Default Willemstad Trolley Train

Our cruise ship (Queen Mary 2) only stays in Willemstad for 5 1/2 hours - 4 hours for us ashore if we are lucky.
I see that there is a sightseeing "trolley train" which trundles around town.
Has anyone tried this? How long does it take? What is the cost? Does it start anywhere near the place where large cruise ships dock?
Thanks

PS can anyone offer a link to a good map of the docking area and town?
I haven't found one yet........

Thanks, that was a useful link.
Have now discovered that the trolley train starts at Fort Amsterdam on the Punda side of the harbour.

Sound like a fun trip of 1 1/4 hour sightseeing.
