Do you offer late checkout? If yes, is there an additional charge? I'll be staying one night before boarding a cruise. The cruise does not leave until 8pm so I'll be exploring San Juan for a few hours prior to boarding.
Late checkout are available so long as the room is available. You have to check with the front desk. There is no extra charge. You can also leave your luggage in ourk locked storage area until you are ready to leave in the afternoon.
Since your cruise leaves at 8, I'm guessing your on RCCl and not Carnival, Carnival usually leaves at 10. When we cruised RCCl we left our luggage in the room and wandered around before going to port, when we cruised Carnival, we checked out at 11, went to the pier, even though they said no one would board until 1, we got right on the ship at noon, left our luggage in the room, then wandered the city until it was time to go. Nice thing about carnival is the pier being right in OSJ, avoids an extra taxi fare to OSJ
I don't know for sure if they offer late checkout but they do have a big room where they kept our luggage for us while we walked around before going to the port.
