1.Our cruise ship is in Xiamen 7am-6pm, one day only,

can we apply for a 72 hour free transit or do we need to get an entry visa?
2.We disembark the cruise ship in Shanghai and stay in Shanghai for 3 nights in a hotel. Can we apply for a 144 hour free Transit at the port or what is the procedure?

1. You are not eligible for the 72 hour free transit in Xiamen because you enter China by cruise ship instead of plane.
2. If you go to Shanghai directly from Xiamen, you won't qualify for the 144 hour free transit in Shanghai.
Based on the situation, you need to apply for a visa before your departure.
