Hi Paul. I so enjoy your cruise blogs. You really have a gift for bringing us all onboard with you and Edward. Your posting about the onboard staff was lovely and very heartfelt.
What are your plans for Cartagena? I lived in Colombia for eight years and often visited the city. A few years ago our ship docked there and I was so excited to return. Wow, had the city grown! Since my husband had never been there, we did a private tour in a well air conditioned car. Be prepared as it can be extremely hot and humid. Bring aqua...no martinis! Have fun.
You sure picked a good time to be away from home. Weather is dismal.
