Aruba Sunset Cruise Excursion Reviews

A sunset cruise is the perfect way to top off an evening in Aruba. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as the sun sets and enjoy a traditional Aruban meal surrounded by water.
The boat was very relaxing, small group and everyone gets a lounger, drinks are included.

I took away a star as the Captain had some very poor jokes with some kids on the boat and they also did not respect some of the nature Read Less

Booked this through Celebrity and would not recommend this excursion. Celebrity used Pelican Adventures. The crew did not provide any safety information so had their been a problem - 78 people had no idea where life jackets were or how to exit the vessel. Also one of the crew was completely unprofessional - trying to tell jokes and interrupting the fun the passengers wanted to have. The excursion was advertised and purchased a "Cocktail Sunset Sail" but the cocktail was nothing more than completely watered down fake rum. I suggest safety concerns in that none of the bottles had sealed lids so who knows what products were in the "rum". Passengers had 5-10 drinks with no alcohol effect at all. DO NOT BOOK THIS EXCURSION Read Less

We took a snorkeling/sunset cruise on the Black Pearl. I highly recommend it. It was three hours round trip from the dock and stopped at two snorkeling spots. The most appealing thing to me about this particular company and boat is that they limit the number of guests to 24, and there are padded loungers on deck for everyone, situated in pairs. It was lazy and loungy and nobody was in a hurry. There was an open bar with quick service from the staff of four, and there was no pressure to snorkel for a long time (or at all). It was the opposite of a party boat. So relaxing and fun. Just what I needed! After the second snorkeling stop, the crew passed out cheese sandwiches, more drinks, and we bobbed in the water watching the sun get lower in the horizon. When the sun started to set, the boat slowly made its way back to the dock, pulling in just as the last bit of sun disappeared on the horizon. Read Less

The Black Pearl sunset cruise was super chill and relaxing. Not a hyped up booze cruise. Snorkeled at 2 spots before sunset. Delicious cocktails and cheese sandwiches included!

The boat was big and interesting. The tour is down Eagle Beach which is lovely to see and hear about. They are replacing the old refinery with a high end hotel. That improves the view.

Took the sunset cruise the day we pulled into port. The ship was nice, the crew was friendly and the drinks were cold. And the sunset was beautiful! The next day we took a taxi to the beach by the hotels where we were charged $10.00 per chair for some very old chairs and $25.00 for an umbrella that is mandatory considering the sun. The water was warm but full of seaweed. We were charged $1.00 each time we needed to use the restroom. Will try going to Baby Beach at the other end of the Island if we visit again. Read Less
