We are British, so the rules may be different, but thought I'd post anyway.

We have just booked onto a cruise with Swan Hellenic which takes in Jordan, Egypt, and, Turkey. I enquired about visa requirements, and was told that the cruise line will take care of everything with a 'group visa' and just charge it to our on board account. Maybe the same approach is taken by the cruise lines for other nationalities.

Happy cruising in 2010,
