This is our first Caribbean cruise, and we can't wait! Can anyone give us a great excursion for the Southern Caribbean islands???
(Aruba, St. Marteen, Curacao)

Thanks!

I am a total beach person so my preferences may differ from yours. What kinds of things are you interested in doing in port? Also, you might want to check out our sister site, Port Reviews, for suggestions in each port: http://www.caribbeanportreviews.com

BTW, Welcome to cruise-chat.

Hi Nancy,

We love the beach as well, but I really want to explore the island and do a little snorkeling. What is the best way to explore the island without being in a caravan of 25 jeeps?

What we do in many ports is ask the cab drivers how much they would charge for a tour of the island. Most of the time it is reasonable and they will take you to tourist traps, but also to local sites and tell you a bit about the island's history. The last time we were in Aruba, we took a catamaran for a snorkel in the morning, ate lunch on board then took a cab around for a couple of hours. I'm not into shopping, so we just hit some spots on the island. Have a wonderful trip.
