The majority of the 

Caribbean 

cruises begin at Fort Lauderdale. And even now, there are eight vessels ready to start a voyage.
Our deck is empty because all the passengers were invited on the drill.

This time we booked a large cabin. There were two desks - for people like us who work on the cruise.

As usually, we visited the private island of the cruise company - 

Half Moon Cay

.

I've been here many times and why had I never thought of an idea to fly over the island and go parasailing? To admire the views from the height.

This is fun for any age group.

For some reason, the cruise was not filled: restaurants were empty, a swimming pool was free, a theater was half-empty, and the beach - almost deserted. As for me - it's beautiful.

We came to 

Aruba

. We've also been there before, so we took a tour - a voyage on a catamaran.

After Lakshadweep, islands of New Caledonia, the Red Sea, fish and reefs here are poor, not very interesting.

Our guide prepared some explosive mixture in a barrel: he poured at least five bottles of different alcoholic beverages in it.

But the main purpose of the tour is a sunken German ship called Antilla, it lies at a depth of 18 meters and is clearly visible. It's even possible to dive in just in a life jacket and touch it. By the way, it is perfectly preserved.

When you have a good cabin, you should have breakfast on your own balcony.

We came to Curacao.

This bridge was built as a crossing between two banks over a hundred years ago. And they decided to take the passage fee, but only from the rich ones, 5 cents from citizens in shoes.
And the next thing happened: the poor ones borrowed shoes to look like they were rich, and the rich took off their shoes to spare money.
Nothing has changed in this world!

Shopping on Curacao is really great, it is a duty-free zone.
