There are rules, you see. You can’t go except on a special Visa. MSC has set up their excursions to qualify as Person-to-Person educational experiences. As long as you do 2 of their excursions, we can sort of do whatever all else and still have qualified.
We signed up for 3. Two today – day and evening, and one tomorrow before we sail away.
We have a brief discussion about changing our excursions. Should we skip the one today and get off the ship earlier if we can? Our excursion doesn’t leave until 1:30 – what time are we to arrive in port?
Scheduled arrival is 1pm. We are not going to do better than that.
We actually sail into the harbor a bit early, the old city drifting by us on one side, El Morro (Morro Castle) off the other side.
