We got to sight the entrance of Montego Bay before being advised that the local authorities had closed the port due to dangerously high winds.
As the ship has 119 Americans on board, all due to get off at Montego Bay, we couldn't just continue on to Cuba (US citizens are not allowed to visit Cuba – could we have dropped them off at Guantanamo Bay? I'm not sure - hehe). So we headed to Kingston at the other end of Jamaica where they disembarked late that evening. Unfortunately no-one else was allowed to leave the ship.
With another day “at sea”, the passengers needed entertaining so the guest lecturer’s pulled together and presented additional material.
