Several major U.S. and European cruise lines stop at Curaçao. The island has two docking spots for cruise ships – the mega ships can dock at the Mega Pier and the smaller ships can dock at the cruise terminals within the harbor. All cruise terminals are connected to the city's main shopping and business areas. Curaçao seaports are all natural, sheltered ports that offer safe, fast, efficient and reliable handling of both ships and cargo. Two cruise terminals are located in the Otrabanda section of Willemstad so duty free shopping areas can be easily reached by foot. The Mega cruise ships can dock at the Mega Pier and the smaller ships can dock at the Mathey Wharf, which is the cruise terminal located in the harbor.
We invite you to put Curaçao on your cruising map for your next vacation.
