I am really surprised that your TA is not giving you all this informatin - imagine if you arrived in Shanghai and were refused entry because of no visa. So the simple answer is YES you do need a visa for Shanghai and for any other Chinese port you may be visting (except Sanya) which is covered by a group cruise visa - so if you are going to Shanghai and Xiaman you need a dual entry visa. This is the website you need: http://www.visaforchina.org.uk/visaen/visaView.html?method=readNotify¬ifyId=1118#Menu=ChildMenu2.

We have just returned from a cruise that included China you were not even allowed to enter Chinese waters with out a visa, some people were put off the ship at ports before as they had no visa.

Yes, perhaps I should have written that 'you will be denied boarding in Singapore' if you do not have the Chinese visas.....that makes it pretty clear!

If you want to know what to do in each port please go to this site that I direct every one to - go to google and type 'cruise ports call boards' - click on the the first result will give you all the info under the appropriate PORTS section on the page under the section for Asia. Once you sign up you can search within each specific category.

Mr Walker - don't forget to sign up for the meet&mingle for your cruise - go to royalcaribbean.co.uk >contact us> FAQs > and then under the On Board section it tells you how. You will have to register (it is free). In a roundabout way it gets you to the same site as i directed you to below. Wellworth it.

Believe you now need multiple entry visas for this cruise as Sanya concession not available, use chinese visa service posted our application on a Friday and had visas returned following Friday total cost £94.50 each.

We went up to Deck 11 to where the pools were and some of the Bars to meet the rest of our group. The atmosphere was really good the sun was shining the music was on it was really nice and of course, I had a drink i...

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...
