Hi Everybody I was just looking at Oriana's world cruise and dreaming a little and I have noticed that she is docking at Okinawa for three hours for "clearance only" anybody know what this is and what it's for.

Could be advanced clearance : customs, immigration, port health etc for Japanese coastal ports on Intinerary to save hassle at each port of entry.
