Default Re: Cartagena...1/28

We have been on about 8 cruises and this is a port where I would take a ship's shore excursion or stay aboard the ship. Our cruise director told us that on the previous cruise, two taxi drivers had a fight over someone from the ship going into town to conduct ship's business. We had people stick their hand in the window of the bus selling things at the stop lights. People were waiting for us at each stop to sell things. There was even one man who had a sloth and he put it on people's shoulders and wanted to take pictures of them. This was without their permission. Sloths have sharp claws and it didn't look safe. We were there about 11 years ago on the old cruise line Dolphin. I was very happy to get back to the ship!
