About Cartagena (Colombia)

You're in for a big treat if you've booked a Caribbean or Panama Canal cruise with Cartagena on the itinerary, as this lovely old town and resort on Colombia's Caribbean coast is quite deservedly the country's most popular tourist destination.

There, you'll find everything a cruise passenger's heart could desire: a fascinating -- and often dark and bloody -- history embedded in ancient forts, churches and palaces; a walled town filled with exquisite 16th- and 17th-century Spanish colonial architecture; soft beaches; world-class snorkeling and scuba diving reefs; delightful restaurants; and enough shops to capture your interest without the place feeling like one gigantic mall.

Your only regret, as your cruise ship steams away at the end of the day, will be that you didn't have longer to explore.

    Vision of the Seas - Royal Caribbean International

    Pros

    Crew works hard to bring the fun; a smaller size ship means it's easier to navigate

    Solid option for a value cruise, but set expectations if you're used to bells and whistles
