I'd sail with you any time Cas! We had no issues with Puerto Ricans on our Victory cruise. We arrived a day early and did some sight seeing and found that most of the people were very nice. I can't imagine being able to be that patient with tourists day after day, but somehow they managed.

Cas is correct, every nationality has its share of rude/obnoxious people and its not nice to paint everyone living in PR in the same light.

Cas... your cruise is getting closer... I bet you can't wait to be cruising again!

Hi Cas...quick question for you regarding your comment about what is presently going on in Puerto Rico. I will be traveling there in a couple of months...should I be concerned?
as far as the comment made about traveling with persons from there and that port...or any other area...I have always found people of all areas to be a mix of rude and nice no matter where you are from. I have been on ships departing from various places and never had a problem with any culture. It really depends on you and the type of person you are. The truth...I have been on ships that departed from FL and NY and found some of those individuals to be rude at times and no more or less from Europe or ports in the Caribean. In general...people need to relax..be nice and accepting of all cultures and you'll find we will all get along just nicely.

I believe Casanova's comments have to do with the current economic woes having a huge impact on Puerto Rico. Lots of unemployment on the island.

Yes, PR depends on tourism which we all know is suffering with the economy. Hopefully things we start picking back up with the signs of life we are seeing in the markets here.

I absolutely agree it doesn't seem to matter where you are and whether you choose to make it a big deal or not really is up to you
I was more concerned due to things I had read recently and wondered if it had gotten worse in the past 1-1/2 since I was there last.
Again, thanks for all of your feed back!
