All of a sudden we could hear the helicopter off in the distance... the adrenaline is kicking in! Here is a link the company we used. http://www.arubahelitours.com/
Click on the video just to see a small portion of what we experienced.
Oh my God I can't believe I am actually putting up this horrible picture of me, but it is the only one I have us both on the helicopter. Cool!
This is the Natural Bridge that collapsed (actually collapsed the same day Katrina hit). Beside it is the Smaller Natural Bridge.

Our chopper! See I know the lingo.
We were on such a high! We walked around the city and did some shopping and had lunch, at Pizza Hut, yup Pizza Hut... I had a craving for Pizza. Across the street are a whole bunch of craft vendors and souvenir shops.

We are tired, and it is hot so we head back onto the ship and take a nap and relax because tonight it is the Chef's Table. Now for those of you who don't know about the Chef's Table well all I say is WOW. You need to sign up ahead of time, they usually only have two Chef's Tables per cruise and each table holds 10 people. The cost is $75 per person but includes a behind the scene tour of the galley during dinner. While in the galley you are served four appetizers with champagne. The whole event is hosted by our Matre D'Hotel Guisseppi, along with Executive Chef Guisseppi.

Some of the great staff that work very hard
The place is hoping and runs very very smoothly

The pastry chef prepared a special dessert for us! Not to mention the spun glass dish.
All the courses were paired with wines, a white, a red and a dessert wine. We were stuffed. The evening finished with the photographers coming in a taking a picture of the table and then one with us and the Chef and Matre d' Hotel. We were given a copy of the Princess Cookbook with a special insert of the menu we were served tonight. And finally a rose... ahhh
