Willemstad, Curacao
Curacao is one of the Dutch Antilles. This is reflected in the Dutch cuisine served in the island’s restaurants and in the Dutch-style houses of the capital Willemstad. Here shopping is superb…the ‘Floating Market’ alongside the canal is well worth checking out. You will find anything from tropical fruits and vegetables to local handicrafts. Visit the dramatic Hato Caves, a series of grottos with underground waterfalls and ancient Indian petroglyphs, or explore the spectacular Curacao Sea Aquarium, where you will see around 400 exotic species of marine life. Dive in the sapphire blue waters near the beautiful coral reef and experience feeding turtles and stingrays. Then discover Curacao’s Ostrich Farm, where you will see how the ostrich develops from an egg to the largest bird in the world. Before you leave the island, you must try the famous Curacao’s fruity liqueur.

Our cabin was spacious and comfortable. Dining was a pleasure and the ship was easy to manoeuvre around. Loved the talk on the History of Faberge and the chance to see Faberge Eggs - Brilliant. We also enjoyed the BBC Planet Earth programmes.

Seems pointless writing a cruise review if it will not be published if you do not agree with the comments.

I enjoyed cruise but was dissapointed that we didnt see more of Panama Canal. Entertainment on ship not too good. Staff very good and helpful. Pre cruise arrangements good but Collins Hotel in Miami very basic.. Post cruise arrangements awful. Spent all day in Miami Airport. No special assistance organised and very disjointed. All in all would not recommend this cruise to anyone elderly travelling on their own.
