The story of how we booked this trip remains a little hazy. However, we are here in San Juan ready to board Jewel of the Seas later today.
The journey to get here was pretty long with a 5:45 start yesterday to get to London Heathrow. First flight was to Madrid with a 4 hour stop in transit. Next we flew to San Juan with Iberia. I thought Iberia was very good with much better food than BA and Virgin serve. The entertainment system was excellent and I was happy to see Rogue One had been added overnight.
Of course getting to London Heathrow in the first place had its traditional list of Family Vacation hold ups. We left several hours later than intended, had last minute shopping/packing & had several disagreements. All part of the tradition of our family vacation.
The flying day although long went pretty well & once we arrived in San Juan we went through immigration, baggage, got a taxi & in our hotel room in about 90 minutes. This speed on arrival was welcome after such a long day.
We are staying in the Condado Plaza Hilton which looks very nice. We were too tired to look around last night.
I can currently see the Jewel of the Seas in the distance from our balcony. Our trip will include St Croix, St Marten, Barbados, Dominica and Grenada.
Time for breakfast, an explore and then it will be time to board the ship.
I am going to attempt daily updates on this blog but with a packed schedule & drinks package we will see how it goes!
