The second stop of our cruise was Curacao one of the ABC islands(along with Aruba and Bonaire) in the Netherlands Antilles.We spent the morning at the beach then toured the shopping area in the afternoon.
Curacao had the most European feel of the islands we visited. You can see by the colourful gabled buildings that they have been heavily influenced by the Dutch in their design. This area has been declared a UNESCO world heritage site.
Another most unique feature of Willemstad is the Queen Emma Floating Pontoon Bridge, that traverses the harbour and totally swings out of the way when a large ship enters.
I'd love to visit here again.
