December 21 - 23, 2017
The festive city of San Juan is the BEST place to “warm up” for your cruise and its a great way to start meeting a smaller group of your fellow travelers. Choose to come along with us into the vibrant Spanish colonial neighborhood of Old San Juan... or explore El Morro, a 400-year-old fortress and UNESCO World Heritage Site that tips the island northward...or join us on a tour of the Bacardi Rum Distillery. Or, do nothing at all but sip Pina Coladas on a chaise lounge, soaking up the sun poolside at your 4-Diamond resort. Whatever you choose, don't let Puerto Rico pass you by before embarking on your cruise.

Join us for an extended stay on this dazzling island for more fun-in-the-sun and of course, a New Year's celebration that will still rock the boat. New Year's Eve or “Año Nuevo” is a gala affair throughout Puerto Rico. Locally, Puerto Ricans hold a belief that the condition in which one keeps himself and his/her surroundings during the arrival of the New Year is the condition with which one will remain destined with for the rest of the year. And so, many locals will clean, fix, spend time with friends and joyfully celebrate. Puerto Ricans love to set off fireworks as an important and intrinsic part of celebrations. We will join in on the celebration at one of the BEST parties on the entire island. Don't miss it!
