    Flights to San Juan Dec 2011

    Does anyone know about flights from London to San Juan this December. We are booked on the Caribbean Princess boarding in San Juan. We cannot get any information from Princess regarding when flight will depart or whether from Heathrow or Gatwick. We need to book hotel/parking. Any information would be apprieciated.

    Hi I can't answer your question but we booked to sail on Sea Princess and the flight information was e-mailed to me about 4 months before departure. I assume that you know that the you will require an valid ESTA (it's a USA territory), if you need to apply be careful when applying online, some sites will change an additional fee - use the official site

    The route is almost certain to have a plane change on the US mainland and it could be anywhere, it will depend solely on which carrier offers Princess the lowest cost "global" deal for air travel and will have little relevance to your convenience. Again there is a near certainty that you will have an overnight hotel somewhere en-route, hopefully this could be San Juan. SJ is a beautiful historic town, which you would otherwise miss if you were boarding on day of arrival, we arranged a couple of days pre cruise and really enjoyed our visit...Richard B

    When we flew to San Juan to join an RCI ship a couple of years ago,we had to change in Atlanta(very smooth and quick),What surprised us most was to discover that San Juan is a great holiday destination(mainly for Americans),which we knew nothing about,as it doesn't seem to be marketed in the UK.Enjoy!

    Thanks for this, we will wait and see what happens, we have been told we could have to fly via Madrid and then change for direct Iberia flight to San Juan. Total travel time between 13 & 17 1/2 hours which we do not want.

    One thing I do remember is that we boarded the ship at 1.00pm. and it was only by using some detective work and a few dollars,that we got our luggage by 8.00pm. The shore staff were useless/idle B......s! Stan

    It is a US territory.. Puerto Ricans are US Citizens.
    I don't think there are any direct flights from the UK to Puerto Rico so it might not be as convenient as other Caribbean destinations.

    Virgin fly to San Juan with a one hour stop over in Antigua. A friend who did a cruise and stay on Caribbean Princess out of San Juan was on this flight.
