Caribbean cruise: Curaçao
January 6, 2009 at 11:28PM Travel Caribbean Curaçaowrote earlier, my parents and I spent New Year's 2009 in Florida. After a few days in Florida, we set off on a Caribbean cruise on the Queen Mary 2. We visited 6 islands over a 10 day cruise.
We spent our first two days at sea and made our way down to the island of Curaçao in the southern Caribbean, just off the coast of Venezuela. Curaçao is part of the Netherlands Antilles, so I guess I've been to the Netherlands now.Caribbean Resort in Walt Disney World, where we've stayed before).
In order to get the lay of the land when we first docked in Curaçao, I went out for a run around town. After two days on ship (two wonderful days, I might add), it was nice to get out and stretch my legs. It was a great way to see the town and figure out where everything was.
Willemstad was the nicest of the cities we visited in the Caribbean—it had a very European flavour to it, and we enjoyed having lunch in a café along the bay.
