Charles Davis brings us a photo report from Curaçao. It is currently on the Britannia and Adonis route, and many other ships are visiting this very special island (It is where Stuart got that bush hat). The photos are from his post on the Caribbean Chat site, share your films and experience. From the birth of your ship you can walk to the Willemstad promenade. The capital has narrow-gabled, 17th, 18th and 19th century Dutch and Spanish Colonial architecture in cool pastel shades, juxtaposed with intense yellows and royal blues. Willemstad is divided into two – Otrobanda and Punda joined by the Queen Emma Bridge, also known as the Swinging Old Lady. It is a pontoon bridge which swings open many times a day to allow ships in and out of the harbour. There are the usual beach breaks and excursions, one will no doubt be offered in a Beach by Chiva Bus, which is like the yellow American school buses but painted fun blue. The dramatic Hato Caves may be on your list, they are a collection of lit grottoes is filled with stalactites, stalagmites and crystal-clear pools.
