Default How Far to Dock from Airport in San Juan?

I was just wondering how far it is from the airport in San Juan to the dock. We are flying in the night before, and going to stay close to the dock, but wanted to know how far it is. I'm assuming we will need a taxi, or maybe the hotel will have a shuttle???? Also, it says the ship does not sail until 10 pm...... what time do you think we can start boarding?


Thanks,
Erin


Ohhh, we are leaving on the Carnival Destiny.

Yep, definately need a taxi. When you fly in, if you are on a window seat on the left side of the plane, you'll pass the cruise ship docks on final, but you are still pretty high up.

However, its about a good 20 minute ride or so to the docks. So a taxi is a must.

We were on Destiny 4/16. We were able to get on board around 1.30. By the way we had a fantastic cruise, you'll have a great time.

He Eaky,
It seems like it is about noon when you board-maybe 1. If you arrive a little later, like 4, I think the line is shorter. Or even 6 then breeze right through. I like to arrive early and start enjoying the buffet.

Default dock to airport

eaky77, if you're flying in the day before let me suggest that you stay
at the sheraton in old san juan as it is right accross the street from the pier. you can walk right to the ship from the hotel with your carryons and the hotel will deliver your luggage for you if you want.never got a better nites sleep in a hotel than I did there, great beds. you will need a taxi from the airport to the hotel and there's a senor frogs right behind the hotel. have a great cruise as the destiny is a great ship with a great itinerary.
