A hotel taht comes to mind in San Juan was once a place where the Catholic nuns lived in complete silence back in the 1500's. To this day you cannot hear them. Even the ghosts make no noise. But it has been turned into a very attractive hotel, within walking distance of the port.

The hotel David is talking about is the El Convento Hotel. It is a very cool place to stay and is only a few blocks from the cruise terminal across the street from the Cathedral.

Another favotite hotel is the San Juan Sheraton located very near the cruise terminal.

Here is a ton of information regarding visiting Old San Juan....Have a great stay.

arie plugge,
Give us some of the details of your cruise on the Destiny. What is your cabin category (or stateroom number)? When are you going and what ports will you be visiting? If we have the details we might be able to give you more information.
Nancy

I hope you have had a chance to check out the information Tom suggested at our sister site portreviews.com. There you will also find detailed information and suggestions about each of the other ports you will be visiting.

Your cabins are very well situated mid-ship. I have stayed in a category 8B on the Destiny and 4 of us were quite comfortable. I am sure the suite (category 11) will be great!

As for upgrades once you are onboard: if the ship is not full, you may be able to upgrade (as long as you are willing to pay the price to do so). But, in your case, it is highly unlikely - First, you already have a category 11 suite, which means the only upgrade possible would be to a category 12 suite (and there only 8 of those on the whole ship). Secondly, the other cabins are category 8B, which means upgrading to a category 11 suite would be your option. Suites are usually the first to go on a ship, (and they often have a long waitlist) so I wouldn't count on one being available.

Nancy

If all of you would like to sit at the same table for dinner that can easily be arranged. Your travel agent should have cross-referenced your booking numbers indicating you would like to dine together. If you did not go through a travel agent - you will need to contact the cruise lines yourself and ask them to cross-reference you for dining (you will need everyone's confirmation number). As for requesting a specific table or section of the dining room - it can be requested but there are no guarantees - you may have to wait until you get on the ship and if you are unhappy with the location - speak to the maitre 'd.

As for a seaparate line up for cat. 11 - not sure what you mean??? Are you referring to the check in line at embarkation?

I do not have any first hand knowledge of the suites, but what specific questions do you have regarding the suite?

With regard to san juan hotel accomadations...I would defintely recommend the Caribe Hilton...the grounds are fantastic!!! The hotel also has several restaurants on premises to eat at i.e. morton's steakhouse, swim up pool bars etc. go to hilton.com and check it out for yourself...I don't think you'll be disappointed.
