Cruising out of San Juan Puerto Rico is always sweet because Old San Juan is such a treat to visit. The Culture the history scenery all lend itself to putting the traveler in the cruise mindset. Added to this is the opportunity to visit the mall of America or CVS to purchase additional odds and ends for the trip or making the slow mindset back to reality after the cruise is over.
Added to this quality is the fact that cruising out of San Juan offers less time at sea so the cruiser can visit more islands. If one is on the jewel of the seas, we can visit Martinique, Guadalupe, Grenada, Dominica or if one chooses the Adventure or the Freedom of the Seas, one can visit the ABC islands of the dutch Caribbean or the US virgin lslands, St. Kitts, and the rest of the island chains down to Barbados.
As a single cruiser, the price is right as cruising out of Fort Lauderdale or Miami is generally more expensive. Cruising back to back is when one really gets value for money as one can visit 10 islands in 14days. Added to this experience is the quality of the food, the helpfulness of the staff, and the quality of the excursions. the only addition I can add is that Royal Caribbean consider a western cruise from San Juan.
I was pleasantly surprised with this cabin because I had been in a balcony cabin the week prior. the Oceanview stateroom at the front of the ship was bigger than the balcony cabin. The fact that it was at the front of the ship meant that I could look out in the early morning hours and see where the ship was prior to eating breakfast. Since I spend most of my time near the pool deck the Oceanview cabin was really great and I would consider it on my next cruise.
Got to see the village where my ancestors lived on board the train.View All 303 Scenic Railway Reviews
