    Hi - if you haven't done so, check for recommendations on www.cruisecritic.com. Go to the site, then boards, then ports of call. You can post your question there. In Aruba we went on an island tour with Bully who was fantastic (arubabound.com/transp/bully..... In Bonaire, we got a taxi at the pier and that was really disappointing. Have a great cruise!

    Donna beat me to recommending cruisecritic.com but I'd also recommend checking out the boards and port information there and then checking the recommendations you find on Trip Advisor which will usually have the excursions listed under tours. The ones that people recommend on Cruisecritic are almost soley used by cruisers and they are very aware of the time restrictions.

    Since you say that you are "old ladies", I'm guessing that you wouldn't be interested in snorkeling? Bonaire had a fabulous trip with Woodwind, afterwards they hooked us up with a company called Achie tours that took us around the island to see the flamingos and salt flats and slave huts.

    If you are looking to have a beach day, Aruba might be the best bet, the beaches there were gorgeous and most of the activities were not all that exciting. DePalm is the big company that runs tours in Aruba, you might see if they run them for cruise passengers as well. I thought the island tour was a little dull to be honest but it does show you some of the island

    Erik - Kasha still has the stuffed iguana Bully gave to her. He was the best driver/guide we had on any of the islands.
