Travel Tuesday ~ Aruba

Aruba was our first stop on our cruise out of San Juan in 2009 and the stop we were looking forward to the most on the trip.

We were super excited when we woke up that morning and enjoyed breakfast out on our balcony (word of advice.. room service is always free on a cruise so order your breakfast to be delivered as your wake up call and enjoy out on your balcony or in your room instead of going up to the overcrowded buffet). We then disembarked and met up with our excursion which was snorkeling over at an actual ship wreck and a boat party back.

My favorite part (other than the unlimited rum punch of course!) was the little slide we went down to enter the water and go snorkeling.

After our excursion we took a cab over to Moomba Beach and had lunch out on the beach and continued swimming and enjoying fruity cocktails.

Then we made our way back into town and did some shopping and stopped at Senor Frogs for one more drink before getting back on the ship. The next day we stopped in Curacao....

  1. i love that slide!!! that looks like such a blast!!

  2. Great travel tip about ordering room service instead of going to the buffet. I've never been on a cruise and didn't realize that room service is free!

    The slide looks really fun!
