Update on Star Princess departure from Valparaiso, Chile

Update on Star Princess departure from Valparaiso, Chile

Star Princess set sail from Valparaiso tonight at approximately 9 pm local time. She is scheduled to arrive at the port of Ushuaia at 8 am on Monday, March 8.

This delayed departure does require us to alter the remainder of the itinerary. Regrettably, we will be dropping the ports calls of Punta Arenas and Stanley, and the scenic cruising of Cape Horn. The new itinerary will continue to call in Ushuaia on March 8, Montevideo on March 12 and Buenos Aires on March 13. For details of the times in each port, please contact Princess Reservations at 1-800-PRINCESS.

Passengers who were unable to join Star Princess in Valparaiso may continue to secure alternate flight arrangements and join the ship at one of the ports on the new itinerary. Outbound messages have been sent to our passengers over the past few days advising them of this option. If you have made plans to join the ship, please contact Princess Reservations with your flight schedule and planned port of embarkation.

Saturday morning’s earthquake was a devastating event, and our thoughts are with those in Chile who were affected. We thank our passengers for their patience and understanding over the past few days.
