Free Airfare? The Southern route, absolutely! I wouldn't cruise out of anywhere else if the airfare to San Juan were cheaper. The sea is calmer, the islands are more tropical and varied, and just about every one has beautiful beachs and many exciting things to do. Especially if you are thinking of going down ahead of time for a few days, San Juan is also a Caribbean port, so you'll be starting your vacation early. If you possibly can stay one night post-cruise, I would recommend that also because the airport gets really overwhelmed on Sundays when many ships return to port and all those people are trying to fly home. I have run into this at other port cities also, so if its possible to stay, I do that now. It's just a more relaxing way to end a vacation. Enjoy your first cruise...I think you will get just as addicted as we are. Happy sails...........
