  1. We are on this sailing and somebody on our cruise group on social media called Carnival regarding this and was told that the first boarding group would be at 2:30pm.
  2. @suesnake2002 We were in Coco Cay on May 8th and rented a beach bungalow. South Beach was absolutely beautiful. My family enjoyed the day playing in the water and hanging out at the bungalow.They were doing construction way down at the other end of the beach but not near where the bungalows are located.
  3. Loving your trip report. We will be on the Grandeur in a few weeks. The spot where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet is one of my favorite views. I turned one of the pictures that I took overlooking that spot on our cruise last year into a canvas.
  4. We docked in San Juan on our April cruise and did not have a lot of time in port. We had our 6 year old son and 9 year old daughter with us and we walked to the fort (Castillo de San Cristobal) and then on the walk back to the ship we stopped in a bunch of shops and ate lunch at Choco Bar de Casa Cortes. Our kids loved San Juan.
  5. We sailed on the Freedom last April (2018) with our 6 and 9 year olds and they absolutely loved it. In fact, they liked it better than the Disney cruise that we went on. They loved the kids club, the splash zone pool, and playing mini golf.
  6. No, we didn't. We walked up and back stopping to shop along the way. And on the way back we ate at Choco Bar de Casa Cortes.
  7. Both kids loved it. We got back to the ship about an hour before all aboard.
  8. They were definitely wrong. We went to Maho Beach and at lunch at Sunset Bar & Grill on May 2nd while on the Freedom of the Seas.
  9. We went to Maho Beach the beginning of May. Our kids are a bit older than yours, they are 6 and 9, but we had an awesome day watching the planes. The water was rough but they had a blast just getting their feet wet, playing in the sand with friends that they had made on our cruise, and watching the planes come in.
  10. I'm not sure when you are sailing but wanted to give input on this excursion. We recently did this excursion on the April 28th sailing of the Freedom and absolutely loved it. It was an afternoon excursion so we got off the ship in the morning, did some shopping at the port, got back on the ship to bring our purchases to our cabin and ate lunch in the Windjammer, and then got off the ship again after lunch for the excursion. The RCI excursion was with Greg's Safaris. The 4x4 vehicles took us on a tour of the island and through the rainforest. We stopped at a private property that was 1,000 feet above sea level to see the views. There was a walk up part of the hill on the property to see the view from the top but it was not very strenuous. After walking back down the hill they had passion fruit juice, guava juice, and local rum to sample. After sampling we got back in the 4x4 vehicles to tour the other side of the island. We stopped at Carambola Beach Club and got to spend an hour at the beach before heading back to the cruise port. It was gorgeous.
  11. We just used Google on our phone. It was really a great day!
  12. We were just in San Juan last week on the Freedom of the Seas from 7am - 2pm (all aboard was at 1:30). We are a married couple in our 30s with two children (ages 9 and 6). We got off the boat and walked to the fort (Castillo de San Cristobal) and then after the fort walked back down towards the ship and did some shopping along the way. We stopped to eat at Casa Cortes Choco Bar.
  13. Castillo de San Cristobal. We were just there last week on the Freedom.
