My husband and I boarded the Carnival Splendor on May 31st to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. This was our second Carnival Cruise, but our 10th cruise together. In the past we have usually sailed with our four teenagers.
I thought the boarding process went quickly and within fifteen minutes we had our sail and sign cards and went about to sight see in San jaun. I loved the cruise director Malcolm and his staff. we went to a lot of trivia and some other activities. these were all held in the lobby and you needed to get there early to find a seat.
The musicians on the ship were great,but did not love the shows in the lounge.
The cabin had a strange noise to it that could be heard each night. Also, it took two entire days to get a new fridge as the one we had stopped working.
when you leave the port walk to your left and about two blocks over we hopped on the trolley car Old San Juan has a free trolley service to help you get around the city. The trolley runs Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 7:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am until 7:00pm (except the Green route, which runs only 9am- until 6pm or so). Just stand at any of the marked trolley stop signs and wait for the next trolley to come along. You can get off at any marked trolley stop. we used this to visit the forts and to get into the town
hi i followed the directions on here to use public transportation to visit nelsons dockyardOne of the attractions that we wanted to visit was Nelsons Dockyard. It was very easy to get to by local bus. We jumped on a number 17 bus from the East Bus station (300 yards to your right as you exit the port). The bus fare was 1.50 US dollars per person each way and it took 35 minutes to cross Antigua. The bus drops you at the entrance of the Dockyard. this was an interesting way to see the island
