Since we are moving toward the peak travel season, I am hurrying to post my trip report in a timely manner. The first third of my trip with nearly 100 photos is now online at http://www.mightymac.org/aruba/index.htm It includes an ABC Jeep Tour, Red Sails sunset cruise and a day where we hired a taxi to go to other attractions.
We flew into Oranjestad on Sunday, October 24 and returned on the 30th. This was our honeymoon and our first trip to Aruba.
We stayed at the Radisson Aruba Resort. I had booked a deluxe ocean view room when making the reservation through Expedia. I emailed to confirm the reservation directly with the Radisson a few days before the trip and mentioned it would be our honeymoon. At check in, we learned that the hotel had upgraded us to a suite.
We dined at several of the restaurants that we heavily mentioned here. Over all, the food was good, but no better than I can get at fine restaurants at home. But the settings were very nice. Particularly for the first meal (ocean side at Passions) and the last (in a bed at Screaming Eagle).
I hope to post the rest of the trip by the end of this weekend.
