When cruising South America, you have two options in cruising the coast of Chile. The first option is to depart from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and dock at Valparaiso, Chile. From Valparaiso the trip to Santiago is approximately forty-five (45) minutes to one and half (1-1/2) hours over the mountains. The second option is the reverse and you will see the Chilean Fjords, Argentina, and parts of Brazil. Using frequent flyer points will save you on either of these cruises.
