Enjoy the Beautiful Southern Caribbean Ports of Aruba and Curaçao
We’ve been working diligently with Holland America Line to secure a new itinerary of ports that were unaffected by this devastating hurricane season to provide our valued guests with beautiful alternative Caribbean destinations for our 2018 Soul Train Cruise. We are excited to announce that the new ports for the upcoming Soul Train Cruise will be Oranjestad, Aruba and Willemstad, Curaçao. In addition to being two breathtaking destinations on the southern end of the Caribbean; these two ports have the added bonus of being completely new for the Soul Train Cruise. We can't wait to explore them with you.
Cruise to Oranjestad, Aruba
Any visitor will create their own Aruba cruise experience, but here are two to try. First, there is the Aruba of beaches, sun and shopping. And why not? The beaches shimmer. The sun grants its benedictions through dry, 82-degree days all year long. And the shopping buzzes along Main Street and Lloyd G. Smith Boulevard.
Second, there is the time-sculpted Aruba. Arikok National Park covers nearly one-fifth of the island and is home to species you'll find nowhere else, caves for exploring, and ragged, wind-torn bits of coastline. Of course, there are a million other Arubas. Go find yours.
Cruise to Willemstad, Curaçao
If there were no canals, the Dutch would have invented them. Behold Willemstad, with its deep water harbor, interlacing waterways, and narrow shop fronts that seem always to be stretching to their full height. The capital City of Curaçao is a Caribbean cruise delight. Willemstad graces the Shottegat harbor with neighborhoodsthat mix Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese urban styles and then dresses them in radiant pastels. It's a combination seen nowhere else in the former Dutch colonies. Wander the shops and markets of the Punda and Otrobanda districts and soak up some color.
We appreciate your patience and the tireless efforts of Holland America Line to create this new schedule that allows us to experience these tropical gems in the Southern Caribbean. We hope you join us in exploring these islands that are rich in culture, natural beauty and crystal clear beaches.
