  1. We have been to Aruba twice now while cruising. The first time we toured with Aruba Trikes and it was awesome. The second time with ABC Tours Jeeps, also great. I don't remember seeing many doing the off-roading on their own. If you are very adventurous, you probably could do it but we prefered to let those that know the island best do the driving. No matter what you do, you will love Aruba. Good luck!
  2. Hi OrcaGirl. We were just at Carlisle Bay with Celebrity. We walked from port to the bay, about 15-20 minutes. Picked Joe's Bar which was a set of about 12 like green umbrellas. They charged $20 for 2 chairs and umbrella. Very nice. The beach areas you get through the ship excursions usually pack you in many deep. Also check the Boatyard, a very popular choice here on CC. Good luck.
  3. I have been to Aruba twice and both times taken a tour. You won't see much of Aruba if you don't take a tour. Get into the hills where all the beautiful sights are. There are many good tours to choose from. We did Aruba Trikes one year and ABC Tours just a few weeks ago. Both were excellent. We are both 60 years old. Have fun!
  4. Yes, there is. I think all but the tower rooms are being renovated.
  5. Does a High Tower-Balcony Water View translate to an Intercoastal Balcony?
  6. Bonaire Cruisers golf cart rental will be my choice for a second visit to Bonaire in January. They're the best. Good luck and have a great cruise.
  7. Sounds like the only rooms available during the renovation are the tower rooms so you should be fine. Enjoy your trip!
  8. I do have an Intercoastal room and called to ask about the view. I was told I would have a view of the cruise ships. You either have a view of the pool or of the cruise ships in the towers is what I was told. This can be so confusing!
  9. That would be great. Have a safe trip.
  10. Please keep us posted here. I have a tower room booked for May 2020.
  11. Hi WallyNDiane, We noticed the same problem with inflated flight and hotel prices for our Embarkation of Jan 31 on Celebrity Reflection. We decided to fly into Orlando the day before, rent a car and drive to Melbourne, FL for a night stay at the Hampton Inn (HH members with points for a free night) and then drive on to FLL the next morning, return car and get onboard. We will then fly out of FLL on Monday, Feb 10, long after the SB frenzy is over. This way was much cheaper than a round-trip flight for us. Good luck and enjoy your cruise!
  12. If you would like to see a wonderful Vlog on YouTube regarding Go Port Canaveral, check out Cruise Tips TV. Sherry recently did a review of the program. Not sure the cost but am sure you can goggle that information. Good luck and have a great cruise.
  13. Hi Rob. Your post really puts me at ease. We have an Intercoastal balcony view double bed tower room booked for May 2020. I actually emailed the hotel staff that wrote comments to negative reviews on TripAdvisor. I asked him if we should be looking elsewhere. He did reply that they are working on improvements and he suggested we keep our reservation. Great photos!
