We are flying in from California (long haul) and are going to stay a day to cure jet lag before getting on the Carnival Destiny. I heard there are more than one port so to pick a hotel I need to know where Carnival parks the buggy? Is it next to the Shertan? Also is the Milano a good hotel if anyone knows?

The ships dock in Old San Juan which is about a twenty minute ride from the airport.

If you want to be near the airport, try Isla Verde for your hotel. To be in the old city is a special treat and you will be very near the cruise ships. El Convento hotel is very popular but I have not stayed there.

What is up with changing the name of the nice Hotel near the pier that used to be a Wyndham?

What is it now?
The one with the Casino.

How does the new Non-Smoking law in P.R. affect the casinos?

Thanks Ken Chef I made a note and will go in and check these out. The Milano also is in old San Juan not far from the Shertan. IslandCruz from what I see near the port is the Shertan could this be the Windham? Hope someone answers that question as I am searching all hotels near the ship. Non Smoking in PR...interesting

I WILL figure this forum out!!!

Here is a map that will help you see where places and hotels are around the pier area. If you click on the name of the hotel, you will have a link to their website.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. I do go a lot to another forum and have found a wealth of info there. It is great to share. Speaking of that, here is a really good map of OSJ that you might enjoy.

Looked at your pictures...they were beautiful! You have been to San Juan? Do you know what Pier Carnival is docked at 1-6? You really have done the Carribbean!!!

Sheffie 04-01-2007 04:49 PM

Carnival docks at the foot of Old San Juan. Some RCI ships dock over at the Pan Am pier, especially those whose cruises start and end there. Here is a calendar that tells what piers the ships dock at.

Glad you liked my pictures. We had fun going to all of those places!
