This morning we woke up and went to breakfast at Meridian, which is in the back of the ship. We had a table next to a big window (and a ton of high chairs!) which was nice. There was a loud talking lady behind CSP who was a major expert on Bonaire without ever having been there! She was so loud talking that we could barely talk amongst ourselves. Sigh.
After breakfast we went back to our room and got ready for the day. We docked in Bonaire at 1pm ish. By 2 pm we were on the island. We walked into town, the capital Kralendijk. It’s sooo pretty!
We went to Karel’s and tried their conch fritters. So yummy! CSP had a Polar beer and I had a cocktail called Yellow Bird. Wooo! They sure do pour their drinks strong in Bonaire! One and done for me! We sat on the deck part that’s over the water and it was such a gorgeous day again today! It was so relaxing. There are pigeons all over the place begging for food. They are NOT scared of people! They cracked me up. AND there was a dude snorkeling just off the dock. Bonaire is world famous for scuba diving and snorkeling and this guy chooses the area right beside a beach bar??
After Karel’s we walked around Kralendijk for a while, just exploring. We went to Luciano’s where CSP got a coffee and we shared a delicious warm waffle with a scoop of chocolate and sea salt ice cream on top. They served it with the tiniest little fork and spoon. So precious!
We really like Bonaire- it’s clean and safe and no one bothers you. Highly recommend! We walked back to the ship. The Horizon is a HUGE ship! Over 4000 passengers! It’s the biggest ship we’ve ever cruised on. You don’t realize how big it is until you’re standing next to it and you feel like a tiny bug!
We got showered and dressed for dinner. After dinner we went back to the room and to bed early because we have an early day tomorrow in Aruba!!!
