Jamaica Culinary Tours

Jamaica Culinary Tours offers an amazing Falmouth shore excursion. They pick you up inside the pier area and show you a slice of the real Jamaica.

Earlier this week, I wrote about the Falmouth cruise pier. I mentioned that I wouldn’t want to go outside it on my own again. However, that doesn’t mean you should stay there. I wanted the kids to have an authentic slice of Jamaican culture. However, Royal Caribbean didn’t offer a Falmouth shore excursion which interested me. We made a private booking with Jamaica Culinary Tours instead. Our experience was amazing, and I was thrilled to experience this authentic slice of Jamaican culture.

Falmouth cruise pier

The Falmouth cruise pier in Jamaica is not an authentic slice of the Jamaican experience. It is, however, a beautiful place to shop, eat, and get a brief taste of local culture. Try the beef patty!

When I cruise, I like to get an authentic slice of local culture. For example, we went on a local culinary tour in Falmouth in July 2019. However, some folks also cruise for relaxation and the comfort of something familiar. If that is you, the Falmouth cruise pier is a great way to spend the day. It is clean, safe, and presents a ton of options for dining and shopping. There is even a local crafts market and a taste of the local cuisine.

Royal Caribbean lobster night

Royal Caribbean lobster night lets guest order unlimited lobster tails.

For me, one of the highlights of every cruise is the food. It doesn’t matter whether it is the main dining room, the specialty restaurants, or the buffet. I like good food in a nice setting. Royal Caribbean lobster night is a great example. While it has changed a little since our last cruise, the important things are there. You can have all the lobster tails you want, and there are several other excellent choices on the menu.

Stuttgarden Tavern Galveston restaurant

Stuttgarden Tavern is located near the Galveston Cruise Pier. They have ample seating both indoor and outdoor.

When we sailed this Summer, we had a big group. We wanted to eat dinner together, but not many restaurants are equipped to seat 14 people. Happily, we stumbled on Stuttgarden Tavern. It is located near the cruise pier, and they have cavernous seating both indoors and out. The grub at this Galveston restaurant isn’t fancy. It is, however, very good.
