Princess reports this morning that the Cruise Terminal there is operational. However, air service in and out of Chile has, as we know, been affected by the recent earthquake. According to a Princess news release, "... we plan to keep Star Princess in Valparaiso for at least another 24 hours so our passengers who are unable to fly out, will be able to stay onboard until flight operations resume. Passengers who are already in Valparaiso will also be able to embark and stay on board the ship."
