    Visa requirements for China

    Cruise passengers transiting in mainland China for less than 24 hours do not need a visa provided they have confirmed travel to a third country or region. Shanghai, Beijing and Tianjin have a 144-hour visa exemption for transit passengers arriving or departing by sea or air and exiting to a third country. Foreign tourists arriving in Shanghai on a cruise ship can stay in China for up to 15 days without a visa provided they leave the country on the same cruise ship. Passengers must be travelling on tour groups (minimum two people) arranged by travel agencies that are registered in China and the companies must submit details of their groups to inspection authorities at least 24 hours before the ships arrive in Shanghai to be eligible. So I would say P&O are correct with the tours by us option Travel Agency are also correct as you can apply for the 144 hour visa exemption

    MSC ?? do I or dont I book

    we are on our third MSC cruise this time from miami on a carribean cruise. When you get the offer that comes through of a balcony for an inside cabin price it cant be beatan. As has been said by others if you pay the extra for say RCI and others then yes it does seem less remember on Bellisima you do get cirque de soleil show that yes you have to pay for but for that sort of show you would expect it.

    MSC boarding times

    When we went from Valencia it was get on the bus go to the ship and get on Mind you we were one of the first to arrive at the Port that was due more to the flight times than anything else. At Venice we were given a boarding number and had to wait till the number was called.

    MSC boarding times

    you'll be fine for 13.00 as sammy says they do a staggered boarding with a numbered system so as long as the ship is ready for boarding then they will board you by numbers

    Passport change

    The visa talk won't come in till at least 2020 as the system isn't even up and running yet also it depends on how the EU deems Uk citizens after brexit as the visa will only apply to visa exempt third country nationals so as with anything it all depends on the deal or no deal scenario. Also there are no plans at present to charge EU member states nationals a fee to come to the UK
