Hi! Our flight arrives into San Juan (hurricanes permitting ) on 9/12 at 12pm and then our cruise leaves that night at 10pm. I know we have to be on the ship earlier than that but having that much time in between, can we get away with cheaper transportation by taxi to the pier or should we spring for the transport via Carnival?

Thanks in advance!

If anything the Carnival transport will take longer since they will wait until the bus is full before heading to the pier. The taxi from the airport is a fixed cost (I think it is $25 but don't quote me. You can google on San Juan taxi costs and get your price.) So if you have more than one person in your party is can a good money saver.

Even though the ship does not depart until 10PM they will start boarding around noon. We got on as soon as they started boarding, had lunch and then got back off and visited Old San Juan. I would not recommend waiting around for the Carnival transport.

We took this cruise, departing July 4th. Take a taxi from the airport to the port. Least expensive way to get there. Price is set.

We were a group of 26, all arriving at different times. One couple were able to board at 10:30 am. They were the first on to the ship!

Enjoy. Have fun.....

Hi Mizzgee65,

Do you remember how much the taxi fare was from the airport to the port?
