Toured the island via bus. Saw the good and not so good of Aruba. Beach was beautiful. The port time was short and we spent an hour of the beach. In general got an overview of the island.

Aruba - Natural Wonders - If you’re handicapped, don’t let them stick you in the first seat on the right. Less leg room, and I jarred my leg each time I climbed into the seat. Great view of the Butterfly Farm, very hot inside the farm. Much welcome punch in the gift shop. Natural bridge site was disappointing. But surprised how many people walked over the top of the remaining natural bridge seeing all the debris of the larger collapsed bridge! Visited a very well preserved, and the rock formation. Only one bathroom (Butterfly Farm) on entire tour, because the bathroom at the rock formation was locked. Butterfly Farm had a ramp (though rather steep with NO handrail) for disabled. Read Less

We got off the ship and paid $20 per person for an island tour and a drop off at the beach. Since our ship did not get to Aruba until 1 pm, the usual beach, Baby Beach, was replaced with a beach closer to the port. The tour itself was fine. Aruba reminds me of Grand Turk. There really is not that much to see. I was surprised by all the cactus. Our driver explained that it is really dry in Aruba so not many things will grow there. We stopped at the Rock Formations and the Lighthouse and then the driver dropped us off at De Palm Pier for about an hour at the beach before it got dark. We were charged $3.50/chair for beach chairs. The tour felt long but the driver was funny and knew a lot about the island. He picked us up from the beach and took us back to the port. Read Less

Very comfortable bus with good air conditioning. The first two stops were outstanding. The third, a church, was interesting. The lighthouse was a waste of time. Spent 15 minutes there with nothing to do but stand outside at look at it. Our tour guide was amiable and knowledgeable. Once again, very, very warm. Take lots of water to drink. Read Less

Then he dropped us off at Palm Beach for several hours. We were able to rent 2 loungers and shade for just $20. There's a bar sticking out into the water where we had really great burgers for lunch. Beautiful sand and water, we want to go back. Read Less
