Colombia

Celebrity Equinox

Cartagena

sunny 85 °F

It's a hot sunny day in Columbia. As I had been here before, and had taken the grand tour of the Fort and surrounding city, we decided to not go off the ship. To me the city is worth about one stop. Since the dock is in the middle of the container port, there isn't even any shore side terminal to go shopping in. Perhaps Columbia will upgrade the stop in the future. We are tied up next to the Queen Victoria, which is sort of fun since I have some clients on board, also enjoying the sun. I am taking some clients to the Tuscan Grill Italian Steakhouse tonight, which is usually excellent. There is a cover charge of $25.00 for this restaurant. Tomorrow will be more interesting since we are taking a domed train car/bus excursion along the length of the Panama Canal - or at least a portion of it. I have heard from others that it's an interesting journey.

Celebrity Equinox

sunny 78 °F

The second sea day on the way to Cartegena Columbia. Another warm sunny Caribbean day. The highlight was the Captain’s Club party for returning guests which was well done. The Captain spoke and some of the entertainers performed. Spent an enjoyable 30 minutes talking to a couple from Liverpool England. We told some sea stories since he had spent 5 years in the Royal Navy in destroyers.
