Tour Details

Wine and Tapas Tasting

Take a break from the ordinary while in Aruba and relax while you tempt your taste buds with a wine tasting experience and learn about international wines.

After being transported from the pier area, you will arrive at your destination and be introduced to your English-speaking Aruba wine sommelier. Your wine expert will reveal to you the basics of international wines and their distinctive characteristics in this small and intimate group setting.

You will be provided with a briefing about wine history and the etiquette on how to drink wine as well as the difference in wine pairings. Take this new knowledge home and use it to become an expert on choosing wines for future celebrations or gifting and impress your family and friends.

Your sommelier will guide you through four different international wines, they will explain how the wines vary by selection and you will be delighted with the tapas pairings selected.

Snack on olives, salami, cheeses and chocolates as your taste buds explode with the flavors. You soon will learn the proper wines you should serve with any meal or casual gathering.

Book today for a delightful, delectable, and delicious Aruban hospitality experience.

Upon completion of your wine experience, you will be taken directly back to the pier area and your ship.

Please Note: Guests must be a minimum of 21 years of age to participate.

Relax and have a glass of wine
May 07, 2018
We had a great time on this excursion. If you are a wine lover and are looking for a nice relaxing tour this is the one for you. The only reason I gave this tour four stars is because we did not receive the salami and chocolates as indicated in the write up, nor did we learn about the proper wines to serve with meals. The chocolates was one of the main reasons I signed up for this tour. I would do this tour once, but it’s not a tour I would do twice.’

We booked this tour for a cruise to Aruba. The Wine Room was highly rated based on our research and our visit exceeded expectations. Monrick picked us up at the port and took us back after. He is definitely an expert sommelier! The ambiance was great and we enjoyed a delicious selection of wines that paired perfectly with the tapas bites and followed our wine likes and interests. We bought a bottle from a region we were previously not familiar with. Would definitely do again!

Monrick was a very talented and knowledgeable wine store owner! He had great tastings with the wine in a relaxing environment. We bought extra wines to take with us, as his selections were top notch!! Would recommend for those that love wine!!

Wine Not?

Excellent (if tiny) wine shop with tastings accompanied with small tapas. Good fun, good value, great wines. Place would not be out of place on a side street in SoHo in Manhattan.

The Wine Room in Aruba is Spectacular! Their Wine Tasting was fun, informative, and worth every penny. The Owners are so incredibly knowledgeable about wines. Best excursion taken and The Princess Cruise Lines are doing both themselves and the Wine Room a Great Disservice by not promoting this Excursion.
