  1. Has Celebrity stopped sailing out of San Juan, P.R.??
  2. Looking for opinions on the Enchantment of the Seas out of San Juan. Looks like she has not had a refurbishment in 8 years. Is she looking old? Is she too small to find enough entertainment for a 19 yr old? We love the ports of call out of San Juan, but I am concerned the 19 yr old will be disappointed with this ship. Thanks for the opinions, good bad or indifferent.
  3. We have booked for 1/10/2021 departing San Juan. There are others not yet booked that intend to join...However a few have expressed concern about departing out of Puerto Rico instead of a Florida port due to Puerto Rico still being in some disarray from hurricanes of the past 3 years. I don't want to have to start over if I don't need to but I'm feeling the pressure. Please share your thoughts on yay or nay with San Juan, especially during the month of January. Also the reason we chose San Juan was because we're going southern Caribbean and there was a savings on a 7 day depart PR as opposed t
  4. So when we booked the cruise we purchased the Royal Caribbean round trip airport transfer. Our flight doesn’t leave until 4:45pm and my husband and I would like to explore old town San Juan. Any suggestions on the best way of doing this? Do we just not do the airport transfer and get a taxi instead? Can we explore San Juan and get the RC transfer later in the day? Should we take the airport transfer right after disembarking and store our luggage at airport and then take taxi from airport to explore San Juan and back? I have no idea what I’m doing as this is our first cruise. Any suggestions we
  5. In a perfect world we would have been able to enjoy more time in San Juan, but that's not the case. We will arrive the afternoon before the cruise and plan to enjoy the beach at our hotel in Condando. Our return flight is at 3:13pm. I am interested in doing the RC San Juan on your own w/airport drop-off because it takes care of our luggage and gets us back to the airport, but it states our flights must be 3:30 or later. Will the 15 minutes make much difference? Here's the link from cruise planner: Can I book it? https://secure.royalcaribbean.com/cruiseplanner/category/1002/product/1
  6. Hi!!! Quick question. I want to go to the Bacardi distillery prior to boarding ( I won't have time when we return). We are leaving out of San Juan (not a port). Is there a way to check my alcohol in with security (to hold until the end of the cruise) prior to boarding? I don't want to buy from the distillery, if I cannot check it in with security. Does anyone know??? Thanks in advance!
  7. Our cruise leaves out of San Juan and I wasn't really planning anything until flights were booked. We are flying in the day before and staying at the Condando Plaza Hilton (free with points, yay!) Unfortunately we have to leave the same day the cruise returns and our flight is at 3:13pm. I figure that gives us some time to disembark, take a cab to Barrachina's & explore that area for a bit before heading to the airport. Not ideal, I know San Juan has so much more to offer and hopefully we can return again some day and do that. I'll preface this by saying this Jersey girl was
  8. I am SO excited for my family's very first cruise ever this July (7-14) on the Allure. My mother- and father-in-law (avid RC cruisers) are treating my family of three (me, husband, and son who will be 3 weeks shy of 6) and my brother-in-law's family (husband, wife, 13 and 15 year old boys) to the cruise and are helping us with transportation there. We will be responsible for all extras (excursions, premium dining, tips, etc.). I am having difficulty navigating the shore options available to us and haven't been able to find any sites that review the options. Ideally, I would like to take o
  9. I'm doing something I never do and don't recommend. I'm flying in the day of the cruise, tomorrow. Coming from the US West I'm taking a red eye tonight at midnight to NYC then off to San Juan in the morning landing in San Juan at 12:05pm. I booked air through Royal's Air2Sea program plus I have travel insurance so between the two and with a evening sail away I'm rolling the dice. I came across a deal on this 5 Night cruise and couldn't pass it up. $549 all in, solo in a balcony with $50 OBC. Air2Sea was actually cheaper than Delta direct plus it provides some limited coverage
  10. We are taking Adventure of the Seas from San Juan. We are flying in the day before and are spending the night in San Juan. The boarding information says boarding begins at 12:30 pm. Is it possible to check out of our hotel, and drop our luggage off at the cruise terminal, so we can spend more time looking around San Juan?
  11. HI there! I'm sailing on Adventure out of San Juan on Saturday, stopping in St Thomas, St Kitts, Curacao & Aruba. I'm kind of silent member, I listen to all of Matt's podcasts, and peruse the blog and forums quite a bit, but dont speak out too much. :) I've learned so much here and would love to help pay it back and help contribute. I'll possibly blog here each day, if there is anything you want to know, feel free to post here and I'll see how I can help. **5 days and 23 hours, but who is counting?!**
  12. First time with an Embarkation Day that has a Late Evening Departure (8:30PM). Just a general question about luggage, where/how to be luggage free during the day. What to do with luggage if we wanted to explore San Juan during the day, before Embarkation? We do plan to travel into San Juan the day before & have a hotel, but: Curious if the hotel would hold the luggage for the day, even after check-out time (assuming a fee perhaps)? Could we drop it at the ship porters earlier in the day? Thanks All!
  13. Way back in March I booked (using my United miles) the Sheraton Old San Juan for the night before our 1/7/18 Southern Caribbean Cruise. I've been hearing rumors about last minute hotel cancellations in San Juan either due to hotel hurricane recovery issues or hotels housing relief workers instead (some sources are claiming the hotels get more $$$ from the relief funds). I had not heard a peep from the Sheraton, but I decided to call today to check on my reservation and they advised me that they are not accepting guests until 1/8! I have since been on the phone with United who is telling me
  14. I'm looking for feedback on the rainforest driving excursion (SJA7) in San Juan. Is it worth it? My husband and I are mid 50's.
  15. Can anyone tell me which pier the Oasis will probably use for a port call in San Juan? I am trying to figure out if it is around Pier #1 or #3 (right next to Old San Juan and trolley stops)? Or if it will be across the bay at the Pan American pier (which will require a taxi to get back over to Old San Juan)? This is not an embarkation from San Juan, just a port call. But I have read that the Pan American Pier is for the bigger ships. We are scheduled for June 2017, on the Oasis, and I am enjoying the early planning and soaking up everyone's tips and suggestions. Also any suggestion
  16. What are some of your favorite San Juan restaurants for nice pre-cruise dinner?
  17. I will be taking my first cruise with Royal Caribbean this summer and docking at San Juan, St. Maarten and Haiti. Which would be the best location for scuba? We also go to Bermuda, but have already dived there once before.
