On March 15, 2020 the Government of Aruba has made the difficult, but necessary decision to mandate a suspension of all inbound travel to Aruba by non-residents of Aruba. This will be in effect beginning midnight Monday, March 16 until further notice. These restrictions are subject to change as we may consider additional precautionary measures as needed. Specifically: Anyone who is not a resident of Aruba, will not be permitted to enter Aruba. Visitors currently in Aruba will be able to leave Aruba. Aruba residents currently traveling abroad will be permitted to return home to Aruba. A negative travel advisory will be in place for Aruba residents advising against outbound travel during this period.


The Government of Aruba has introduced a curfew as of Saturday (March 21st) between 9pm and 6am. Only exceptions are pharmacies and vital jobs. As of Saturday, no one can enter Aruba including residents.

All restaurants and supermarkets are open until 8:00pm. Some restaurants have delivery and take-out services. Supermarkets allowing people to enter only by batch.

Queen Beatrix International Airport is open but there are no incoming passenger flights.

We were a couple of the "boat people" when Holland America's Koningsdam docked in port last week.

We took the bus down to Sandra's. She rents chairs on Palm Beach. A lovely woman.

Spent a full day doing our best to do what we do in Aruba. Did the walk from Holiday Inn to Phoenix, swam at most of the beaches along the way, shopped at De Palm pier , enjoyed a daiquiri and bought a t shirt at red sail sport.

Made it back to town by 3:30, had enough time to pick up gouda cheese and 2 cans of our favorite Dutch extra creamy condensed milk (love it in coffee) at Hong King. Visited the stores in Renaissance Mall and all of a sudden it was 4:15! Hightailed it back to the ship as all on board was 4:30. Half hour later we were on deck waving bon voyage to Aruba till next time!
