    Rio Bayamon Golf in San Juan

    I did find a phone number for the pro shop: 787-707-3980.

    I still owe you this info. I haven't been able to stop by the club.

    Absolutely. If you have a retired DoD ID, you can get in without problems.

    San Juan Embarkation

    Except for Viking. Viking made special arrangements with the Puerto Rico Ports Authority to berth at Pier 1 in Old San Juan for all embarkations but the next two, which the US CBP has issues with (usually because of the very early departures). After the 11/27 and the 12/18 Amazon cruises, the situation should revert back to the previous arrangement.

    San Juan Embarkation

    Viking will run a shuttle from the Pan American Pier to Old San Juan (Drop off and pick up at Plaza Colón/Columbus Square).

    Norwegian Jade mechanical issue

    Didn't something similar happen to a Royal Caribbean ship in San Juan a few years ago? I believe the Jewel or Serenade of the Seas. They had to replace a propeller or two, and they did it right there in San Juan, while the guests spent their "cruise" all week on board. I think they finished the job in time for the ship to make an overnight sojourn to St. Thomas and back for the next turn around.

    JADE CRUISE CANCELED DURING CRUISE

    The Omni flight, since it was delayed coming into San Juan, could not get clearance to depart tonight so that flight is cancelled and the same airplane will depart SJu at noon tomorrow. These passengers (purple tags) are being sent to the El San Juan Hotel to overnight, then a mid-morning-sh transfer back to the airport for their second go at MIA.

    JADE CRUISE CANCELED DURING CRUISE

    Since the ship will be towed away to Miami at 7:00 PM, passengers need to get off, but not all can go to the airport at the same time and overwhelm the facilities there, so those on later flights or otherwise will be staged at the Convention Center. Hopefully momentarily.

    JADE CRUISE CANCELED DURING CRUISE

    Anyone following this thread assigned to (perhaps, maybe, depends) the late evening flights?

    JADE CRUISE CANCELED DURING CRUISE

    SJU is the only airport they're using BUT the confusion might be that some charter flights are leaving from the regular passenger/commercial/airline terminal and others are leaving from the cargo area of the airport way over on the other side, handled by Jet Aviation, a private/corporate airplane terminal or FBO. Also, the airport you see right next to the ship is not SJU, but a small executive airport. SJU is 5 miles to the east of the port.

    Have a safe flight(s) home. Hope to see you in again PR in the future under better circumstances.

    I also see a World Atlantic B737 with 150 seats departing SJU at 6:00 PM AST.

    JADE CRUISE CANCELED DURING CRUISE

    Conflicting news. Now I got word that the Eastern charter B767 is on the ground in SJU. Not the main terminal, but on the other side of the airport at the cargo/private aviation area.
