Aruba Beach Massage?

Any beaches in Aruba where you can get a massage? I know several of the hotels and spas offer them, but I'm thinking just a beach location.

Anyone have any experience with this?

We're cruising on Crown Princess on January 14th. I wonder: does that mean the 7 day cruise will be no balcony smoking or all balcony smoking days? Will they have one day of smoking, then tell...
