Too many things crowded into too short time -- naval museum, Inquisition museum, chocolate museum, Pablo Claver church, emerald store -- most of these places were way too crowded.

We booked a hop on hop off bus tour through NCL. Good value, but the walled city is flooded with refugees, which ruined the experience. Its a mess there.

Our guide was informative and spoke clearly and loudly. We did everything the tour said we would do except walk on top of the wall (maybe due to time constraints with slower passengers?)

Too much walking with little to see. Tour guide Fabian was ok but hard to understand. Bathroom facilities were awful. Basically a waste of time.

Cartagena is lovely. The guide really knew his history. Holland America would do well to do an overnight here as we were really shortchanged for time. A place I would seriously think of coming back to.
