We were avid cruisers, and had cruised for 15 years. Several friends had been to Aruba and said that it was a nice island to visit, so we were looking for a cruise that stopped in Aruba. Nothing seemed to work with our schedule, so we decided to make a trip to Aruba. We left home 3 days late, due to a snowstorm, and arrived in beautiful, sunny Aruba that afternoon. We stayed at Divi Golf. That night at dinner, while sitting outdoors, enjoying the warm breeze, my husband said that he didn't want to leave at the end of the week because we had lost part of our vacation. We found a room for 4 additional nights at Manchebo, and knew that we were hooked. We've been coming to Aruba for the last seven years, and have only gone on two cruises during that time. Every time we think about doing something else, we always decide to go back to Aruba instead. Our trips have varied from 9 days to two weeks. This year, we are staying for three weeks.
