“It is best to get off when a cruise ship is exiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

We were told that once the alarm sounds you have 30 seconds or so to get off the bridge. If it is opening for a cruise ship you could be stuck for an hour on the bridge.

“"Unmissable"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

The floating bridge of Willemstad is pretty unique, a must see sight in Curacao, but as it's right in the heart of Willemstad it's hard to miss it anyway.

“Walking on Water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

This is always a nice aspect of a visit to Willemstad. Seeing the town from the middle of the inlet allows one to experience both sides of the inlet views. And if the bridge is open, there is always the ferry!
