Default HOW FAR IS THE PIER FROM DOWNTOWN IN ORANJESTAAT, ARUBA?

My DW and I will be on a 10 day cruise in October that includes a stop on Aruba. We are very interested in sticking to downtown Oranjestat, and taking in lunch, some "sightseeing" and shopping.

We are figuring we can get off the ship at a leisurely pace (after the "madding" excursion crowds have departed), and make our way downtown.

Is it a practical walk to downtown from the pier? How long will it take? Do we need to take a cab?

Thanks.

The downtown harborfront area of Oranjestad bursts with modern colorful malls that produce a distinctive architechtural trademark. The major downtown shopping centers are the The Atrium, Port of Call Marketplace, Royal Plaza, Seaport Marketplace, Seaport Village Mall and the Strada Complex I and II.
