Aruba
"One Happy Island"


The first port on our cruise was Oranjestad, Aruba. There are car rental offices just across the street from the cruise dock for the brave and adventurous. We rented 4X4 Jeeps and tried to see all the hot spots (pictured below) on the island. If you rent a vehicle make sure to ask the rental agent to explain the islands road signs. I drove around all day on Aruba and still don't know what their stop sign looks like!
