After breakfast at the Hyatt Place Hotel this morning, about 10 am we ubered to the Pan American pier (it’s the one that isn’t in old town where cruise ships typically dock when on a port call). We dropped our luggage, checked in and got our key cards-there were maybe 10 other people doing the same and at least 30 agents waiting to go to work.
We then ubered to Old Town San Juan with the intent of taking the free tourist trolley. Unfortunately it was out of service but they had a golf cart replacing it! We rode almost one loop and stopped and walked along the base of the city fortifications through the flower and sculpture garden to the beautiful fountain on the waterfront. While there, Silver Seas Yacht Club Silver Spirit made her way to the pier.
We left downtown around noon, and headed back to the ship. There were a few more folks checking in but the guests were still greatly outnumbered by the clerks waiting to go to work!
The Restaurant wasn’t open for lunch today so we headed to the World Cafe (buffet) for lunch. We were greeted there with a glass of bubbly to welcome us onboard.
Mike and I ate a light salad and had some grilled to order shrim…ahem….prawns. Lois however wanted to try it all! 😂
About 1:40, they announced everyone’s rooms were ready so we did a tour of the upper public levels of the ship (pool, wintergarten, Explorer’s Lounge) as we headed towards the bow. We then went to our respective rooms and unpacked. Mike and I are finished and Lois is “almost”. Once she finishes, we will go explore the public areas on Decks 1 and 2 before the muster drill at 5.
