Oranjestad, Aruba

Great for: Hiking, desert adventures, sunny beaches
If you’ve only got six hours: Spend them at Eagle Beach, said by some to be the best beach in the Caribbean and not always as crowded as resort-laden Palm Beach.

Aruba calls itself «One Happy Island,» which might have something to do with the fact that it rains here less often than Cleveland wins championships. So a sunny day at Eagle Beach is pretty much a guarantee, but beyond the beaches, even a short port call allows you time to check out Arikok National Park, the most spectacular desertscape in the Caribbean. A horseback ride to the hidden seaside swimming hole is the ultimate peaceful getaway from the teeming masses on your ship.
