just returned from san juan, st. thomas, and tortola. my opinion is you will not miss anything by not going to san juan. the only real interesting site we saw there was the one old fort and cemetary right on the shore and a couple of interesting looking government buildings. overall the scenery was nothing to write home about. hope this helps.

That is why I am going on the Valor, again, I like the Baharmers so much better then SanJaun, You are not going to be sorry.
The Atlantis is so much nicer to walk around, then go over to the straw market, this time we are going to the beach. Their will be a lot of people on this board that will say otherwise, but I am like you and will not find any fault I make the best of any situation.
Good luck I will be looking for you to help me with the Western side.
Valor again Yahoo!
Excellent choice Luanne! You'll really like "Valor", and as far as San Juan, it'll still be there the next time you cruise. IMO you'll enjoy Nassau more than San Juan, with the Atlantis and Paradise Island. I think it's perhaps a bit safer in Nassau as well, but that's just my opinion. (Every time we've been to San Juan, the ship always warns the pax to be careful, and stay in a group, and stay on the main streets etc.)
