Just to add in my two cents, San Juan in general, regardless of ship, will always have Puerto Ricans sailing. It's not all you'll see, but they'll constitute enough of the people to take notice.

Yeah, Bri ...my family wants to do southern too.. and most ships sail out of peurto rico. so did the ones on board form their own cliques?

lol when i went on the cruise to the med, there were a huge chunk of peurto ricans..but they like all kept to themselves mostly.

yea they pretty much just flocked together. it was hard on the first day to meet people just cuz i couldnt tell who spoke english or not.. so i pretty much said anyone with brown hair did not.. cuz that's pretty much how it went.

they didnt speak any english and it was really annoying when you tried to say something to them. and they were pretty rude to all of us. whenever we tried to hang out anywhere, there were only 10 of us that spoke english pretty much.. outnumbered by the 100s. literally no joke! but yea whenever we tried to hang out anywhere they would like find our spot and completely take over by blasting there music louder than ours or like sitting near us talking in loud spanish to each other. they all seemed a little more.. i dont know. they danced really nasty in the club. i got like sick looking at them. and they would make out like in front of the world. it was just odd. i dont know. it bugged me.

The language barrier makes it tough. I'm kind of thankful I am bilingual. It helps a lot.

You got the wrong impression. There will be more than enough english speakers onboard, but just more spanish speakers than one is used to. Be warned though, cliques form super fast, especially in these types of cruises.

mmerai, im goin on this same cruise except when the victory replaces the destiny. i love to party in 02 and i know from even leaving from florida there are alot of spanish speakin people. and i hate when sompthing so gay like a language barrier makes a cruise that you payed good money for suck! my dad said he was going to order rosetta stone thing for us to learn for our next cruise and i was wondering if this is acurate spanish fo this type of cruise or what but me and my freind are going and my cousins too and i for my cousins this is there first krooz so i want them to get the full experence with a "good croud" so any tols for learing the language would help!

if you are really going to order rosetta stone for a cruise, then maybe you should think of other vacation options. besides, if you think there is going to be that much of a barrier (which there wont be), then why don't you sail from somewhere mutual like texas, new york, or california??

san juan is the only port that has the ship we want to go on that does 7 night southern and i have to learn it for school anyway so i just thought it would be a cool thing to do. i mean there are alot of people my age that speak it and it is the only thing they speak. also it is a helpful tool on some of the islands that i have traveled to.

I'll be on the destiny the week of the 24th, so I assume that will be after you. It's my 18 bday present, belated, and I'm excited, except it will be with my mom. Love her, but she's not exactly the party type. when r u going? I really wish I had spent fall semester in spain instead of france now, because french isn't going to do me much good with the puerto ricans. maybe ill learn a few phrases.
