795 Cartagena (Colombia) Cruise Reviews

We were left w/locals but they weren't of any help. After our emerald mines tour, we asked where we should go and we were told anywhere we wanted to go

This was by far our favorite port -- We explored independently, bought emeralds and learned to make chocolate at the Chocolate Museum, which was fascinating and so much fun! Be aware that if you're planning on getting a taxi into town, you'll need to have cash before you leave the ship -- despite the enormous entertainment complex they've got set up, there is not a single ATM between the dock and downtown.

Great Old City. Been here many times. The port itself has a little zoo like area with macaws, flamingos, peacocks, etc and nice shopping and coffee.

We visited old city. This is a must see. We joined the Emerald princess shopping shuttle bus organized by the Effy store. You need to sign on their tour bus in the shopping talk. They charge $15 r/t per person paid at the end of the tour. We arrived at old city at around 9:15 and came back at 12:30. Once you are at old town you can join their shopping tour or do your own sightseeing and meet at a designated spot (church) at 12:30pm. We did our own sightseeing and we did not take their shuttle back to port. We took a taxi back to pier and it cost us $10. Old city is nice to walk around. Make sure do your research before you come so you know where to visit. I saw merchants came to me asked me to buy stuffs. We just said no thank you and they did not bother us. Read Less

The old city is cool, but you could probably do with a can ride into town and avoid paying for a tour. The port itself has a really cool animal exhibit with monkeys, birds, anteaters, and other wildlife which is free to roam around.

The city overview was good, be prepared for a lot of noise and heat. The walking tour was hard to hear, but the old city is beautiful

The old town is wonderful - colourful and chaotic are the words that come to mind. You have to get a taxi there as it is about an hour walk. Taxis inside the port are a fixed USD20, which is extortionate. We walked just outside the port ... Read More
The old town is wonderful - colourful and chaotic are the words that come to mind. You have to get a taxi there as it is about an hour walk. Taxis inside the port are a fixed USD20, which is extortionate. We walked just outside the port entrance and negotiated a USD10 price for us and another couple to share (USD5 per couple). A lovely day can be had just wandering the Old Town and the Getsemani district. I highly recommend the Colombian beer, which can be had for about 20% of the price of beer on the ship. Read Less

Private tour of both the new and old city of Cartagena. Stopped to have arepas with local street vendor. Excellent tour at a reasonable price.
