Thank you for your suggestions. We'll be doing Rio to Valparaiso on Mercury departing 1/6/02. We have purchased a 2-day Rio pre-cruise stay, at the Sheraton. We just got word from Celebrity that our Tierra Major trekking shore excursion in Puerto Montt, Chile has been cancelled, due to the weather conditions there. We decided that due to the short time in the ports, and the limited options, the Celebrity excursions were our best options. We have already purchased most of our shore excursions on the Celebrity web site. Tickets for the excursions are to be delivered to our cabin on the day of embarkation.
We're looking forward to an exotic voyage.
