Actually, this is our 8th cruise, but the first one to the Southern Caribbean. We are excited about all of the new ports of call. Its nice to have so many, but like you said, we will be very busy for the first 3 days. We are flying form St Louis, Mo and the earliest flight gets to San Juna around 4:00 p.m. Did you all go down a day early? Where did you stay? How is the condition of the ship? We were also told that they have self serve ice machines and self serve laundry facilities? Is that the case? Thats a shame about that bridge, that was going to be one of our sites to see. Thanks for all of your help and info.
