    We do cruise a lot. Next cruise is in Jan 2016 (main reason I chose this cruise was for Aruba).. and a few times we were not able to port to an
    island due to weather. They only refund the port fee and taxes too.
    It is actually cheaper to do a land trip to Aruba vs a cruise. Was checking our prices (we booked already thank goodness) and the price for 3 adults in a ocean view for 11 days is $6800.00 over $4500 what we paid for

The condo is her stateroom with balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Aruba is the ship and she can eat in many different dining rooms, shop in many on board boutiques, take day trips to snorkel or sightsee and hit the casino frequently. I have to agree with her. It is definitely more relaxing on the good ship Aruba.
    Exactly why we cruise less and less and go to Aruba more and more

    I was on a Carnival Cruise many many years ago and that one day in port on a lovely island called Aruba....turned into a love affair that grows stronger every year !!!!
    I hate the thought of those folks not getting the same chance I got. I certainly understand the safety factor though, better safe than sorry.....
    Like Andrea said.....love those tradewinds....or not !!!!
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    We watched the ship coming in. Made it as far as the entrance to the channel and then turned away. Assumed at the time it was wind related
