We're supposed to fly into Santiago and board a cruise ship out of Valparaiso in 2 weeks. Neither the airlines nor the cruise line have cancelled despite US warnings for travelers to curtail travel to the area. Does anyone know how the city of Valparaiso did during the quake and it's aftermath?

We are also watching this closely as we also leave from there in two weeks. We are also interested to know regarding the intercontinental hotel in Santiago as we are scheduled to stay there the night before the start of the cruise.

I spoke to the people at the Santiago Park Hotel which is in the Providencia District this morning. They said there were no problems with the hotel and felt that most problems within the city should be cleared up within the week. Lan Air is expecting flights to be going into Santiago Airport and passengers will be accommodated in a tent terminal. No word on the cruise yet, although the ship is on the way from Buenos Aires. It left on Sunday for Santiago. Not sure about the status of the cruise terminal in Valparaiso.

Thanks for your efforts. It looks as if Norwegian Sun will still be running as scheduled as spoke to them and they said "nothing new". Carnival is in Valparaiso today so suspect that they at least have temporary arrangements.
See you onboard.
