Hi Kimanjo,Thanks for your report. I am arriving SCL Santiago Airport on 1/2/2020. My plan was to use the convenient TurBus or Pullmen Bus from the airport, to go to the Alameda Bus Station, and stay at the Ibis Santiago Stacion Central, which is right next to the TurBus/Pullman buses that goes to San Antonio cruise port. Have you seen any signs of riots at the area of the bus station, its closure, or buses not running due to road blocks, etc.? Any advice appreciated ! Su
Since no one answered you yet, I hope my interpretation of the itinerary may offer you some hint. But, best to call the cruise line/ agent to see if you can get a definite answer. You may need to call a few times to different agents to get the right answer. Based on my prior experience on another cruise line to a different itinerary: The first night , you can check in and board the ship, use it as a hotel while it stays in the harbor. This is a good alternative to the expensive hotels in Tokyo and may suit your flight arrival schedule better, depending on where you are flying from. Some passengers can choose to embark ship on the 2nd day of the itinerary, and the ship sails that evening. Hope my input gives you a start , as you probably are looking for air tickets. I had traveled to Narita Airport a few times. I found the train or airport transfer bus (called "Limousine Bus")are very efficient and comfortable to use. Enjoy your journey .
