This was our first port in China and it took hours for the customs to clear the ship. Narrowing our time off the ship to just 2 hours but I think it was a port stop used for the purpose of clearing customs- we were not warned about this and had booked a private tour for the day-

On this ship it is important to has a cabin centered in the ship. We did hit some rough waters and it is a small ship without the stabilizing system of the larger O ships. We also were called first for disembarking at ports.
