Day 4, Island Princess Cruise
December 2009

Oranjestad, Aruba

By the time we woke up we were at the dock in Oranjestad. The sky was partly sunny/partly cloudy and it was very hot and humid. We didn't go into town. But it seemed that everybody else did so we had the ship to ourselves.

There were two other cruise ships here today (another good reason to stay on board).

We had a quiet day -- reading, napping, eating -- a perfect day on the Island Princess.

Distance Sailed
Fort Lauderdale to Aruba
1104 nautical miles = 1270 statute miles = 1822 kilometers

NOTE: 1 nautical mile = 1.15 land miles = 1.85 kilometers
