    Cool Cruiser
  1. Last year, we stayed at the Embassy Suites San Juan and we loved it. There is a manager's reception at night with snacks and beverages and hot cooked to order breakfast/buffet in the morning. We took a tax and it was a flat rate. We didn't rebook this hotel as it was going through refurbishment and the hotel was more than I wanted to spend. The rate increased a lot since last year. This year we are trying the Intercontinental Hotel San Juan in the Isle Verde area. We did a day pass at the Marriott Stellaris last year when disembarked and awaiting our flights back home. That was a beautiful hotel/resort!! Good luck!
  2. I would suggest getting one of those umbrellas at your port of embarkation. I know when I go, I plan on going to CVS or Walgreens and picking one of before we board in San Juan.
  3. For anyone who has been to both secret sands beach and Trunk bay which beach would you go to? We have an excursion booked to St. John to visit trunk bay then saw this excursion. Not sure which one to do!
  4. I have an excursion booked to St. John to go to Trunk bay? I saw this excursion to Secret Sands Beach.... do these beaches compare? Trying to decide if so secret sands over trunk bay??
  5. Great, thank you! I thought maybe they were the same beach, but I wasn't a 100% sure with what I was finding online. Appreciate the feedback. I think we will just venture to the Aquarium on our own as the price and inclusions appear to be the same. :)
  6. Has anyone down the tour to the sea aquarium via viator? It’s only $21 per person and we have to get our own taxi there which is fine, but the list of things included in the tour seems inexpensive so I figured I would ask here. Also, is the beach a quick walking distance to aquarium? We will have kids ranging from 4 to 12 and want to do the beach afterwards. Any thoughts? I believe it is sea aquarium beach.... Thanks!
  7. I just got off the phone with JetBlue and they did change our flight to 2pm and we made out with this change, we were able to get a direct flight back. Thanks for all your advice!
  8. Thats what i was afraid of!!! Thank you!
  9. JetBlue just emailed to say they are changing our flights on disembarkation day from 1246pm to 9:46AM. Will we have enough time to get to airport and be able to get off of boat? We’ve only cruises once and last year I recall getting off the boat around 915AM. Figured I would ask before I call to change it. Thank you.
  10. I was there last year and my family loved it. I think someone on this thread was there recently though...it is a quick walk from the ship which is great! I just made reservations for our trip at the end of next month and we got the same price w no lunch... $20 per adult and $10 per child. I specifically asked for no lunch and the manager was accommodating. Good luck and have a great trip!
  11. Oops looks like I posted twice by accident! Lol Thank you for the tip! I will do that! :)
  12. Thank you! Even when I have a balcony, I don’t use it as often as I would like, but hoping to this trip... I am more so worried about being on deck 2 with noise or maybe I am overthinking it....
