Not heard of the Netherlands Antilles? How about names such as St, Maarten, Bonaire and Curaçao? Bonaire boasts a reef-lined coast, superb water sports and is a divers’ paradise where you can spot tuna, blue martin and sailfish. In contrast, Curaçao is a bustling island with its central town, Willemstad, oozing with old buildings and fine museums.  [ReadMoreMob]

As you would expect in the Netherland Antilles the food is very Dutch with plenty of fresh seafood and cheese. But you’ll also find dishes with a Creole, French and Italian influence.

The Netherland Antilles offer cruise guests a variety of sights, sounds and beaches that are hard to top.
