Aruba – our entire collection of photos! (all 8 of them)

And here we have Aruba!  Dutch Caribbean island in the middle of … the Caribbean.

I’d like to say it was the highlight of the cruise, but I guess it wasn’t – we have in grand total 8 photos for our entire time there.

To be honest it wasn’t memorable, we stopped here on a cruise and while I’m sure it was very pretty, but I actually can’t remember it.  I am pretty sure we went for a walk around the main town where the ship docked, likely we went to the supermarket.

For the sake of all readers (apologies to Aruban’s in advance), Aruba consists of the following spectacular highlights (based on my photos) –

  • Snow – else presumably they bought the “No Parking” sign on sale
  • Green Lizards (or iguanas?)
  • Iguanas
  • A pretty port area

  1. My kids would have loved it there chasing all those green iguanas. Perhaps, I could set up a deck chair there and sit down in peace! Hope the rest of your cruise exceeds your expectations! xx Rowena

    • The rest of the cruise was great! Aruba was fine, it just wasn’t somewhere I’d rave about. I guess I’m just not into tropical island holidays.

      • They’re looking pretty good to me as the cold sets in here. What sort of holidays do you prefer? We usually go somewhere to see family or go skiing. Looks like we’re having a break from skiing this year though. Might head down to Tassie.

      • I like holidays where I can learn about history and culture or Disney :-). I hate sand and I loath cold – beaches and skiing are out 🙂

      • I don’t know if all Australian love beach holidays but they’re certainly in my blood and we live metres from the beach. When they were younger \, our kids even did nippers, which is the junior form of surf lifesaving.
        I love historical holidays tooand while we do have some historical buildings in Australia, we tend to have to go overseas, which can be quite expensive. My husband and I went to New Zealand for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and that was fantastic and ticked those boxes. We really enjoyed Rotorua and the Mauri history.

      • It’s only about 30 mins to the beach for us or just over an hour to the nearest ski field – neither of which I go to often 🙂

  2. LOL @ the no parking sign! This sale must have been nowhere near Aruba!

  3. Aruba has some interesting countryside, but you have to take an excursion to see it.

  5. I hate when that happens and you get caught up and forget to take photos or you’re too tired, perhaps to take any. I love how the lizards and iguanas seem to get progressivelyrics bigger in each of your photos 😊
