The Celebrity cruise, itself, was good, as usual. Going in & out of Chinese customs & immigration is ridiculously long. Boarding in Shanghai was unorganized & chaotic both on the part of Celebrity & the locals. Beijing customs getting on & off the ship....hours ( this was not in any control of Celebrity). We booked an independent Beijing tour, so we had to wait for all the people booked to get off the ship & go through immigration. The tour was suppose to leave at 9AM, we could not leave till 11:30. Other ports (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong) were no problem with immigration. We really enjoy the enrichment and port lectures. Most of the Asian ports are not close to the cities you think you are stopping at. You need transportation to get to Shanghai (45min drive), Beijing (2+ hours), Seoul (1 hour), Taipai (1 hour). Jeju is spread out nature sites, not much in the little town of Jeju. Hong Kong & Nagasaki get off the ship & public transportation is right there.

Be prepared for long Chinese immigration procedure
