I'm not sure you can get off of a ship mid-cruise as far as I know. Good luck finding a cruise line that will allow you to do that, I don't think it's possible?

Agree, if you are leaving from the US on a closed-loop cruise, you are not allowed to get off and stay in Aruba, as far as I know. And, there are no cruises that begin and end in Aruba.

Pullmantur Cruises offers a 7 day itinerary departing from Aruba from April 2013 though early January 2014.

The itinerary is Caracas (La Guaira), Venezuela, Curacao, Colon, Panama, Cartagena, Colombia.

They are a Spanish cruise line catering to Spanish language clientele so the primary language used on board is Spanish, however, most staff speak English.

Good to know Lisa...so the person could potentially start their trip in Aruba early, and then cruise out from there.

We did this cruise with Pullmantur in 2011 so if you need any information would be happy to help. It was a fantastic trip. I would recommend that you either speak Spanish or be comfortable with knowing that 99% of those around you are speaking Spanish.

Some of these posts are quite old now, has anyone done a cruise and stay in Aruba since them. I have seen that Pullmantur still advertise, we will be travelling from a London Airport, has anyone done the trip via Amsterdam Schipol?

Hi Purestone

We are going on the Pullmantar cruise in a few days!! We wanted to know what you did (and what was safe) at the ports. So far I am finding Caracas and colon to be stops we may not venture very far from the boat. If you have any suggestions that would be fabulous! We are Canadian and don't speak much Spanish at all (but chose this trip for the experience and culture!)
