Default Late arrival in port......:(:(

I am arriving in San Juan, at 4:30 in the afternoon.This unusual time does not allow sufficient time to get off , and do anything, before I would have to reboard for early seating..Lets say we get off after dinner, something I doubt my husband will want to do..what are your suggestions on what to do, if I twist his arm...Since the casino onboard will be closed, we could go there, but we are not big gamblers at all..so that seems like a waste..walking around I would guess is iffy..Do they keep the shops open late, for late arriving ships? I have always arrived in SJ in the morning, so this is throwing me off bigtime. And I think after typing all this, I pretty much know the answer.

Last time we had the same scenario in San Juan. We had an early dinner at 4:00 just before the ship docked. We went ashore from the lido restaurant and the DW was able to shop for 3 hours. Then we went to the flamingo show at 9. It worked out well for us.

Sea Ya,
If a grin is transmittable,
and laughing is contagious,
here’s hoping for an epidemic!

We have a similar arrival time this fall on our Thanksgiving Cruise. We are going to check-in and then go into Old San Juan and have dinner at our favorite tapas restaurant
there. It's an incredible restaurant with far better food and service than any cruise ship.

If you're interested, the name of the restaurant is "Baru." I cannot say enough good things about it.

But I'm one that tires quickly of cruise line food so we eat ashore whenever we can, especially if we're in port during the evening hours. I love eating dinner when in exotic and semi exotic places because the experience can be so unique.
