By far my favorite island. I’ve been here numerous times before but this was the first time via cruise ship. Did a resort for the day at RUI Palace Antilles, as I normally don’t spend much time in Palm Beach. Hotel was lovely, staff friendly and the beach beautiful. We had a wonderful day here. Since we were in port until 11pm after that we walked to the marina and over to Renaissance Aruba to see friends we have made over the years! Every time I am here I fall in love all over!!
By far this was one of my favorite ports EVER!

Went ashore and rented our own jeep for the day. $150 paid for the three of us to do our own off roading tour of the island. We hit Baby Beach, the caves in the National Park, off-roaded to the Natural Pools and then headed to the ruins of the gold mill and to the California Lighthouse. Got back to the ship about an hour before departure. An excellent way to spend the day.
The water here is indescribable it is so beautiful. If you are planning a water excursion, this is the place to do it. We did a catamaran sail and snorkel, and we were able to see amazing sea life and even a sunken ship. You can't go wrong with anything that involves water.

This is by far my favorite island I have been to! I would definitely return for a full vacation on the island. Everyone was so friendly, easy transportation, and awesome sight seeing!
Eagle Beach, white sand, beautiful aqua blue water, a shining hot sun and a cold beer. What more could you want in October?

I love everything about Aruba!!! We walked around and were able to see so much just by walking. We found a good restaurant to eat at and just walked the city. There is a casino and high end shopping as well. The starbucks has free wifi.
Aruba is a beautiful, desert like island with plenty of gorgeous coastline. We rented a private taxi that brought us all over the island (lighthouse, oldest church, wild donkeys, Casibari rock formations, and to Baby Beach which was absolutely gorgeous. Small, uncrowded and lagoon-like. The water at Baby Beach was crystal clear turquoise, warm and very shallow. You could walk out for a long, long time before it got deep. There is a restaurant/bar on the beach available for food and drinks. I wish we would have had longer to stay at this beach. It was gorgeous.
