My husband and I went on a seven day cruise to the southern caribbean. The cruise left out of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and went to four different islands. We traveled on the Adventure of the Seas, which is a great ship, and I would recommend it to everyone. The southern caribbean cruise was great also, although I do not recommend departing from San Juan. For one thing it is very expensive to fly there, but worse than that you could get stuck there, like we did. On the last morning of the cruise we were waited to get off the ship to head to the airport, and there was an annoucement that the dock workers had gone on strike, and we couldn't leave the ship. It was caotic, and to make a long story short we missed our flight, and had to spend $300 on a hotel room (we were reimbursed because we had insurance). Apparently this happens quite often, and the cruise ships should really stop going there, until it is resolved. Next time we cruise we will probably leave out of a port closer to home.
