We just got a call from DCl and told us that the Mangrove Caves Eco Tour in Cartagena was canceled. It not on my itinerary any more and the Mangrove Caves Eco Tour and the Mangrove Show and lunch are both mark as sold out. Are we the only ones or did other people get canceled too

Maybe he was making sure the squirrels and birds would leave the nuts alone in the caravan.

Evelyn signed up for that but I have not been notified. Maybe Evelyn has.

Curiouser and curiouser. On the FB page for this meetup, someone said they received the same message about the Mangroves tour being cancelled, but it ended with saying the Port was cancelled.

Hmm, "oops" in the recording, methinks?

I was getting all excited that maybe the stop in Cartagena was cancelled. Maybe replaced with Aruba or somewhere more interesting with me. Nope. It's still on my itinerary with with the other half's tour. Oh well.

2 formal nights. They will be the first sea day and Cabo. One semi formal night. That will be the day after the canal.

I believe, and someone Please correct me if I'm wrong, that DCL can't cancel Cartagena without replacing it with another South American (or other "distant" foreign) port. They ran into trouble last summer with the ship transferring guests from one US city to another without a stop at a distant foreign port. We had booked a B2B Seattle /Vancouver/ LA, but they had us pick only one and had to cancel the other. Mexico/Canada or a Caribbean island are not considered "distant", according to maritime law?

Nope. They could replace with Aruba, Curacao, even go back to Costa Rica and have no problem. Yes I am sure. The 2011 cruise did not go to South America. We went to Aruba and Costa Rica.

Now that I think about it, this is the first WBPC that I will be on with DCL that stops in South America.

Ok, but where have the ports been on your other PCs? Am I correct in thinking that DCL would have to make another port stop if it cancelled the Cartegegna stop? Unless traveling through the canal itself counts as a distant port, our only other stops are CC and Mexico. From what I understood, those are not distant enough?

Well we have always stopped to get fuel outside of the canal. I do not know if that counts as a port stop. The others have stopped at Aruba and Curacao. 2011 also went to Costa Rica.
