Last December we just hit Carlos and Charlies which is only blocks from the dock. In fact, you can hear the partying from C&C's while you are on board. It was a great time and I can't imagine going to a better party spot.

As for Grand Cayman, there aren't any street vendors, and pushy cab drivers, so you can take a tour on your own, and it most likely will cost much less than the cruise line's price. You should be able to find a good tour company on the Web. The two best attractions on Grand Cayman are probably 7-Mile Beach, and Stingray City. You should be able to do either of them on your own just fine.

Just don't try that in Jamaica, though........

As for Curacao, the Seaquarium is great, and the Seaquarium Beach is wonder, and both of them you can arrange for yourself.

On Aruba, Carlos & Charlies is kinda wild but fun! Try Iguana Joes for dinner -- very large entrees, but very tasty! It's just off the dock past Carlos & Charlies.

Have fun,

I found this posting on an Adventure review:

When we are in Aruba the ship doesn't depart until 1am. Therefore there are
some evening excursions. Take a look at this account I found. Looks like
one for the Kon Tiki crowd! Check out the website too.

"We didn't go to dinner (Caribbean Colors) this night because of our planned
excursion for the night...We did the KuKu Kunuku Party Bus. To find out
more -
http://www.arubaadventures.com/kukookunuku/ .

It is a hand painted...one of a kind...1957 Chevy Bus that sat about 40
people. You shook your provided maracas as they played very loud dance music
and taught you dances. First, they bring you to Arashi Beach overlooking the
lighthouse and golf course for a champagne toast and some rules, guidelines
and sales pitches (you can buy t-shirts, leis and CDs). Then we went to the
Silvia Lee Residence for dinner. We received a flyer that stated that Mr.
Atan Lee has been working with the government for thirty years, and has for
the last sixteen years held the position of Chief Protocol for Aruba. He is
the organizer of many social events, franchise holder for the Miss Universe
pageant and organizer of Miss Aruba pageant. Mrs. Lee has been an employee
at the ABN Amro Bank for 37 years, and is currently working in the human
resources department.
The backyard was set up with tables and tiki torches. Dinner was fantastic!
Steak and chicken with rice and salad. The drink special for the night was
"Sex on the Bus". Very yummy and only $2.00 at the house. I talked to the
owner and asked him why he invites strangers in his house? He said, it
started off as a joke at first and then progressed from there. He does it
every night except for Sunday! We then went to three local bars.
We got a pass for each bar that allowed us to have the first drink for free.
The first bar was the Laguna Bar. It was basically a deck with no railings!
You could easily fall in the water. We were allowed to dance on the bar! At
the next bar (don't remember the name of it) we were taught the Bacardi
Dance...we will sing Bacardi, yellow, limon, Coca-Cola for months to come!
Our bus driver, Hyme, was a cutie! Raymond, the other bus driver, was a very
large man! We were all dancing and having a blast! Lastly we went to Carlos
& Charlie's which is an island favorite. It was very crowded! Don't know how
we got ourselves in. They were having a "best butt" contest on stage. One of
the guys was from our ship!! It was pretty funny! We were standing on the
chairs and tables in the back watching, yelling and cheering!
We went to the Beach Party poolside when we returned to the ship. "

Don't spend the extra $ on the tour...just hit Carlos & Charlies FUN!!
There is also a smaller bar (calmer with more locals) near the port. I believe it's called the corral or the round up (???) It's painted like a cow, there is a dinosaur on the roof, and a large porch. It's right on the water with a great view of the ship.
