Default new to cruise critic..shopping suggestions?

Any suggestions on what to shop for in Aruba, La Romana, Curacuo or Grand Turk? Or what not to miss? My husband and I love to cruise...it's like taking mini vacations all at once. This is a new ship and we are very excited to be sailing on it.

I have not found anything in Aruba that I could not find at home. There really are no "native" handicrafts. IMO, I would not shop for anything.

Aruba is VERY americanized- what you have at home is what you will find there.
Balashi beer is their beer of choice- some cheese which Aruba is famous for.
