Cruises from San Juan

Cruises from Puerto Rico are offered all year long from its historic and culture-rich capital city, San Juan. A major benefit of taking a cruise from San Juan is that you can take a week-long cruise and reach exotic Southern Caribbean islands (such as Aruba, Barbados and Curacao), that you wouldn’t typically be able to visit on a cruise leaving from the U.S. It’s also nice to start a cruise in a country like Puerto Rico, since it’s a vacation destination in itself!

Puerto Rico — Cruiseable

Puerto Rico was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria in September 2017. Power on the island may be out for as long as six months. Be sure to check into the current state of services if you’re planning to visit the island in the near term.

 

Puerto Rico (Spanish for «rich port») is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. Puerto Ricans often call the island Borinquen, from Borikén, its indigenous Taino name. The island is  frequently referred to in Spanish as «La Isla del Encanto,» which means «The Island of Enchantment.”

 

 

  CRUISEABLE TRAVEL GUIDES

 

 

 

Puerto Rico is 100 miles long by 35 miles wide and, due to its geographic location at the center of the Antilles,  a crossroads of cultures. Puerto Rico has been a commonwealth  of the United States since 1898 and Puerto Ricans have been U.S. citizens since 1917.

Far more than resorts and beaches, Puerto Rico brims with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, fine dining, vibrant nightlife and excellent art museums. That being said, it’s also a great place to hike through a rainforest, explore underground caverns, snorkel, kayak or just relax on a beach.

Top things to do & see

Old San Juan

Take at least a half-day to explore the cobbled streets of the Spanish Colonial district with its massive fortresses that have guarded the island (even repelling a fleet led by Sir Francis Drake) for centuries. They include El Morro, San Cristobal and San Juan de la Cruz, all of them UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Among its many other charms are Plaza de Armas, a picturesque square dotted with historic statues, and Casa Blanca, a gracious 16th-century home built for Juan Ponce de Leon.

Beaches

Puerto Rico features a temperate climate, averaging 83 degrees F in the winter and 85 degrees F in the summer. Trade winds cool the coastal towns and temperatures fall in the higher mountains. San Juan’s beaches are concentrated in the hotel districts of Candado and Isla Verde, about a 10-minute taxi ride from the cruise piers. Or take a ferry out to the isle of Culebra to Playa Flamenco, with its broad span of white sands, turquoise waters and offshore reef that is a favorite among snorkelers. The beach town of Rincon on the west coast is the prime spot for surfing.

Shopping

Old San Juan is the place to browse for everything from fine art to kitschy souvenirs. Local items to look for include woodcarvings, masks, baskets, hammocks, ceramics and hand-rolled cigars.

Rum time

Puerto Rico’s most famous product is also a tour favorite. Frequent ferries leave from Pier 2 in Old San Juan over to the Bacardi Rum Factory where there are interactive exhibits on rum history and production as well as a gift shop and hibiscus gardens. Distillery tours and tasting can be enjoyed at Destileria Serralles, which produces Don Q, one of the oldest rum brands made on the island.

Art scene

Puerto Rico has a lively contemporary scene and an artistic heritage that includes the renowned 18th-century painter José Campeche. Art lovers will want to explore the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Galeria Nacionale and the Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Puerto Rico, all in San Juan.

Golf

There are more than 15 championship courses in the San Juan area, including two 18-hole, Tom Kite-designed courses at Trump International Golf Club.

Snorkeling & scuba diving

Escambron Marine Park right in Old San Juan offers snorkeling in protected waters. The island’s prime snorkeling and dive spots are found off Fajardo on the east coast where reefs and underwater caverns near a string of islets. Catamaran excursions to Fajardo are available from San Juan.

Casinos

Las Vegas-style casino gaming is available in some of San Juan’s luxury hotels.

Family-friendly options

  • Parque Las Cavernas de Rio Camuy: Kids will enjoy the tram ride to these massive caverns as well as exploring the surreal dripstone formations and underground river filled with crabs and blindfish.
  • Arecibo Lighthouse and Historical Park: This small theme park built around the Los Morrilos Lighthouse includes a seafaring museum and playground with a pirate’s cave and replica galleon.
  • Museo del Nino: Conveniently located in Old San Juan, interactive displays invite exploration of everything from hurricanes to space travel. 

YOLO (You only live once!)

Bioluminescent kayaking: A tour by boat or kayak of one of the bioluminescent bays in Vieques is a spellbinding experience. The microscopic organisms that live in the waters glow with an eerie blue-green light as they dart away from movement.

Don’t miss

El Yunque National Rainforest: A network of trails wind throughout this spectacular cloud forest on the slopes of the Luquillo Mountain Range. Hikers can hear the song of local coqui tree frogs, keep watch for elusive wild parrots and take a bracing dip in the pool at the bottom of La Mina waterfalls.

Best bets for dining

  • Pig out: One of Puerto Rico’s signature dishes is lechon, suckling pig slow roasted over wood flames. Restaurants that specialize in the succulent treat abound in and around Guavate in the southeast part of the island.
  • Old San Juan dining: El Jibarito and Parrot Club are celebrated for their take on classic Puerto Rican dishes, including fried plantains and red snapper. Ceviche, oysters, shellfish towers and other fresh seafood abound at Aguaviva. El Picoteo in the historic El Convento Hotel is an atmospheric spot for Spanish tapas and sangria.

Best time to go

  • High season: December-April
  • Shoulder season: May-June
  • Low season: July-November

Puerto Rico has a tropical marine climate with little seasonal variation, ranging from 70 to 90 degrees F. Hurricane season spans June through November, with rainfall likely to occur daily.

Fun facts

  • The piña colada was invented in San Juan.
  • Juan Ponce de Leon never did find the Fountain of Youth, but he did get to be the first governor of Puerto Rico.
  • The town of Loiza, founded in 1719 and populated largely by escaped slaves, is famous for its coconut shell masks used during religious festivals.

When you arrive

Docking information

Cruise ships arrive at one of the four cruise piers located along San Antonio Canal, a short walk to Old San Juan, historic sites and shopping. Many ships stay docked until late in the evening, so there’s a chance to enjoy local dining and nightlife.

Getting around

Taxis are available at the cruise piers. Look for white taxis with Taxi Touristico on the doors. A taxi from Old San Juan to the resort districts of Condado and Isla Verde costs  $12-$19.

Public transit: Free trolleys, which stop across from the cruise piers, go around to the major sites in Old San Juan. There is no island-wide public bus system, but San Juan offers two public bus systems for getting around the city.

Car rental offices are found at the airport or in major hotels.

Need to know

Documents: Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, so U.S. citizens do not need a passport.

Language: Although both English and Spanish are the official languages, most local people outside of the hospitality industry are not fluent in English.

Currency: The U.S. dollar

Puerto Rico and South Caribbean Cruise, August 2011. Part 1.

Puerto Rico and South Caribbean Cruise, August 2011. Part 1.

San Juan is the capital and largest administrative center of Puerto Rico.
We had 1 night in San Juan.

We did not drive around the city, because last time we looked at the main interesting places and sights. We lived at the Ritz-Carlton

From the airport to the hotel is a 5-minute drive, to the seaport of Royal Caribbean — 30 minutes.
The territory is compact, beautiful swimming pool, excellent beach. Check-in, though from 16.00, which is not very convenient, had to wait an hour and a half, but check-out as usual at 12 noon, and we agreed until 14.00, without any additional payments, in order to immediately go to the liner.
The room was with a sea view, not very large, although without any problems climbed extra. bed and the bathroom was great.
We were lucky with the weather, it was sunny, although according to the forecast it was supposed to rain. In the morning of the next day we managed to sunbathe and swim a lot.
Royal Caribbean Cruise Company, Serenade of the Seas.
The captain was a woman, the only one in this company.

Our cabin was on deck 10, Superior Ocean View with a balcony.
You can smoke on the balcony and on deck 11 near the pool, in specially designated areas.
From the upper decks of the liner, a beautiful view of the city of San Juan opens up. There is a runway for private jets nearby, and there was a good angle from the liner.

Main mare, called the centralist.

Every evening we were made various animal figurines, from towels and bedspreads.

This time we went to every evening show and were delighted with the great artists and programs. And the cruise director had a great sense of humor and was very funny.
The food was excellent, both in the restaurant and in the buffet cafe. In the restaurant we were spoiled with lobsters, and the buffet had very tasty sushi.

There were 5 islands: Saint Croix, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint-Martin. We were mostly lucky with the weather, except for the fact that Saint Croix and Barbados were changed places for us. There was a hurricane in Barbados. But fortunately, he passed Barbados, and went towards Florida! After the evening show, the cruise director showed on the map the location of the hurricane, how it moves, and how the route of our liner goes. Thank God, the captain can change the route, and it happens that the islands are canceled altogether. But we are, as they say, lucky!

First island of Saint Croix.
A car with a driver for the whole day cost $120.
The island is part of the US Virgin Islands and is the largest island in this archipelago and the former capital of the Danish colonies in the Caribbean. This island has one of the largest barrier reefs, so it is interesting for diving.
We drove around the old town of Christiansted, coast, salty river, several beaches, and stopped at Cane Bay beach.
Local rum Cruzan, which has been in production since 1760, was purchased for $10.

Hibiscus beach. Very strong waves and wind, the beach is empty! And very beautiful palm trees!

View from the mountain

Still deserted beach

Cane Bay

for 5 dollars.
