Hello everyone I need some advice with transportation from our hotel in Santiago (Sheraton four points staying here the night of 19th March) to the port of Valparaiso on the 20th March. We are taking the Rotterdam on the 20th but we are concerned that we have not left ourselves enough time to get to Valparaiso and maybe take a short excursion around the port. We have seen several posts about this but are still confused. Is it preferable to take a bus, private car, taxi or take a tour. We underestand the buses cannot accommodate passengers with lots of luggage. Would the hotel be able to arrange our transportation. Please advise. Many thanks. Zeeta
Firstly, you need to check with the cruise line about check-in. I took the Buenos Aries to Valpariso cruise in March 2002, we flew home from Santiago.
When we disembarked in Valpariso, Celebrity WAS NOT checking in passengers at the ship. They were being checked in at a hotel in Santiago, then put on a bus and taken to the ship. There was no set up for check in at the ship at all, cause I thought it odd that there would be no way to do this.
