Yangtze River Cruises

Many people thought that after the dam was built that the Yangtze River Cruises would cease running. Actually they have gotten better but business slowed a bit until this year as more people are aware of it now. The Gorge is still very high and the cruise is better than ever. It is a nice relaxing few days break during a China tour to cruise the Yangtze with daily activities, off boat sights, nightly entertainment and great meals or just relax on deck to enjoy the scenery and boat traffic on the river. Victoria Cruises, a U.S. owned line, is our choice of Lines however the Century Line shown above has introduced new boats one of which I sailed on recently and experienced their hospitality. Beware of tour operators who offer very low prices for cruises as there are many poor Cruise boats on the river as well with older boats and cleanliness issues. I recommend the U.S. Victoria Line, Century and the Century Line as your best choices. Prices vary from mid range to luxury suites. For more information on Cruising the Yangtze, contact me at  I have been on the Yangtze cruise 8 times to keep up with the changes in life along the Yangtze..
