United First Class Meal from Houston To San Juan.

Ok, as promised, here is a review of our United first class meal and flights to and from San Juan.  When we booked our cruise about a month from our sailing date, we immediately booked flights to San Juan.  Thankfully, the best deal for a flight, after some online searching, was through United.
