Nieuw Amsterdam visited Jan. 26. Here are some shots of the colors and scenes walking through town on front and back streets during the late afternoon.
The main town is a 5-minute water taxi ride ($6 roundtrip) from the cruise terminal. It can be walked in about 15 or 20 minutes, too. Sandy beaches along the bay. Shopping along the streets. And if you spend some time looking, there are some good restaurants and unique stores.
