Aruba - Last port of call, and our favorite. Beaches were way better than any of the other three stops, with perfect sand and no rocks. We took a 15 minute cab ride ($15 total each way for up to four passengers) from the pier to Palm Beach, where all the high rise resorts are located (Hyatt, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, etc.) Some people knock this area of Aruba as being overly-commercialized (it looks like Miami Beach) but who cares ? It's definitely not a nature preserve area, but there are a million things to do right on the beach. We negotiated an excursion with a local vendor, Dolphin Water Sports: three hour catamaran cruise, with two snorkeling stops (one a huge sunken German WW II U-boat and second a traditional coral reef in 6-10 feet of water), and a third stop on a sandbar to hunt for starfish. We got unlimited rum drinks all day a lunch of sandwiches and fresh fruit, all for $45 p/p. Great time, great customer services, and great value !

The sunset catamaran cruise was very relaxing and such a delightful way to view the shore! We enjoyed the music and dancing as well. Wonderful!

A fair experience which can be improved upon especially from the beach used perspective - this beach was overcrowded and not as clean as it should be.

The staff on the catamaran were very friendly. It was about a 45 minute ride to the snorkel site and back. They gave us they typical rum punch on the way back. The catamaran ride was the best part of this excursion.
