Cruising in Panama
Aboard The Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas
7 night Southern Caribbean Cruise


Our next port of call was Santa Marta, Colombia. Again many things to do here like the city tour, or the botanical garden or just walking around and discovering for yourself. Santa Marta was founded by Rodrigo de Bastides in 1525. Quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino: Built in the 17th century, was the last home of Simon Bolivar, and today it is a house/museum in his honor. There are also other beautiful places to visit like the Cathedral and the Customs House.

Part of the fun of a cruise is that you have nothing to worry about. You arrive, unpack then enjoy and eat…so, that being said one must watch their weight, especially on this ship where there were so many places to eat and so many varieties of food that it still staggers me to think about. The ship has an excellent fitness room that faces out the front so you can walk on that treadmill for as long as you want and enjoy the scenery along the way. Below the fitness room there is a spa where you can get glammed up or totally vegged out. The choice is yours and every time we walked through it on our way to exercise it had the nicest floral fragrance.
