Cruise Port

When one says, "Puerto Rico Cruises", one actually means cruises from the San Juan Cruise Port in Puerto Rico.

San Juan is the capital city of Puerto Rico and the originating city for some exciting Southern Caribbean cruises.

The San Juan Cruise Terminal is such a popular cruise port that many top Caribbean cruise lines sail from that port.

Reasons for Cruising From
San Juan Cruise Port

Puerto Rico is very appealing and enticing to the "true" vacationer. The island is covered with beautiful beaches and is rich with history. 

Whether visiting San Juan, the capitol, or some other city, you will notice buildings dating back to the days of Spanish colonization.

By comparison, you will also find many modern resorts, casino complexes and huge hotels.

Puerto Rico's visitors also find duty free shopping and quite tasteful island cuisine. 

Traveling To Puerto Rico
Cruise Port

Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory and its inhabitants are U.S. citizens. Consequently, Americans do not need a passport to travel to and from Puerto Rico.

Cruise passengers from other countries will need a passport and a U.S. visa for entry. 

The island has a handful of major airports and so flying in should not be a problem.

Nearest Airport To
San Juan Cruise Terminal

San Juan International Airport is the nearest airport to the cruise port. The airport is located only about 9 miles from the San Juan Cruise Terminal. 

Getting from the San Juan International Airport to Your Puerto Rico Cruise 

The fastest and most convenient way to get to the San Juan Cruise Port from the airport is by Uber, Lyft or taxi. The ride will take less than an hour. 

Recommendation: Whenever your family is taking an inclusive Caribbean cruise from a distant cruise terminal, it is best to get near the port the day before you sail.

Plan to stay at a hotel near your cruise departure port to ensure that you will not miss your cruise due to a flight delay or some other mishap.

You can trust TripAdvisor to help you find hotels near the San Juan Cruise Port and to give your reviews and rates.

How To Book
Puerto Rico Cruises

Booking a cruise ship vacation from Puerto Rico or one that includes the San Juan port of call is easy.

If you have a Travel Agent, call that person. If you don't, use the CruiseDirect search box at the bottom of this page to find your cruise.

Or, you may visit our booking website, Petes Travel Center (PetesTravel.com) to book.

Finally, you may call the cruise line directly to book a cruise from Puerto Rico or one that makes a call in San Juan.

The great availability of Puerto Rico cruises, whether originating from San Juan or some other U.S. Caribbean cruise port, testifies to the fact that cruising out of San Juan and enjoying the beauty of Old San Juan and its surroundings is high on many people's cruising agenda.

I trust that your family will seize the opportunity to enjoy one of many Puerto Rico cruises.

By the way, I have a friend and his wife who sailed out of Puerto Rico last year and they loved it. They drove to Tampa, Florida, (from Marietta, Georgia) to catch a flight (it was cheaper to fly from Tampa than from Atlanta) to San Juan.

However, that did not put a damper on their 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise. My friend's wife told me that she "enjoyed every minute of it."

I know that your family will also enjoy its Puerto Rico cruise.
