In 2015, Sandy and I achieved a long held dream for a visit to a destination a little different from our previous cruises. Passage through the Panama Canal.

The cruise began with the departure of our cruise ship from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and after some port visits to three different countries (Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico) and ended at San Diego, California.

Photo albums for the stops in the other locations are separate from this one. This album focus solely on the portion of the trip which saw us visiting Cartagena, Colombia and Panama City.

Cartagena, Colombia was our first stop on this cruise. Docking there we had a shore excursion tour which had us visiting some historic areas of the old city which is Cartagena.
