Admire the marvelous Republican architecture of the Manga residential area, home to some of the most ornate mansions and beautifully sculpted homes of Cartagena.

Stop to take photos at the largest Spanish fort in the New World -- the Fort of San Felipe de Barajas, originally built in the 17th century.

It’s a 20-minute drive to the walled city; marvel at the plethora of colonial buildings and age-old fortifications around every corner, as well as the old church domes, the clock tower (symbol of the city), and the dazzling ocean views.

At the Navy Museum, take in a delightful display of Colombia’s history and culture during a folkloric show of traditional songs and dances (soft drink included).

Shop at the Las Bovedas handicraft shopping center, built in the late 18th century as a dungeon and munitions storage facility.

Enjoy a sightseeing drive through the modern residential areas of Bocagrande and Castillo Grande, famous for a wide variety of shops, restaurants and hotels, before returning to the ship.

Notes:

Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
