If I understand what I've read of the customs process, the disemarkation process takes longer if the port of call preceeding the final destination is another country...therefore, if one is sailing to/from San Juan and one visits Charlotte Amalie the day prior, customs will have been dealt with on St. Thomas because PR and USVI are both US territories, yes?

I'm attempting to figure out what would *reasonably* be the earliest time one could walk-off w/luggage and get to Isla Grande airport to catch a fight to Vieques following the cruise.

Insight much appreciated.

The debakation process is more about the luggage than the immigration process. If you check with the purser's office and let them know that you have an early flight and are willing to carry your own luggage off the ship, you should have no problems making an early flgith in PR.

I loved the post on getting the train to Rome. This will aid us greatly. What is a "no walking" rule?
