Port Information

The official language in Shanghai is Mandarin Chinese, but you may hear many other dialects and variations. English is not widely spoken, so if you venture away from the port on your own, it’s best to have your destination and cruise port written down in Chinese to show to taxi drivers. The official currency is the yuan (or RMB). ATMs are plentiful, and you can also exchange money at banks by showing your passport.
