Went to Trinidad the next day. Did not get off ship. We were told that there were guides in the neighborhood near the dock that made sure that passengers did not walk into dangerous areas. Heard good things about the bus tour of downtown with the trip to Maracas beach.
Went to Aruba the next day. Took Pirate snorkel cruise. Rough weather made the snorkeling difficult. Everything closed because of New Year's day.
Next day we went to La Romana in the Dominican Republic. Obviously very poor. Did not leave ship due to foul weather but heard good reports of the Santa Domingo bus tour.
