About Curacao

The ship passes through a channel in the reef, into a broad, perfectly protected natural harbor. This is Willemstad, where Dutch gingerbread houses, superb shopping, excellent restaurants and bustling casinos abound. Nature buffs will love the exotic plants and tropical birdlife of Christoffel National Park. And don't forget to sample the famous Curacao liqueur, still made here.

There are two main docking areas. If you are lucky you can enjoy a dramatic sail in/sail away as the ship encounters the narrowest and prettiest of harbour entrances; allowing you to converse with onlookers shoreside with the greatest of ease. Otherwise, you park-up at a more utilitarian pier just outside Willemstad's walled centre. The city is small but perfectly formed with the entry over the floating bridge an obvious highlight. Beaches within fifteen minutes of the pier side. Willemstad, Curacao is colourful, vibrant and very Dutch.

One of the best ports on the cruise. Take theCuracao Sea and see tour. Be sure and buy the Liqueur at the factory. The best price on the cruise.Seaworld Explorer was worth it also.Lots of fish.

The place is squeeky clean and beautiful. The colorful stucco homes and tile roofs reminded me of pictures I have seen of the Mediterrean. The bridge that connects both parts of the island is a wonder. I was surprised by how clean and friendly everyone was. This island, formally known as one of the ABC islands of the Dutch Antillies is the best one of the bunch. I thought highly of Aruba but this island far surpasses in beauty and things to do. I know that I will come back and spend some time here at a resort and enjoying the ammenities Curacao has to offer.

Nice town to walk, it's much shorter walk than it looks to downtown. Van Drake Island Beach is nice. This is at the other end of the island.

We took the fun bus to a resort that was obviously still under construction. The "beach" consisted of small pebbles and no sand. A waste of our time and money. Should have stayed on the ship.
