San Juan, Puerto Rico Arrives at 3:30pm - Jan 09, 2017, Departs at 11:00pm - Jan 09, 2017

"No need to book an excursion here. Walk off the ship and walk the old city on your own. It's beautiful!" - williamrneu
"Our favorite port! If you do not have an excursion, follow the wall to the very end and see the gate where travelers would crawl on their knees to the cathedral in Old San Juan and follow the blue cobble stone road to some amazing shops and restaurants. The visitor's center has all of the information you need to decide what to do- and there is plenty! " - slwiebe
"Very blessed the San Juan did not sustain serious damage from Irma and we had a place to return to. The people of San Juan were very kind and generous even though they were cleaning up after the storm." - jmccam

Basseterre, St. Kitts Arrives at 8:00am - Jan 11, 2017, Departs at 5:00pm - Jan 11, 2017

"prior to going to st Kitts, I thought I wouldn't like it. there wasn't much that appealed to me in terms of tours. we decided to take a taxi to the beach and hope for the best, worst case scenario go back to the ship early. boy was I wrong! !! took a taxi to south friars beach, I believe we paid $8/pp. our driver stopped along the way for us to take pictures and explained about the island. rented 2 chairs and umbrella at Carambola for $22. it was gorgeous! nice beach and beautiful scenery. some limited snorkeling right off the beach near the pier as well. the bar in the resort was a bit slow as it got busier toward lunch, but that's a minor issue. so glad i was wrong about st. kitts, and I can't wait to go back!!" - mikentara
"Beautiful island! Take a tour to Cockleshell Beach, you won't regret it!" - Karencruiser68
"This would be a green happy face if not for one thing. Although in general the people were beautiful and the place was gorgeous, be warned-you will see monkeys that are trained to take pictures with people and for the most part they are very well taken care of, but I did see one handler that was mentally unstable and he was physically abusing the poor little baby monkey he kept tied up, making her scream and try helplessly to get away from him, which utterly broke my heart. If you see him, DO NOT pay him!! He is known by the locals as "Chazzy," a large, heavy set black man who steals tips left on tables by using the monkey and also tries to con tourists by taking pictures before he tells them the price-and he charges double what everyone else does. The other monkey handlers were super cool and very kind to their monkeys, I just had to make this review in hopes that it might possibly help prevent more monkeys from being abused. Thank you for your attention." - music55rachel
