Cruising in Panama
Aboard The Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas
7 night Southern Caribbean Cruise


Our next port of call was Willemstad, Curacao, a UNESCO site. This little island lies 35 miles north of Venezuela and 42 miles east of Aruba. It is the largest of the 5 islands that comprise the Netherlands Antilles at 38 miles long and 7.5 miles wide. 170,000 call this island home.

The cruise just kept getting better and better. Here in this picture postcard perfect city there is a floating bridge, and not just a small one. It opens to let the ships through. The houses and buildings are painted in pastel colours and the ambiance of this city is just plain welcoming. Outdoor cafes line the waterway and with locals playing music the happy holiday feel of the place just takes your breath away. There is an open market which is a floating market consisting of small boats selling fish, fruits and vegetables and all kinds of handicrafts. There is so much to see here that the time flies bye and before you know it you have to head back to the ship, feeling so much better for having spent the day here.
