Default Celebrity Equinox cruise doens't make sense

I was checking out possible cruises on the Celebrity Equinox and this one doesn't make any sense:

14 Night Transatlantic Cruise Aboard Celebrity Equinox

It's their 14-day transatlantic crossing. It shows day one in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and then day 8 in Ponta Delgada, Portugal. Then for day 11 it shows it going all the way back to Cartegena, Colubmia in South America and on that same day it shows it in Barcelona, Spain.

??????

How can it be in Columbia and Spain on the same day? What am I not getting or is this just a typo?

Oooops, that'll be Cartegena in Spain then - or a couple of very quick Transatlantic crossings ;-)

However I would still expect that to show as a day or two before Barcelona. The Spanish version is down on the South East tip

Hope someone remembers to tell the Captain where they are going.

Happy sailing (where-ever you go)

The travel agency obviously messed it up. the itinerary on Celebrity's web site shows the ship departing from Fort Lauderdale (undoubtedly really Port Everglades), Florida, USA, on Day 1 and calling at Pontal Del Garda, Azores, on Day 8, Cartagena, Spain, on Day 11, Barcelona on Day 12, Toulon (for Provence), France, on Day 13, and Florence (undoubtedly really Livourno), Italy, on Day 14, before disembarkation in Civitavecchia (for Rome), Italy, on day 15.

Okay, thanks. I thought that had to be a mistake. Otherwise the Equinox would have set a new Atlantic crossing record. .

That is eally funny that they printed the map that way.

Like you, I have seen "Cartagena" on European itineraries and I thought it was a mistake, just because thwe Columbian Cartegena used to be a pretty popular cruise stop.

Now I see the one in Spain on more itineraries than the one in Columbia.

I hope that Cartagena, Columbia is still a nice cruise stop because I will be there on my next cruise.

We have never visited Cartagena (Col) by cruise ship but spent 2 weeks there on a land vacation in the mid 80's and it was wonderful! If time permits, you should go to the old walled city. Well worth it. And there were so many different ethnic restaurants I think we ate a different cuisine every night. I hope it hasn't changed too much-I think you will really enjoy it. The only downside when we were there was the street sellers-very pushy
