Counting down the days now and so excited!!
I had heard that the ship (AOS) doesn't provide shampoo or soap in the bathrooms. Is this correct? Also does the ship provide towels that I can bring on port calls for the beach? I want to pack well especially since there are five of us!
One more- our cruise papers say boarding is at 2:00 here in San Juan. How much earlier should/could we actually show up and get on?
Thanks so much.

Soap, shampoo and towels are all provided. When we went on the AOS we showed up around noon.

Hello gabbyw, don't believe every thing you hear. You'll be provided all the soap and towels that you need. You'll also be provided with large towels to take with you to the beach. Make sure you return then to the ship. You should be able to board the ship around noon, however, you won't be able to go to your stateroom until 1:00 or 2:00 pm. Your luggage will be delivered to your stateroom during the afternoon hours. I always head straight to the Windjammer with my carry-on and have a nice lunch. I'll be boarding the Independence of the Seas about the same time you'll be boarding the Adventure. I'm almost done packing.

No one very says they didn't bring enough. Pack your clothes, take half out. Have a blast!

Crazy girl, I may not be the one to advise on packing, despite the the airline getting me $25 for an extra bag, i can't manage getting everything into one bag. No laundry center, and the cruise laundry is kinda pricey. So i just pack away, and enjoy. You can certainly bring your laptop, lots of WIFI available on Voyager class.

Crazy, help yourself to all the Tequila you'd like on the island, but anything (liquor) you bring back on noard will be held for you till you disembark. Cruise Line rules....
Strike that about all the Tequila you'd like, cuz catch a good seat to watch all those struggling down the pier after and afternoon at Carlo's and Charlie's....GREAT PEOPLE WATCHING !
