    Unfortunately Royal Caribbean has buckled and will allow passengers who have not been vaccinated. This will bear watching.

    Those disembarking in Aruba from cruise ships will still fall under the Aruba rules of needing to be tested, right? Just like those of us flying into Aruba....

    no I believe they do not.
    I read and I don't know where........that visitors to the island staying less than 24 hrs are exempt.

    if I can find the source I will put it here.

    Andrea, I read the same thing....might have been on this site that lists requirements. Would have been way back when they started the testing to enter protocol.
    Again, cruise industry does not contribute a high percentage to the Aruba economy (according to a publication by an economist). I hope Aruba examines this very carefully. Tourists have choices now and if the covid numbers rise in Aruba (even into the 20 or 30 new cases a day) people are apt to go elsewhere. That number of cases may indicate community spread...why take a chance?

    Couldn't say it better! And believe I've been watching numbers like crazy and sadly if they get out of hand I'll likely cancel July trip

    So glad to see no restrictions and at least allowing cruise tourists to come back without testing. Can't wait till the US & Aruba testing requirement goes away. I was there in February with 5 other people and the testing was very easy in Aruba, ( not so much in the US), but at the same time very stressful as there was much uncertainty if you tested positive before leaving or to get back.
    I would have been back at least twice since for long weekends were it not for the testing issues. With the vaccination rates being up and better treatment options for patients I personally feel it's time to fully open, but that's just me.

    Ditto from me! Welcome to the Forum, Arubadog! I selfishly agree with you on the testing. I'm really hoping it's waived before my trip in August (but also don't want Aruba to compromise its safety just because it would make things easier!).
