth Cruises

Falmouth is positioned on the north coast of Jamaica and is well known being one of the best examples of a preserved Georgian town to be found anywhere in the Caribbean.

Founded in the 1700s, Falmouth was named after a small town in Cornwall that was the birthplace of Sir William Trelawny; then the governor of Jamaica.

It served as a major port for the export of sugar, rum and coffee before the abolition of slavery had a major impact on its fortunes; the port having been one of those where slaves would be brought to Jamaica from overseas.

Falmouth was given a new lease of life back in 2011 thanks to multi-million pound investment in a new cruise port that allowed big ships from the major cruise lines to dock in the town.

Designed to reflect Falmouth’s Georgian heritage, the port area is home to various restaurants that range from traditional Jamaican fare to international dishes from well known chains.

There’s also no shortage of options when it comes to shopping, with the chance to grab a duty free bargain or to head for the local craft market to barter for a deal.

Some will spend all of their time ashore within the port area but those who head into town can explore the historic Georgian architecture in buildings like the old Court House or the Anglican church of St. Peters.

Those who want to explore further afield can book into an excursion that takes you away from Falmouth to explore wider Jamaica.

Dunn’s River Falls is one place that you might want to consider visiting whilst there are no shortage of beaches if your idea of fun is simply sitting back under the sun or feeling the sand between your toes.

Various outdoor activities from ziplining and tubing to horse riding and kayaking are available whilst you might want to visit one of Jamaica’s sugar plantations to gain an insight into one of the industries that played a major part in Falmouth’s history.
