Favorites included the Bonaire Snorkeling on uninhabited island, the Panama Canal Expansion tour, and the trip into the Embria Indian Village.
Windstar cruises are one of the best; great food, service and crew, However, on this itinerary could have done without Santa Marta with more time in Cartagena Columbia...many aboard felt the same. The Cruise Director on this ship was a bit "stiff" on his presentations of the ports, sharing only history and maps; should have highlighted some interesting things to do and places to go in each port, other than the published excursions.
The Bristol Panama Hotel was a great post cruise stayover and located perfectly to all city sites. I had prepaid my transportation to the airport on Dec 11 thru Windstar and had a notice that my pickup time would be 3PM; However, and for whatever "hicup" occured they did not show and the hotel kindly got me a cab and paid the transfer cost.....probably need to follow up on this one
