Carnival Glory Day Five (San Juan, PR)

So we arrived in San Juan at 7AM this morning. San Juan is an amazing city. Last time here I did a bus tour of the city and didn't have time to explore the forts that guarded the city for five hundred years. My goal for the day was to do just that. Three blocks south of the port is this towering stone building that seems to be about twelve stories high. Come to find out it three levels, HUGE levels. Stone wall tunnels and 45 degree ramps with no handrails to go from one level to the next. I also don't know who did the design but I think if your on level two and need to go to level three you should not need to go down to one, but they did. My legs are still burning from all the walking today but it was fun.

I was back on the ship early and spent some quality time with the parental units. We sat on the Lido and played cards.

Dinner was lovely, Oysters Rockefeller, Caesar Salad, and filet minion. That was followed up by a chocolate raspberry cake.

I am not looking forward to returning because that will mean my diet has to resume and I am expecting a full blow detox from sugar and fatty foods. I am interested to see if I gained weight on this trip because my level of activity has been much more than when I am home.

I am over tired and cant think up anything else to say about today, so there. Heres hoping all your faces have smiles.


  1. Jealous, I am. I ♥ San Juan... And chocolate raspberry cake... And Lido Deck.. And your parents.

    You're on a cruise. Don't think about diets and coming home right now. It will happen all too soon as it is!

    The End.

    Big hugs xoxo

  2. It's all good! Just have F.U.N., after all, you are on a FunShip!

    Big hugs, honey...

  3. San Juan is a wonderful port. We loved walking around the old City and up to the Fort.
