  1. We would check on the type of buses used too.
  2. We found a taxi in town easily. Do get the local phone number of a taxi company though.
  3. Also look into the Curacao Beach Express which we took through Holland America. We spent the morning there and the bus waited for us.
  4. We took Holland America and did the Curacao Beach Express to Blue Bay.
  5. The town of Willemstad has many sites and museums. Good place to walk around.

    Aruba at 4 pm

    We took a taxi to Gilligans at the Radisson (now Hilton) and that was good with a band playing. The taxi was only $10 for two.
  7. Embassy Suites is good. We have had the breakfast ther, then a big lunch on the patio, then the reception. We didn't even need dinner!
  8. The website for Hyatt Place on 17th St. gives lots of information.
  9. A tour of Willemstad can take hours. We would have a big lunch on the ship and tour Willemstad all afternoon or have a customized tour.
  10. We took a good land tour in Barbados, through the ship, which stopped at St. John's Church, Andromeda Gardens, and a landhouse where we had drinks and a rest. We went all the way from town and back again another route and experienced much of the central island.
  11. Thank you for the detailed review and the photos.
  12. The Hyatt Place and the Embassy Suites are good places to check on prices.
  13. How far is Reflexions from the pier?
  14. Go to Ardastra Gardens- then spend the evening on the ship.
  15. Grand Turk would be our choice given the circumstances.
  16. Hi - Which cruise line did the reviews?
  17. The Blue Lagoon is very nice except if it's windy or cool.
  18. Magens Bay early and then shopping is what we would do. Have been there when 5 ships were in- went to Magens early.
  19. We took the Beach Break bus through the ship's excursions and went to Blue Bay for the morning. The bus picked us up and we went back to the ship for lunch and then to Willemstad. We would price compare for other excursions.
  20. Eagle and Palm Beaches are two of the best. Where does kukoo kunuku go?
  21. We liked the Melia, the Blue Lagoon, and the Hilton. Check the weather and the prices.
  22. Cabbage can sometimes have high surf!
  23. Looking forward to the review.
  24. We did the Dolphin Encounter. I also would choose that.
  25. We took Amtrak from Boston to Fort Lauderdale- the Silver Meteor- the day before our cruise. We took a taxi from the Ft. L. station to our hotel,The Holiday Inn Express, near the port. We then walked to restaurants, shopping centers, and other places without crossing the big boulevard.
