Review summary

Overall this was a wonderful cruise.  Lots to do on and off the ship, yet never felt rushed.  Beautiful sites, but best to have excursions scheduled for Amber Cove DR port, because that side of the island is rather poor and not much to do unless you plan ahead.  Ship staff was knowledgeable and friendly (except for 1 woman at the excursion desk). 


Will definitely cruise again!

Cabin / Stateroom

Room is a good size for up to 3 people; lots of closet and drawer space. Bathroom is a good size and efficiently laid out with lots of shelving. Remember to bring a power cord as there is only 1 outlet in the room

If you are not adventurous, plan your excursion ahead as there isn't much to do on your own. However, if you prefer to rent a car, as we did, I definitely recommend Damajagua Falls!

Easily catch cabs and visit on your own- Beach at Isla Verde has jetski rentals, Condado Lagoon has paddle boarding- organizers are friendly and knowledgeable. Old San Juan is beautiful and lots of fun stores. Food is great!
