At Disney Cruise Line, we are always looking to add new and exciting destinations to create the variety of itineraries our guests love.
Starting on the November 3rd sailing, the Disney Fantasy will, for the first time, visit the historic capital of Puerto Rico, San Juan, during its 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruises. With so many places to explore, San Juan boasts history with its iconic “Old San Juan,” a World Heritage Site, and adventure with “El Yunque,” the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Parks Service.
Here are some great Port Adventures for your entire family to enjoy from San Juan:
Castillo San Cristobal, a World Heritage Site – featuring Youth Activity – Families will explore San Cristobal Castle together before kids get a chance to be Little Masons and learn about the materials used to construct old fortifications. The kids are joined by Disney Cruise Line Youth Counselors, giving parents free time to explore nearby sites.
Rainforest Nature Walk and Waterfall Adventure – Follow expert nature interpreter guides on a nature walk through El Yunque National Forest, the only tropical rainforest in the U.S. National Forest system. Discover its beautiful flora and fauna before relaxing at a majestic waterfall.
Hands-On Criollo Cooking Demonstration – Learn about traditional Puerto Rican foods, including popular dishes like plantains, meats and local spices. You’ll savor the homemade meal you prepare during this hands-on cooking experience!
Whatever you choose to do in San Juan, the city will delight you with its historic charm, hospitality, adventure and delicious cuisine. Make sure to allow time for a stroll through the beautiful streets and taste some of the local dishes – like plantains. My favorite is the “mofongo!”
As always, when the ship’s in port, venture ashore!
