  1. Country Inn & Suites is on the same side of the street as Burger King, Zachary’s, and Kelsey’s.....
  2. That’s the way we have done it in the past. We always call the Crown & Anchor dept for a little bit better service...1-800-526-9723
  3. sounds like there are going to be a lot of Diamond and above on your sailing and they will not be able to open up an overflow area to accommodate everyone. If you enjoy the Diamond Lounge you better go early and stake out your spot.
  4. We have gotten this email at least 4 or 5 times.....each time we went to the terminal like we planned and experienced NO delay in boarding. Not saying this will be your experience but it was certainly ours....every single time.
  5. Since you were so disappointed in the Oasis I am surprised you booked the Harmony for New Years instead of a smaller ship that you prefer. Sadly it sounds like you have already made up your mind to be disappointed again. We are very excited to be on the Harmony (3rd time this year) for New Years. We love the ship and it’s hardworking crew! We have never felt under appreciated.... I do sincerely hope you have a great cruise.....
  6. We will also be on the Harmony this New Years.....This will be our first “holiday” sailing. Any day at sea is a great day, so I know I will have a great time!!
  7. our experience has been that show reservations can open up anytime from 90 days out to as late as 45 days before sailing.
  8. while not near the beach, we stayed at the Hampton Inn Brickell which was in the very nice financial district downtown. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance.
  9. We have stayed at the Marriott Waterside (our favorite) and Embassy Suites across the street and loved them both. Nice area on the water to walk around and have a bite to eat....right on the trolley line....and only about a mile from the port!!
  10. make sure your phones are set on “airplane mode”.....otherwise you could rack up some big bills...even if you are not using the phone!!!
  11. Self assist means you are able to carry off ALL of your own luggage with NO assistance. If you are not able to manage this with small children then try to get a low number luggage tag so you can get off the ship as soon as possible and pick up your luggage n the terminal....
  12. they do have an awesome pool!!! And they have a neat little Tiki bar that gets you in the cruising mood for sure. We have stayed here many times...
  13. the four hotels closest to the port are Homewood Suites, Country Inn & Suites, Residence Inn and Radisson At The Port. The first three have a free breakfast, the Radisson does not but has a restaurant on site and a restaurant next door ( Zachary’s) that serves a great breakfast! All four are less than 1.5 miles from the port. I have stayed at all four and have enjoyed each one...
  14. if you want a nice ship out of San Juan look at Royal Caribbean...Freedom of the Seas. A lot bigger ship that is so beautiful!! We sailed her 8 times before she left Port Canaveral because we loved her so much! You will thank me later....😁
