Last time we were in Curacao the pier where we docked was right by the old fort and within easy walking distance to the pontoon bridge and the downtown section. I have been told that the Carnival Miracle actually sails up the river by the pontoon bridge and under the high rise bridge and docks further up. That would make a long walk back to the downtown area. Is that true where the Carnival Miracle docks? If so are there waer taxis to go back downtown? Thanks for any info.
I just got off Miracle on this itinery last week. We docked at a different pier then the one you are referring. Why? Could be a couple reasons.
1.) Carnival might not use that pier.
2.) When we arrived in Curacao, the Zuterdam was already docked at the dock you are referring to.
3.) We might have been at the other pier because due to hurricane Tomas, we ended up doing our ports backwards, so we were not in Curacao when we were supposed to be.
I will tell you this, I have a beautiful picture of Curacao, taken from my 8th floor balcony, of the town, with the Zuterdam at the dock you are referring to, parked right in front of that bridge. So if you do dock at the pier that is a little further away from the town, you will have a better photo op than anyone else.
