Lvu... regional discounts are nothing new in cruising... they are done all the time by all the lines, on sailings from many ports, including San Juan (which last time I looked was very much part of America, with its residents being Citizens as well). Florida Resident rates are a classic example... and there are rates for many different states. Actually, today's Happy Hour program had super discounts on most sailings out of San Juan on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity, open to everyone.

You should ask your t/a to watch for these special rates for San Juan departures. They come up often. We actually have clients who live in San Juan and we frequently are able to beat the prices offered in San Juan... nothing unusual.

As Ernie and many others have indicated 'regional' discounts are not unusual and are not restricted to Puerto Rico. As with all ads highlighting low prices, the operative word is "from". Often you will find that few staterooms are available at the bargain rate, and the rate is only operative for limited sailings (usually during less desirable periods, ex: hurricane season etc.) Instead of looking for proof that others are somehow disadvantaging you and appearing extremely xenophobic and parochial, perhaps you should concentrate on more positive aspects of life. Of course if you firmly believe that residents of some other area are getting all the deals to your detriment, you could consider moving there to take advantage of these bargain rates. Somehow I don't think that solution would seem that appealing. ;-)

Hello, San Juan is America. Floridians also get some nice deals --you can always check local papers down here.

hcat: I believe that the original poster is aware of that fact, although he doesn't appear to be too thrilled about it.
