If it's any further help I have been to 4 different Mexican cruise ports, sailing from/to the USA, in recent years & as a Brit with a UK passport have never required an entry visa of any kind......Regards Wilba.

I think this is possibly what they are referring to ESTA which is the new part of the visa waiver program. https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov.

I would think it best if you ask the Foreign Office, or the Mexican Consulate / Embassy here in the UK or a Travel Agent of repute because I do not think it is as simple as Mr Wilba, to whom I owe some kisses, suggests. If you Google FMT Form, as I did, you will come up with a great deal of information such as:..... "An FMT is a tourist visa for people traveling to Mexico. Although this visa can potentially be valid for 180 days, the time assigned is at the discretion of the Immigration officer. Normally the time period is related to the purposes of your journey. Usually the visa is approved for a maximum period of 90 days if you arrive in Mexico by plane for a vacation, after which it can be renewed for an additional 90 days at any Mexican Immigration office. If you are crossing the border in an automobile, you can request the full 180 days. There is no guarantee that the full 180 days will be given." It may be that this only applies to US citizens but you have the time to explore before you go although I know from experience that the Mexican authorities can be slower than the Italian ones so some urgency might pay dividends.

FUNICULAR FUN IN BERGEN!

By Hannah Wilson

So on our recent Fjords cruise on Balmoral myself and Holly decided that having splashed out, quite literally, on the Rib Adventure in Eidfjord that we would just do our own thing in Bergen, get off the ship and wander around, however, just outside the cruise terminal we happened upon a Hop On Hop Off Bus Stop and decided that we would have a tour round Bergen on that, covering more ground. The tour takes around an hour and you get a good taste of the city, Norway’s second largest, all ...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
