When we originally booked this trip we were quite excited because it was originally scheduled to go to Bonaire, one of our favorite places, especially for snorkeling. However about six months prior to the trip Princess changed the itinerary and replaced Bonaire for Curaçao. We were disappointed but well what can you do. We like Curaçao and today our thoughts were to head to Kon Tiki Beach and just relax.
The morning starts out normal, we are sitting in the Piazza enjoying our latte and breakfast items and we both notice that we should be docking, but we seem to be going away from the island. Shortly the Captain comes on the speaker to announce unfortunately because of high winds were are not able to dock safely at the pier. Of course we hear grumblings all around us, but we discuss our options with our friends.
We call up Mike and Sue and head over to check out their suite and the large balcony, and of course some wine, made only better because of the company.
beautiful aft balcony with a view of the wake and doesn't Bernie look relaxed
Only a few bottles were consumed, NOT
I had to settle for a soda because well the effects of drinking all day were getting to me
Some of the finger foods we got to share
What a fun day. I wrote on my live thread about our great day and what we did, and apparently the Captain reads the live threads on Cruisecritic because the next day we ran into Capatin Yeomans and he said "man if I would of known cancelling a port would end up being so great for our passengers I would of done it sooner".
