Our first visit of the three Caribbean islands on our itinerary is Curaçao. Our day here is 8am to 5pm. We are berthed within very easy walking distance of the town of Willemstad, a picturesque place with its pastel painted buildings in the Dutch style. Home of the vivid blue liqueur, there is much to interest the visitor, with its floating market and a pontoon bridge that separates the two halves of the town. With an average temparature of 27 degrees, the weather is almost always pleasant, and today is no exception, warm but with some cloud. Our visit to the Carabbean is one of island hopping, with a visit to Isla Margarita, and a P&O Cruises "Rhumba on the Chiva" excursion planned for tomorrow, followed by a day in Barbados on Saturday. Curaçao is a very civilized town location, and another great day out.
