Sometimes i wonder how many 1st timers go to Aruba because of someone like us giving them lots of details, or them seeing/hearing ads online or on tv/radio, or by suggestion of a travel agent, or by a brief cruise port of call visit?
My experience was way back in late 1970s or 1980........We were on a charter scuba tour out of JFK to Bonaire and Aruba was our first overnight and last overnight.
I was "hooked". However, my next few visits were by way of cruise ship.
How about you?
