The wife and I are taking a cruise for our 25th anniversary in February 2015. One of the ports is San Juan, Puerto Rico. Can you tell me if there is some good shopping within walking distance of the dock? Thanks in advance for any advice.

If you are docking in Old San Juan, yes, you'll find shops and restaurants within walking distance. There are also 2 old forts you can visit. They do have a trolley that goes through town if you happen to find that too.
Old San Juan has all those "port shops" that are found throughout the Caribbean. It seemed to me that they also had more charming local shops. Last time there the DW and I almost bought a beautiful carved chest.
