  1. Baby Beach is in the town of San Nicholas, which is about 35 - 45 minutes by taxi from the cruise port.
  2. There is a spot on Eagle Beach that has bathrooms and a snack bar. Just tell the taxi or bus driver to let you off at Chalet Suisse Restaurant. The beach is right across the street. You can rent chairs and umbrellas there.

    That's interesting. We travel to Aruba by air and have to show our passport to enter. I've only cruised to Aruba once.Thanks for the info.

    Aruba requires a passport.
  5. I know someone that did this tour and she really enjoyed it.
  6. Has anyone tried to post this report on Celebrity's facebook page? I find all of this very disturbing, and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Celebrity isn't openly addressing this. If so, I imagine that they are opening themselves up to a lot of lawsuits, along with losing a lot of loyal cruisers.
  7. That's what I think, also. There are several vendors right there.
  8. Pelican Pier is near Marriott Surf Club
  9. They definitely got lucky. I vacation in Aruba every year and believe me, this is not how it usually works. The vendors in that area rent chairs and umbrellas. Either no one noticed them come in, or thought that they were hotel guests. They usually watch people like hawks.
  10. I enjoyed your trip report. We sailed on Summit to Bermuda last August and loved it. We just got back last week from our annual Aruba vacation for 3 weeks. We saw your ship the day that it was in port. Aruba was a little rainier and windier this year, but all of the rains lasted just a few minutes. We did the ABC cruise on Equinox a few years ago and it is my favorite Caribbean cruise. We also had Captain Matt. He was so friendly. I loved the way that he interacted with the guests.

    The airport is definitely busier on the weekends, especially Saturdays.

    It used to be called Nikki Beach. Baby Beach is about 40 minutes from the cruise port, passed San Nicolas.

    Amsterdam Manor quit renting loungers to cruisers a couple years ago. It is located around the corner from the sewage treatment plant, and often, the stench from the plant reaches Amsterdam Manor. Lately, it has been horrible. I don't recommend it for lunch or dinner anymore. I was just in Aruba for 3 weeks and it was very bad the majority of the time.

    The trolley only runs from the cruise port to Main Street, which is downtown, to encourage cruisers to shop.
