Celebrity to Resume Cartagena Calls

Colombia's President Alvaro Uribe Velez and Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Chairman and CEO Richard Fain have announced that Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International will resume port calls to Cartagena, Colombia, starting in April 2007. The company last called in Cartagena in 2002. In the past, security concerns kept many lines from calling at Colombia. Fain said: "We are grateful to President Uribe and his administration for the lengths to which they have gone to provide a safe and satisfying experience for our guests." Celebrity Cruises will make 24 visits to Cartagena: 11 on Zenith, seven on Constellation, six on Infinity and four on Summit. Royal Caribbean will make eight calls at Cartagena over the 2007–2008 season: five on Brilliance of the Seas, two on Radiance of the Seas and one on Serenade of the Seas.
