Cruise Map & Itinerary


Cruise Introduction

First NavigationLatest RenewLength
2013-146.8 m

Similar to the deluxe President 7, the President 8 has the same state-of-the-art design. It is a new cruise ship on the Yangtze River, which had its maiden voyage in April 2013. The President 8 is a large cruise ship with a length of 146.8 meters.

There are three kinds of cabins on the President 8: 215 luxury standard rooms, 13 luxury executive rooms on the top deck, and 2 presidential suites at the fore of the third deck. 100 of the standard rooms can be upgraded into triple rooms for families.

The ship may depart from Fengdu because of low water levels at Chongqing. Passengers are transferred from Chongqing to Fengdu by bus (4 hours) for boarding in the event of insufficient docking depth at Chongqing.
