    ----- Actually some cruise ships have more and better watersports.
    Every port of call offers different watersports. You can go to the cruise ship Web Site and sign up for what you want to do. Most of the watersport activities will meet the cruise ship and off you go. You pay the cruise line and not the watersport. You can go online and sign up like a month or more before your cruise date and know for sure you have a reservation.
    We usually don't do much but if you want to be very active you can.

    I was thinking the same thing Tom. With all the cruises I have been on, I always arrive home needing another vacation. Arriving home from Aruba, we are always relaxed.

    Dh likes cruising but me and the kids prefer land, in particular Aruba. Getting a chair at the pool on days at sea makes getting a chair at the Surf Club seem like a breeze!!

    I also agree that a cruise does tend to be a little less relaxing than staying on land. Each day in port you feel the need to get off and explore. Overeating is also a problem, way too much food on a cruise.

    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Unfortunately this is very true. I am grateful for a dh who is an early riser.

    Aruba
    Now that we have seen most of the Caribbean, the ship has become our "destination" and we enjoy staying on the ship while the masses depart for a day ashore. We then have the pool to ourselves and peace and quiet. To us, the more ports the better!

    There IS a cruise ship that leaves does roundtrip Aruba - it is Ocean Dream by Pullmantur which is the Spanish arm of Royal Caribbean. According to my research (we're planning on going this summer) it is an older ship and is bilingual Spanish/English. It gets alot of Spanish tourists - early dinner is 8 p.m. and late dinner 10 or so!!! They say, on cruise critic, that it is a big party as the Spanish love to merengue and salsa. As I said, I'm going to book it as soon as I find the TA my husband knows. He is off Island right now and I have company. I'll fill you in when I learn more. Linda

    Thanks for the info Linda. Lisa is right I would like it pretty luxurious and big.
    But for others that read this, it is of course very useful information, and if there are no other options, I will not rule this one out of the questions either.

    Here is a link for anyone interested http://www.pullmanturcruises.com/EN/...198134553.html

    So thanks again.

    Carsten
