Seeing that San Juan Puerto Rico is the Golden Princess embarkation port, this could have a huge impact on passengers that have arranged for airfare to San Juan.
I just heard from some people who live in Puerto Rico and they are saying that the local news station is reporting the GOLDEN PRINCESS will not dock in Puerto Rico beginning in November 2004. I called Princess today and they have no idea about the situation. It was reported that the Port Charges/Gov't Fees keep going up for Puerto Rico, therefore Princess is getting tired of the prices and is threatening to (or possibly might have already) removed ships from the San Juan Puerto Rico itinerary.
This is all based on a news report coming out of San Juan, so I cannot provide any factual resource. Anyone else in Puerto Rico see/hear about this?
