Which Pier Does Royal Caribbean Use?

Recommended Posts

We'll be arriving on the Allure OTS on February 20, 2020. We will be the only cruise ship scheduled that day. My question is, which of the piers will we dock at? On the maps I see Cruise Pier 1, Cruise Pier 3, Cruise Pier 4, and Cruise Pier 6. Anyone have any idea which one? TIA!

We've seen ships at mostly 3 - Anthem, Allure, Harmony, etc.  But the small ship we were on was at 1 quite a few years ago.  

 

4 is an actual embark/debark terminal.

Agree...RCI uses #3 usually for day porting their ships.

We were on Allure last December 2018.  Allure docked right in the Centre of Old Town.  Right across from the Sheraton Hotel.  Very very convenient.  Walk off right in the thick of it.

Royal Caribbean uses pier 3 for day stops. Mainly because its the only pier that can accommodate Oasis and Quantum-class ships in San Juan. Lately, RCI has been doing port calls almost exclusively with Oasis-Class ships so it's basically their only choice. Carnival (and affiliates) uses pier 4 for port stops and for embarkation of the Fascination while pier 1 is used mostly by smaller ships (Viking, Oceania, etc.).

Keep in mind there are no shops there. You just exit the ship. But the shops are right across the street.
