Curacao is now one of my favorite ports!
A few pictures of what we could see from our balcony. It was a beautiful day, but hot!
When you get off the ship in most ports you have tour guides roaming around trying to encourage you to take one of their tours. I was so happy to see that the pen them in, in Curacao!
Great spot for a picture of our ship, the Carnival Liberty!
As you are leaving the port area there are a handful of signs with information about the island's history.
Our plan was to explore the city within walking distance. My daughter uses a wheelchair when we are going on long walks. It was so great when we realized that majority of the city was accessible! Well paved streets made for a relaxing day. if I recall correctly the picture on the right is Heerenstr Street.
I LOVED the floating markets. Boats come in from Venezuela everyday to sell their delicious produce. There is also a large round shopping center next to the boats called the Central Market.
Curacao is a very colorful city. To get to the floating markets and shopping areas we had to wait for the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge to open up. If you are visiting the island be prepared for a long wait if the bridge is closed. It was about a 45 minute wait for us!
The view from Punda.
Our walk through the Renaissance hotel and casino grounds on our way back to the ship. If you need your American food/drink fix, there are a few fast food options as well as a Starbucks within walk able distance form the pier.
