I wish there was a way to avoid this port but it seems to come up on every Western or Southern Caribbean cruise. We did a tour on the Chu Chu Train and it was very unnerving because of the armed guard. I know it was for our own safety but I don't believe the ships should be stopping in places like that with family's.
Did an excursion here with a little hiccup. We did the Curacao Beach Escape. It was supposed to be on an open air bus with narration about Curacao and a place to stop for pictures and end at the beach. We loaded on a old closed bus with no air, it was about 120 degrees in this bus! About 3/4 of the cruisers got off an went back to the ship. We chose to stay on and brave it out. The bus took us straight to the beach. No nothing in between! A different bus came back in 2 hours and took us back to the ship. I would not recommend this excursion to anyone!
