I'm surprised they still have this on their itineraries. I don't think they've stopped there in a long time either. Didn't on our cruise a few years ago. I don't think they replaced the port. I think it we had another sea day.

I have had it on two itineraries: Island Princess and Ocean Princess and it was dropped from both of them.

I could understand why it was dropped from the Ocean Princess. Things were much more unstable back in 2001 or 2002 but I was very disappointed they dropped it from the Island Princess in 2004. It seems that any political or crime uprisings and the cruise line drops it. I can't blame them but it would be nice to see Cartegena. It is supposed to be a beautiful city.

I just wouldn't buy anything that looked like baking soda.

Take care,
Mike

We sailed on the Island Princess October 2007 through the Panama Canal--FANTASTIC CRUISE !!!! We stopped in Cartagena and really enjoyed the port. We were there probably 25 years ago and boy has it changed. But we took a taxi on our own and felt very safe.
