I am doing a 7 day southern caribbean on Adv. of the seas on Nov. 2nd, 2008. It stops in St. Thomas, St. Martin, Aruba, and curacao, with a departure from San Juan puerto rico. This is my first cruise so I don't know much about it, but I'm sure it will be great!!!

If checking their website and calling them to check to see if Aruba is on any itinerary doesn't find a sailing meeting your specifications, you'll have to sail another line that does make a stop at Aruba.

sounds like you will have to choose another cruise line if you really want to go to Aruba. Royal Caribbean, Princess, Holland American, Celebrity all sail to Aruba

Aruba is a must see...especially Palm Beach. I've been to Aruba three times, 1st time in 2001 on Carnival Destiny, 2nd on RC Adventure of the Seas and last October on Crown Princess. Aruba seems to get better each and every time we visit. If you like to parasail Aruba is a great island to do that on.

ENJOY!

Carnival no longer goes to Aruba it is to expensive for them to dock the ship I heard. So you will have to take another cruiseline if you want to go to Aruba
