Default Aruba

We will be going to Aruba in 6 weeks with Princess Cruise. Considering going on the "Passport To Paradise At De Palm Island" excursion. Has anyone taken part in this? Is it really a "Paradise"?

DePalm Island is very nice. Nice beach, ok snorkelling, water toys and food available.
This trip can be fun.
If you want to do Aruba a bit cheaper take a bus out to the Palm Beach area (between Aruba Grand and Holiday Inn . Beach is wide and lovely and very public. There are facilities at the piers run by the three major tour companies De Palm, Red Sail and Pelican) for bathroom, food, drink etc. Plenty of vendors along the beach offer chair and water toy rentals and water sports opportunities.

Aruba is Beautiful! We rented jeeps and toured the island. I think we drove where no man has gone before . The natural bridge is beautiful, the little beach alcoves.
Have a great time ehatever you do

We rented a Jeep right at the pier for $80 for the day. Navagating is easy and like the above poster you will see the island like no excursion will ever offer. If you do that make sure you check out "CONCHI" or the "Natural Pool". You will still have plenty of time to park your Jeep and check out Palm Beach on your own.

Have a great time.
