I was a last-minute booking and payee, so I want to "thank you" for all your efforts to hold my room..
My cabin was awesome #4006 oceanview and in a good place on the boat for the price ($600 including all fees)..I booked on October 8th for the 10/21 sailing, so the choices were limited. We had late seating dinner (table for 6 at window) with 2 couples, one was an airline pilot and the other was a Black and Decker manager..Perfect matching of personalities..Every meal was interesting conversation with very delicious food..
The cruise staff was awesome..You got a smile from everyone..
SAN Juan.. No "tender " needed.. We got there on Sunday and went to 5:30 pm Mass at Saint Francis Church..It was so awesome..The church is located on Saint Francis street..to get there and back we walked thru the old city on most interesting cobbled streets, full of friendly people and vendors. There is a free trolley across the street from the port, but the traffic is so slow, that walking was faster..
Saint Thomas.. No "tender " needed.. Free tram from port to the little shopping mall.. We got an $8 taxis (a lot of fun) went to Meagan Bay beach ($4 a person). Truely one of the most beautiful beaches in the world..Lots of sand, breezy trees, and free picnic tables. water was excellent.. sand in the water was smooth as silk..excellent for swimming or floating..about 4 feet deep for about 1/4 mile out..excellent experience..when you are ready to return..plenty of taxis $8 to take you back to port..
