We booked a private tour with Waterland Adventures. We took a boat ride to Isla Cardona, and had the whole island to ourselves for the day. Snorkeled, explored the lighthouse, swam, and sunned. Little lizards everywhere, they are so fun to watch. Chicken skewers were great, and they served $2 beer. It was a bit hectic getting to the dock from the ship - we were only the second ship in this port so they are still new to this but will get used to it in time as they learn. Overall a good trip and would do again.


A little new at the tourism thing but over all a real nice place with a little time this will be a very nice port not much at the pier but down town was nice we took a ride around the island and seen some really cool sights


I believe this was a first time stop at Ponce. We did not do an excursion there. Mayor was there to greet people as they disembarked. She really did a great job port side.

Great walkable city with a lot of rich history and culture. We walked old San Juan, El Morro fort and checked out some other places recommended by a local. Only down side to this stop is half a day which is not enough time in Puerto Rico. There is so much to do and the ship left at 1:30


This is a new port, and not a lot of options. When we went into town, they have a large police presence. If you go 1 block off there is none and it’s not a secure feeling. They are trying to make it a destination, but they have a long way to go!


We got off ship to walk around port area - next time we would stay on ship. Lots of Police presence.
