This ancient Monastery located at the top of a hill can be seen from any point in Cartagena and in turn, it offers a privileged view of this incredible city. Built at the beginning of the XVIIth century, as a humble wooden chapel,. but later replaced by a more solid construction that was fortified two centuries later. It is still inhabited by monks and was used several times as a military fortress due to its strategic location. A chapel dedicated to teh virgin de La Candelaria, patron saint of Cartagena and a colonial museum can also be visited. Enjoy the flower filled patio and the views that stretch all over the city and wander through the cool patio and interior of the convent. Then continue to San Felipe de Barajas Fortress for a photostop, and continue on for a guided walk through the magical walled city. Here, the Spanish colonial architecture is some of the most impressive and best preserved in South America. You will then continue on to the Palace of the Inquisition. The aim of the Inquisition was to judge crimes against the Catholic faith and this building is the most important example of civilian architecture in eighteenth century Cartagena. The return drive to the port will pass through the residential neighborhood of La Manga which is noted for it's hodge podge of architectural styles many from the late 19th and early 20th century. One of the more interesting influences is Islamic, brought by the many immigrants to northern Colombia from Middle East countries such as Lebanon and Syria.

The ship glides down the canal with inches to spare, through locks that raise and lower it like a toy. Along the way it crosses enormous Gatun Lake, and the amazing Gaillard Cut, blasted out of a solid mountainside. One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the canal had an enormous impact on shipping between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, replacing the long and treacherous route via the Drake Passage and Cape Horn at the southernmost tip of South America. A ship sailing from New York to San Francisco via the canal travels 5,900 mi, well under half the 14,000 mi route around Cape Horn. The concept of a canal near Panama dates to the early 16th century. The first attempt to construct a canal began in 1880 under French leadership, but was abandoned after 21,900 workers died, largely from disease (particularly malaria and yellow fever) and landslides. The United States launched a second effort, incurring a further 5,600 deaths but succeeding in opening the canal in 1914.
 Lunch: Lunch at leisure on board the ship in the Crystal Dining Room, the Lido Café, or the Trident Grill.
