My Caribbean Holiday part 1

My Caribbean Holiday part 1

Counting down to my cruise next week I am excited to visit somewhere new, have a little bit of winter sun and try a new cruise line

After so many of our customers have recommended Norwegian cruise lines and hearing so many good reports I’m taking the plunge and giving them a try

We have a night beforehand staying at La Concha beach resort in the Condado area, a 5* deluxe resort situated right on the beach. A perfect way to begin our holiday and situated equal distance from the airport and Old Town its the ideal combination of making the most of what San Juan has to offer.

The city appears to me in 2 halves, Old town San Juan, which is the main city center with the port, narrow cobbled streets, colourful old buildings, art and Latin life. Condado is located about a 10 minute drive from the old town, this is a beach front promenade area and strikes me as being more touristy, with an abundance of shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and casinos

It will be interesting to see how the island has recovered from the aftermath of the recent hurricanes, from reading it seems that most of the large hotels are almost running as normal now with only a handful still remaining closed.

San Juan is the Capital city on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, it is both an initial embarking port and one of the most popular ports of call for many cruise itineraries. Visiting San Juan offers something for everyone, the long golden beaches, colourful Spanish colonial buildings and La Fortaleza, a huge fortress overlooking the blue ocean, and of course it is the home of rum and Pina coladas so a little sampling will be taking place and a visit to the Barcadi distilery

Hi I’m Marcia and I’m here to share all things on cruise and travel. Holidays are my life and I love to share my experiences and hear of others. I’ve worked in travel for almost 10 years now, and still love helping people find their dream holiday. As you may know if you’ve reads my previous blogs I have a little passion for Norway and the hunt for the Aurora Borealis, I blame it all on my mother, what started out as her dream has now become a passion for us both and once was never enough. Italy is another of my favourite countries, I’ve never had a bad trip there, in fact I don’t think there’s anywhere I’ve been to that I haven’t enjoyed, and I’ve been travelling since I was a baby, living in India for the first year of my life, not that I can remember that of course. My motto is enjoy yourself your on holiday and make the best of every opportunity, and once it’s over look forward to your next one, which is where we come in
