I flew into SJU on 11/4 and flew back on 11/11, and I can confirm this was true for me.

I sailed on the Summit November 4-11 and flew to and from San Juan to do so. I didn't notice any drop off locations at the airport, but that doesn't mean they weren't there.

Thanks OP for sharing the news. The menu looks better than what I was offered a few years ago. I might have to give the steakhouse another try. I hope it's on the Splendor by the time I cruise on...
