Aruba was by far my favorite port on this cruise! The island was absolutely beautiful. When we got off the boat, there were several people offering us a "two hour tour". We decided that we would take one of these people up on their offer, which totaled $40, including the driver's tip.
We saw the highest point on the island, the island's main church, the California lighthouse, and also took a trip to the beach. Our tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot from him.
We were thrilled to be able to see so much of the island and get an overview of the culture (although my fiance would have liked to try iguana, which is apparently an island dish).
Overall, we loved Aruba. We have even talked about returning to the island and staying for a week later this year.
