I haven't seen a slot machine that takes coins on any of the ships that I've sailed on in the last ten years or so. No use bringing a roll of quarters unless you can use them in the laundry room.

According to its website, Pamelas Restaurant and Numero Uno's location is Ocean Park, not Isla Verde. Ocean Park is much closer to the port and San Juan than Isla Verde.

Amen! I use a 21" carry on piece of luggage for a 7 day cruise. I'm not looking to pack more. After almost 30 cruises and 50 land vacays, the lighter, the better.
