Royal Caribbean Cruise
February 26th - Mar 10th, 2011
Feb 26th - our drive from Panama City was lovely…this time of year it is dry
where we live with no rain so driving to Colon, on the Caribbean side it
becomes lush and green because it does rain on this side. Arrival to the
Port of Colon by 1:30 and by 2 we are in our room. Our room is a junior
suite, in fact the same room as the last cruise.
Colon is not the prettiest port so there is not really that much to do here.
There is a strip mall next to us where you can buy souvenirs and use the
Our first night at sea is usually the roughest as we cross from Colon to
Cartagena. The Captain is booting it to get us in early the next morning so
we have a day to spend in this beautiful city. However because the seas were
so rough this time he decided we would leave a bit earlier so he could slow
down a bit for the next stop which would be Montego Bay on the 29th, so we
had a full day at sea after Cartagena.
