    Cruise changeover

    January 17 in Puerto Rico ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    Tedious day today after a tedious night of packing. The same cabin wasn't available for the next cruise. Had to be out of the room by 8am. Then at 9.30 immigration came on board to check those who were doing consecutive cruises.

    Then had to hang around until the rooms were ready at about 2.30pm. The consecutive cruisers as they call us were invited to an 'exclusive' lunch which was total shite. Had to send back an inedible pasta and ended up having bread and butter for lunch. Menu was crap.

    By this time weirdly we were exhausted so had a nap until the compulsory drill.

    Then potatoes beans and rice for dinner followed by tv. Exciting.

    New room a long way from the food. When you cruise the food is at the back and the entertainment at the front - well at least on Celebrity. So I prefer the back of the ship.

    Also previously we were on level 11 as part of a few staterooms and now we are on level 9 with an obstructed view which wasn't disclosed by Celebrity when we booked. Its not a real obstruction by ship standards but its annoying. I guess it will provide shade.

    Next was an announcement that they are fixing the ship's navigation system so we will be delayed in leaving San Juan by an hour. That was two hours ago.

    My guess is if they can't fix it in two hours then they need more expertise.

    We didn't bother to leave the ship as San Juan does not look enticing.

    Sea day cruise two

    January 19 in Puerto Rico ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    So we cruised out of San Juan at about 10pm.
    Lots of cheering and clapping from the passengers as we cruised out.
    We stood on our balcony and did the same.
    It was nice seeing the lights of San Juan and the fortress as we cruised out.

    Spent most of the day in bed going back and forth getting food. Why am I so tired. Need a port day!Read more

    San Juan, Puerto Rico

    March 26, 2017 in Puerto Rico ⋅

    Puerto Rico ist ein Freistaat und das größte und einwohnerreichste (3.412.000) Außengebiet der USA. Puerto Rico bedeutet 'Reicher Hafen', für 95% der Bevölkerung ist Spanisch Muttersprache, Englisch wird aber überall gesprochen. Dank seiner Lage im Nordosten der Karibik wurde Puerto Rico im Zuge der Eroberung und Kolonisation der neuen Welt wichtig für das spanische Imperium, im 19. Jahrhundert nach dem spanisch-amerikanischen Krieges beanspruchte die USA dann die Insel für sich.
    Wir durchlaufen hier den "Einwanderungsprozess" in die USA: "stay in a line!!", Fingerabdrücke, Foto, ESTA-Einreisevisum, all das dauert über eine Stunde. Dann nehmen wir den Shuttlebus nach San Juan, der 1521 von Spaniern gegründeten Hauptstadt mit 395.000 Einwohnern. Die schöne Altstadt mit den bunten Häusern und kunstvollen Balkonen aus Metall oder Holz und die Festung von San Juan sind UNESCO Welterbe. Nach 3 Stunden Erkunden der Altstadt, die heute am Sonntag aus allen Nähten platzt, kehren wir auf unseren Mariner zurück.
