Hi Xin Xin Deschner,
1. Sorry, I am not sure you will take a cruise travelling from China to Japan or just want transportation from China to Japan. There is only one cruise transportation from Tianjin to Japan, and it can only reach Kobe. The cruise departs at 23:00 every Friday. If you want to start the trip in late December, you can board at 19:00-20:00 on December 23th.
If you want to travel from China to Japan by cruise, you could choose Costa Cruise http://www.costachina.com/ (Chinese version). But the trip start from Shanghai, not Tianjin, and there is no cruise from China to Japan or Korea in December.
2. The price of the Tianjin-Kobe cruise depends on different type of seats. It varies from CNY1300 to CNY4550 per person.
3. Chinese can apply for visa at Embassy of Japan in China(日本驻华大使馆).
4. Sorry, there is no English version of Tianjin-Kobe cruise information. But if you need, you can search cruise information at this website http://www.tifeco.com.cn/jinshen/ship_02.htm (Chinese version only). And this is for Costa Cruise information http://www.costachina.com/rc/ships.html (Chinese version).
