This is the only synagogue in Oranjestad. It is Conservative. They hold services every Friday night and are very welcoming. If you are looking to celebrate Shabbat, this is the place to go.

Yes. All cruise lines dock in center of Oranjestad. Synagogue is there. Just ask. You can use your GPS when get off. Walking distance. Good luck.
