Hello!
Going on the Golden Princess on 4/10 and just had a few questions about the ports since we are trying to decide if we should do an excursion or just go on our own!

Grenada - Is it easy to get to Grand Anse Beach (do you know how it is since the Hurricane)and if so the app. cost of a taxi. Is there anything else to do or look at.

La Guera - Is there ANY beaches nearby as it doesn't seem like it and none of the excursions seem appealing to us. If there are how is trying to get to any and is it safe to go on our own.

Aruba - Same thing about the beach and $$ of transportation. Anything else worth looking at.

Of all these places is it best to try and do an excursion or just explore on our own. I don't like with excurions you are limited to only a few hours on the beach.

Also, does anyone know of any of these places (even St. Thomas) if it is easy to find a place to rent Waverunners.

Thanks for everyone's time!

Just back from Aruba

There is a nice beach where all the hotels are about 3 miles from where the ship docks

Taxis easily available for a few dollars

I did a self drive jeep safari which was fun and you got to see most of the island such as the natural bridge etc

You will be able to rent wave runners at most of the public beaches along the hotel zones at these ports.

In Aruba, if you want to rent wave runners go to Eagle Beach as Geordie recommends, but if you are looking for a great beach experience away from the tourists, go to Havanna Beach Club. It is within walking distance of the port. You can find more details and pictures of it, as well as the other beaches in Aruba at our PortReviews site. Here is the link:
