What You Can Expect

Aruba Shore Excursion: Highlights of Aruba

California Lighthouse

Get to know the island of Aruba when your cruise ship docks by visiting all of its highlights on an island tour. Your guided tour picks you up at your ship and heads first to an aloe factory to see how this Aruban specialty is produced; (please note: if you're visiting on a Sunday, the aloe facotry is closed, so you'll visit Aruba’s quaint mission-style Chapel of Alto Vista instead).

Next, stop at the California lighthouse, where you'll take a guided tour and take in gorgeous views, and then see Aruba’s rocky interior at the Casibari Rock Formation and Park. You'll have the opportunity to climb to the top of the rock formation, where you'll enjoy spectacular views of the island. Finally, take a drive past Aruba’s coastal high-rise resorts and hotels before being dropped off at your ship.

To really get a feel for island life, you have the option to stay longer and visit Palm Beach, where you can swim and relax. If you choose to do this, you will be dropped off at the beach and picked up an hour later for return to your cruise ship.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to the Aruba port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call.
