Oranjestad, Aruba was our planned port but instead we are going to Willemstad, Curacao. So far we have not found any excursion that interests us. On the other hand Aruba had a SUBMARINE. No really, a real submarine we would have gone down over 100 feet down and traveled along reefs. Disappointing!
It is a very colorful city.
We walked in town through the touristy shops, across the floating bridge, past more shops and back to the ship. The result of our trip was buying a couple of shirts, some postcards, and a magnet of our travel here. From the Crow's Nest, we watched the floating bridge swing to the shore for several boats to pass. We were in port with 3 other cruise ships. Two about the size of ours; the Odyssey of the Seas, Eurodam and a very small one the World Voyager. It was a busy port. I am sure the local economy got a huge boost that day.
