    Cool Cruiser
  1. Hi! We will be on the cruise with you! Love that you are documenting your pre-cruise experience! My DH and I will be traveling with our four kids: DD (20), DS (17), DS (14), and DD (12). We are excited to share this cruise with the kids as this will be their first cruise. My husband and I have not been on one since our honeymoon almost 24 years ago. With one in college and one ready to graduate high school next year we decided it was time! I’m glad to see that you need a staging area also! I just determined that we need to take an extra suitcase for all of the “stuff” we have to take! I’m glad to say that I am 98% done with packing and I am currently on autopilot trying to get through today and tomorrow. We are heading to San Juan on Wednesday. Cannot wait!

  4. This may sound silly, but I am trying to estimate how much cash I am going to need for each port for my family of 6. I understand that taxi’s charge by the person. If you have taken a taxi from the port to Magen’s Bay Beach can you share the rate per person? Also, does the bar at the beach take credit cards or is it cash only? Thank you!
  5. Thank you for the info! Heading there July 7th! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. Ellis was very nice and patient on the phone when I spoke with him last week. He even ended up calling me to ask me a follow up question. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Ellis is on FB. “Tours with Ellis” You can message him and he will respond the same day. I called him last week to book a rainforest tour. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. I know a lot of places do not permit young children to zip line. They usually have kids wait until they are 10 or so to do the actual zip lines. They often let them do other activities (obstacle courses) if they have them and they are appropriate. We have 4 active kids (12-20) and will be there for 3 days before our cruise. We plan to visit the forts, Old San Juan, rent a kayak or paddle board (bunch of places on laguna del condado), and visit some beaches. (A few ideas) I’d love to visit the rainforest but not sure what will be open. Whatever you decide I am sure you will have fun! [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
