Victory check in
How early are they letting people check in on Victory in San Juan?

Are they letting you in before 12 noon? What is the earliest they let you go to your room?

Kona, Sorry no one has responded to your post yet but I'm sure there will be someone who has recently been on the Victory respond. I personally have sailed the Victory and have sailed from San Juan many times, although it's been a few years since I was there. But to be specific about a certain check in time is a little hard to do.
First of all, the ship has to be cleared by Customs and Immigration, which can, at times due to a variety of reasons, take longer than others and there's not a set rule-- when the ship docks, the officials are in charge and the Cruise Line simply has to abide by the officials whims.
Normally you should be aboard by 11:30 or 12 but don't take that as gospel-- sometimes a little earlier, maybe sometimes a little later. The cabins are normally ready by around 1 p.m. If you get aboard by around 11-11:30 or so, just head for the buffet and have a leisurely lunch and explore a bit and by then the cabins should be ready.
I would think the above would be a general guideline but hopefully someone who has recently sailed from S.J. will be of more help.
What time does your flight get into S. J.?
