Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico has made a strides since last year’s hurricanes and is welcoming travelers with open arms. Since tourism dollars are a great way to help the continued recovery, 2018 is the year to catch a cruise to or from San Juan, including on the largest cruise ship in the world, our new Symphony of the Seas debuting this March.

Fittingly, some of the best sites were built to protect the city, like the Spanish Fort San Cristóbal or 16th-century Castillo San Felipe del Morro. The mix of old and new, which travelers find so alluring, is on display throughout cobblestone streets, and the food scene continues to thrive from food trucks to upscale spots with favorites like Mofongo, the fried plantain dish and famous pork recipes like pernil.

You can visit the island with five- and seven-night sailings aboard Adventure of the Seas until early May or when Symphony returns from Europe to sail weeklong Caribbean cruises starting in September.

Of all the New Year’s resolutions you can make, “traveling more” is probably your best bet for enrichment and unforgettable adventure. If that’s on your list for 2018, then your best bet to cover off multiple destinations is a cruise. You’ll be able to visit different countries, experience a wide range of activities—and you’ll only have to unpack once!

To jumpstart your travels, we’ve rounded up the best places to visit this year, whether they’ve made the list because of major events, newfound status or just because they’re a great value this year.

Here are the top spots to add to your list, what to see, and the best cruises to get you there.
