Island Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Best of Aruba Tour ($39.75 ea through Celebrity) -- Pretty good, but not as advertised; did not go to gardens or advertised substitute (aloe factory); driver did narrating, which limited ability to respond to questions.

St. Thomas
Island Tour Rating: 1.0 out of 5+
St John Island tour ($59.75 ea through Celebrity) -- Water taxi to St John was way crowded (standing room only) and over rough water (several people got sea sick). The island taxi was a pickup truck with five rows of seats that each sat five across; again we were packed like sardines! Driver was isolated from tour participants, and narrated from cab (little interaction with driver). Our driver was arrogant and demanding. We reported this tour to the Celebrity Excursions Desk, and would not recommend it to anyone. Too bad, because St John has some of the prettiest beaches in the Caribbean.
