Mostcruise lines, if not all, have cancelled Columbia for a stop. This is due to political unrest, and a State Department advisory. You can get further updates from their website. You should be able to get a revised itinerary by calling the cruise ship company. We stopped in Columbia on our way through the Panama Canal in early April. We didn't get off the ship. Armed guards with "man hungry" guard dogs were waiting for people to reboard the ship. It wasn't a pretty sight. We have still and video pictures. State Department had put out the warning 8-10 days before we were there, and many, including ourselves, were very unhappy that the cruise line brought us in there. There's many other safer options. Enjoy your cruise, wherever they take you.
