This article presents travel-related information about Aruba, the smallest island of the ABC Dutch West Indies off the coast of South America which is an unusual cruise port. The Spanish explorer Alonso de Ojeda discovered the island in 1499. Aruba became a separate entity within the Netherlands in 1986, yet retains strong ties to Holland and the Dutch West Indies. The island is about 20 miles long and six miles across at its widest point with a total area of 70 square miles. A short distance west is De Olde Molen, an unusual restaurant housed in an ancient windmill first built in Holland in 1804, then brought to Aruba in 1961 as a tourist attraction. The island's steady northeast trade winds make Aruba the windsurfing capital of the Caribbean. Ships from virtually every cruise line plying the Caribbean call in Oranjestad, Aruba, including Carnival Cruise Lines Inc., Celebrity Cruises Inc., Costa Cruises, Holland America Line Inc., Norwegian Cruise Line Ltd., Radisson Seven Seas Cruises Inc., Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., and Silversea Cruises Ltd.
