Subsequent cruises were closed-loop from Seattle, so Victoria counted as a foreign stop since a DISTANT stop was not required on a closed-loop US port origin cruise.

What do these entail? How much are they (for the whole 14-nights)?
The wine packages on the website are exactly the same as what's offered by your server in the dining rooms. If you want 14 bottles of wine, you buy two 7-night packages. You can also select smaller packages; on our honeymoon a couple at our table bought a three-night package for a seven-night cruise.

I believe you are allowed to take two bottles off the ship with you through customs when you disembark at the end; I don't know if that's per person or not.

Jealous - enjoy your week! If our vacation $ didn't go to DCL, it would certainly go to WDW. I am waiting 'til the girls are brave enough to ride "the good rides" - eight years in Fantasyland is my limit!

Well DVC really does help. My free flights help. My premier pass is saving the day. Nice to see you on next years cruise as well.

Good Morning, Happy Cruisers!

Knee deep in packing boxes here, so barely any time to think about cruising.

The city has some interesting sights, like any other country keep your wits about you but for the most part the Colombians just want you to enjoy their country. The street vendors are a bit more aggressive than other places but not a big deal.

We will probably not do anything this time because we were just there, not because we don't feel safe. Any questions, feel free to ask.
That would be correct! Cartagena is a LOVELY city. We took a private tour hit the highlights, did some shopping, and had lunch. I didn't see one "drug smuggler, prostitute, or man with gun". Can't WAIT to go back.

Aruba is nice, but you can see it all in one day and if you've seen it once, you've seen it all.

Happy Day, All!

Oh, I didn't know that. Cool, thanks for sharing! I'll have to see if there are any threads about the tours there from previous cruisers.
