Cruising From Puerto Rico

Port of San Juan, Puerto Rico
Looking for an exotic vacation without the inconvenience of numerous airports and hotels?  Taking a cruise from Puerto Rico is your answer.

The main port for a Puerto Rico cruise is San Juan.  San Juan is the second largest cruise port in the Western Hemisphere.  The city welcomes over a million cruise ship passengers every year.  In San Juan, you will either meet up with your ship, or just stay for the day, if you plan on visiting other Caribbean islands.  Meeting up with your ship in San Juan, is usually more convenient if your traveling from the States, as it saves you the time of cruising from different departure ports in the mainland, and getting you faster to the Caribbean.  The Caribbean, is the most popular destination in the world for the cruise ship industry, and Puerto Rico is one of the most popular places to visit. 

The cruise terminals are located in the San Juan Bay (Bahia de San Juan).  The ships dock in two places: In Old San Juan, where you walk off the ship, into the center of this historic city.  The other location, is on the other side of the bay, at the Pan American terminal, across from the Convention Center.  

These are some of the cruise lines that schedule cruises to Puerto Rico: Carnival, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruise, Cunard, Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Princess Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, and Royal Caribbean.

These are some of the destinations served by the cruise lines: Aruba, Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Florida, Jamaica, Mexico, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, US Virgin Islands, and Venezuela.

A Puerto Rico cruise will allow you to explore the top attractions of this exotic island.  There is so much to see, and do, and cruising takes care of your food and lodging accommodations throughout your travels.

Bon voyage!
