Grand Turk
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Grand Turk we just rolled off the ship and went to Jack’s Shack for a relaxing beach day. Food and drinks are good, but prepare yourself for a long wait on the food. WAY better pricing than Margaritaville.

La Romana (Casa de Campo)
Saona Island Rating: Not Rated

La Romana D.R. we booked through Seavis tours. The BEST day of our trip. The $60 they charge is a BARGAIN for what they provide. Taxi from La Romana to Bayahibe, the speedboat to Saona Island (stopping to check out a few things along the way and learn a little bit about the DR), gorgeous beach, tasty and plentiful lunch, FREE DRINKS all day, trip to the Piscina Natural to find some sea stars and wade in gorgeous water, yummy poundcake and pineapple for dessert (and more free drinks). I cannot recommend them highly enough. We’d definitely go back to Bayahibe for a land vacation.

Curacao we had odd port times, 2-11 p.m. Given the fact that although we’re beach bums, it was a heck of a ride and hassle to get to a beach for such a limited amount of time, we took a break from the rays and just explored on our own. Rif Fort is run and provides some good photo ops. The floating bridge is pretty cool and shopping in the Punda offers a variety of goods. We made pit stops here and there along the way for some beverages and the prices were decent. We were back onboard by 5 or so, grabbed some lunch, put our swimsuits on and used the rest of the evening to swim and enjoy the ship.

Aruba was gorgeous. We cabbed it to De Palm Beach. Great vibe, friendly locals, loads of amenities, not too crowded. We’d totally go back there for a land vacation as well.
