Bonaire

It's a rocky, arid little island. We went there in 2016 and did a beach day at a place with a pool and a bar. They did, in fact, have a beach, but there were loungers under some palm trees and then a 5 foot drop to the water. They also had a pool, and we stayed in that for about 2 hours, got our 1 included drink, and went back to the ship.

 

In other words -- not much to do there.

We did a tour. Didn't pre book. Just found a bus/tour at the port. Can't remember the cost. Saw the salt mountains, slave huts and flamingos! It was interesting, but not a port that I'd be in a rush to go back to! I think we were the lst CCL ship to go there. This was on Liberty a few years ago. Maybe go to the port of call boards and ask there.

We did some incredible snorkeling off little bonaire on the samarai sail. Then we later took a tour of north part of island. What a day! Most coral and aquatic wildlife Ive seen since snorkeling in Red Sea off coast of Saudi Arabia when I was a kid. Great town. It's like a little Holland.

 

We also stopped at a cactus liquor store, wildlife preserve, 99 steps, and a few other places.

You can take the excursion through Carnival with Sea Cow or you can book direct with them. Hank & Gia were awesome on the Sea Cow. I'm a great swimmer but I get a little anxious when in the middle of the ocean snorkeling. They made me feel so safe and even one of their helpers stayed right beside a lot of the time.....my husband on the other hand We saw a few huge sea turtles some lion fish and a lot of other sea creatures. Afterwards we just strolled the little area by the port and found a little bar with free wifi & some cheap cocktails Enjoy this port it's awesome one of our favorites
