As usual, the New Year's Eve Ball at Round Hill hotel in Montego Bay was a resounding success. This year's theme was 'Shaken Not Stirred', paying homage to 1950s Jamaica, and its contribution to the birth of the James Bond character.

The evening started off at 8 p.m. with a cocktail party at the lower lobby lawn. There, guests were served the signature cocktail, Vesper Martini, or anything they desired from the full open bar as butlers passed round delectable hors d'oeuvres.

For dinner, the Seaside Terrace was decorated in black and white with hanging chandeliers as Chef Martin Maginley and his talented team catered a lavish dinner buffet including a caviar station.

Happiness Unlimited Band kept guests on the dance floor up to the countdown to the new year as the fireworks show took over. Then it, was over to DJ Gemini who kept the party going until the wee hours of the New Year. Here are the highlights:
