    I bet you likely could have made it, but I wouldn't have wanted the stress either. Plus, you can take a leisurely pace to disembark.
    I think a lot of people forget that the airport isn't all that efficient and that all passengers have to go through an agricultural inspection which slows the process.

    Going with a less stressful Plan B. 
    Got a great rate of $119 at the Embassy Suites for a post cruise overnight stay. We can take our time getting off the ship, drop our luggage at Embassy, relax at the pool and/or spend the day enjoying San Juan. 
    They switched our flights to 10:22 the following morning at no charge. 
    Problem solved.

    NON STOP  Too many issues crop up now a days.   D.F.W.   has been a thorn in our side for years.   Then again so are some of the others as well. When we went to Barcelona 2 years a go we were on United and we were supposed to fly from Knoxville to Chicago to Frankfurt to Barcelona.  Chicago was closed due to weather so we were routed thru Atlanta on Delta to Barcelona.   Only problem was we lost our business class seats on the long flight and we were in separate rows.  Got to Barcelona fine and got reimbursed for the business seats.  The main thing was we got to Barcelona a day early and earlier than the original flights.  That was actually a godsend as I had a crown come off on the flight over seas  and I was able to get it re cemented on the  day that we got in to Barcelona at 11 a.m. and not 3:30 p.m.

    our last cruise, (November) we left out of SJ and the area still was in bad shape from the hurricane.   There was not really anything to see.  Now, our cruise was the 3rd one after SJ reopened to cruises. Our next cruise will stop in SJ and there are not a lot of excursion choices.   The airport was still in pretty bad shape at that time.  Not enough seats for people and the AC did not work well.   Also, when you are going home, plan on it taking longer to get through security.  Your luggage goes through a scan before getting into the airport, looking for agriculture items. (make sure you do that first because otherwise, they will send you back out at the desk, slowing getting through regular TSA.  The waiting for that line is outside.  TSA pre does not apply 
    Make sure you confirm the day of travel that the hotel has your reservation.  We had people at our table who came in the day before the cruise (came from Europe) and the hotel had no record of their reservation, even with their reservation number.   They were able to find a room at another hotel, but it was stressful.
    Non stop flight gets the vote here.

    We have AT&T and second what Twangster said. I found this link helpful when we were researching cell service for our upcoming Alaska cruise.

    My Alaska ship internet experience is limited to Celebrity at the moment, until June on Explorer.  Since Celebrity is part of the RCCL family I am expecting similar internet on Explorer as I had on Celebrity and I know it will not match Oasis class internet.
    Oasis uses O3b technology.  That technology is available at +/- 50 degrees latitude.  Alaska is well outside of this footprint.  So far out of the footprint that even normal satellite coverage for the lower 48 is largely fringe coverage up there.  On Celebrity I experienced this fringe coverage.  Some times it was pretty good, some times it was pretty bad and some times it was just okay. 
    My cell phone worked in all ports so between the two I managed just fine, but make no mistake it's not as good as the coverage in the Caribbean.  Unless you are one of those who believes the earth is flat, you'll have the curvature of the earth working against you.
