Senior Trip For Son. Aruba, Barbados, Grenada or Curacao...

Jump to last reply

Hi. Long time lurker but enjoy the forum. Family of 4. We're taking son (age 18) and daughter (age 21) for his Senior Trip. Flexible on dates, and can leave after June 10th. Looking to keep it under $1,500 plus us my frequent flier miles (Delta or American) and/or hotel points (Marriott). Not wedded to that combination, but it's a start, although the availability of airline points seems to be better in June.

Ended up so far with:

Courtyard Bridgetown (Barbados)
Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino (Aruba)
Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino (Aruba)

He wants a "beach experience", although they all have nice beaches. It would be nice, but not essential, to have access to some restaurants, shopping etc. Not sure I want them overly tempted by "partying opportunities" like one might have at a Cancun. One less hassle for me and this should be a time for all of us to be together. Fishing and snorkeling are certainly objectives, along with "good food".

Any suggestions would be appreciated! I will certainly reply back after the trip with a review.
