Hi Gigman....Aruba is the best!!! It's actually my favorite island...happy to be returning this October. The best beach in Aruba is....Palm Beach...it has everything to offer! There are tons of hotels beach-front....water-sport facitilites right on the beach...I plan on parasailing when we are there. We even enjoyed a few cocktails at this bar that goes out in the water....you walk along a little pier to the water-bar. This beach has everything to offer a peson who loves the sand, water and beach!!! This beach is so large that it never feels crowded! Enjoy your cruise!

Has been quite a few years since we went to Aruba, but for snorkeling I remember we went to a place called Baby's Lagoon. It was next to an Exxon Refinery, which I believe is now closed. It was awesome for snorkeling - Lots of fish and crystal clear calm water. As I recall, it was inside of a circular reef. Hope its still there - it was public and we just walked down and waded in. We had our own snorkeling gear, but several of the couples with us rented in town.
