Did that itinerary on the Mercury this past March, it is fabulous. We opted for the Celebrity tour, which was more expensive than that quoted for you.
You may want to get to the airport earlier than that however, flying out of Santiago, EVERY piece of luggage was unpacked/checked before you were allowed to proceed to the check-in counter. Lines were VERY long to say the least. We were on United, which when we got there was one of the smaller lines, but American's line was almost the length of the airport. The guards were however very efficient, but do not lock your luggage as (at least then) you will have to unlock it again.
Thanks for the advice. I have friends who said the airport lines were enormous as well. They have done this cruise before and are doing it again with us. (They must have liked it)
The flight actually departs at 11:59, roughly midnight. What time would you get to the airport?
