Carnival Dream Misses San Juan Port Call


The folks aboard the 9 nt. journey on Carnival’s Dream won’t be making the stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico today.

Apparently the life boats hang very low on the ship and the way the pier is set up, the life boats would hit the pier causing an issue in docking.

A passenger who was on the deck of the Dream said “when they built these piers years ago, they weren’t designed for these size ships.”

The ships captain tried to put the Dream at a couple other piers in the port but was unsuccessful.  The ship now sails onward to the Grand Turks.

The Carnival Dream is on its very first embarkation sailing out of Port Canaveral, Fla.,  and is set to return from its 9 night journey on Saturday, Dec. 12.

  1. wow. That certainly stinks for the passengers who were looking forward to touring the sites. I would be very disappointed.

  2. I wonder if they’ll be fixing the pier to accomodate the ship in the future. Any word on whether or not this port has been removed from future sailings for now?

  3. Yes we were disappointed but if they had tried to dock and damaged one of the life boats the cruise would have been over.San Juan was never on the Dreams itinerary,this was a one time deal,so it won’t be an issue again.
