    What days are the Cruise Ships docked?

    Just wondering if anyone knows when the cruise ships dock in Aruba? I anticipate the excursions will be very crowded on the days that the ships are docked. Just hoping to book excursions on days where there are not tons of people. Thanks!

    When are you going? During the summer there is only like one cruise ship a week. Most head north to do other ports of call.
    The Ocean Dream is listed but its small and Aruba is its departure port so should not take up most of the local tour or downtown shop business.

    ---- Again in the summer only like 1 a week. And if you don't remember what day when you get to Aruba ask the tour desk person. They should know.

    I love the whole island, so it's hard to choose, but if I have to then I would say baby beach & the natural bridge area

    We just returned from Aruba on Saturday. There was a cruise ship (Ocean Queen...I think) docked there the entire time we were in Aruba (from 6/20 - 6/27). According to rumor, there were some cases of H1N1 on board the ship so they weren't being allowed to move. Not to worry...I don't think they were allowed to leave the ship at all. I say that to say this, if that ship is still docked there I doubt that another ship will be allowed in.

    @ Tom yes the Ocean Dream was the ship that was being held in port because of cases of H1N1 among some of the crew.

    Adventure of the Seas (Royal Carribean) arrives on port I believe on Tuesdays, and Ocean Dream (home port Aruba) Fridays. Like previous posts states not many cruise ships during the summer months and no effect for activitys or downtown.

    Really not much to worry about this time of year. RCCL's Adventure of the Seas only visits every OTHER week this time of year and there is an odd Princess sailing here and there.

    The ships begin calling more regularly beginning in October
