What Customers Say About Yangtze Cruise Ships
I cruised the Yangtze River in China for three nights in Sept 2011. The entire ship smelled like bad curry initially. My cabin had a strong musty odor. I had to febreze the entire cabin!
The cabin was large and had a good sized sitting room, separate bedroom, and bathroom. The food was good although the lines for the breakfast and lunch buffet were very long. The excursions were fair.
Laundry was standard international hotel prices - about $10 AUS for a pair of pants - as a result, very few passengers seemed to use the laundry service, and seemed to rinse things out themselves.
The staff are lovely, and multi-talented - they are required to undertake their regular duties, and perform in the entertainment at night!
Is it a wise choice to participate the Yangtze River cruise?
Most comments about this cruise on TA are negative. You pay big dollars to come to China not to sit in a boat for 3-4 days looking at trees go by. Maybe in a very long trip it can be a relaxing break but there are laso other options for this.
Before the Dam at least you'll see some sights. After the Dam not much.
Depends how long you are spending in China. If you want a quick hit of the Yangtze you can take the Hydrofoil ( but it is not made for sight seeing ). From the hydrofoil you can opt to disembark at the Three Gorges. The hydrofoil no longer runs from Chongqing to Yichang and you have to depart from Wanzhou.
There are some wonderful sights to see as day trips from Chongqing. The surrounding areas of Chongqing city are not really know to foreign tourists but they are stunning. There is enough to keep you occupied for 4 or more days - just don't go there is summer because it's too hot!
