Yangtze Cruise Tips from Leo

  1. When is the best time to have a Yangtze River cruise?

    The "best" depends on which you are more concerned about, weather or price. To most visitors,the bestRed Leaves in Yangtze River Autumnseasons for Yangtze Cruise should be the Spring and Autumn, namely, April to June and September to November when the weather is cool and comfortable, neither cold nor hot.

  2. Which cruise line should I choose?

    There are different cruise lines to cater different customer demands. Cruising between Chongqing and Wuhan on deluxe ships is the most popular for tourists.

  3. Should I take a upstream or downstream cruise?

    Upstream means sailing from lower part of river to the up to the higher part of the river.Less cost, and it usually costs 10%-30% lower than that of downstream and more time onboard for leisure activities, Chinese folk customs, etc. Downstream mean sailing from higher part of the river to the lower part of the river. There is enough time to enjoy the shore excursions because all scenic sites are arranged in the daytime.

    Just returned to Singapore one hour ago. Sent my message in WhatsApp.

    I was cut off from the rest of the world because Google, gmail and Facebook are blocked in China.

    I have been in many cruises before in Europe, US and South East ASIA but the Century Legend is most outstanding.

    I understand that it was built in 2013 and it looks very well maintained and I am impressed with what the Chinese are doing with the cruises.

    I have read many reviews of horror stories on Chinese cruises and I held my breath when I decided to join the Yangtze 3 gorges cruises.

    Apart from the incident with the porter who demanded 100 CNY for carrying my luggage I was well taken care of by the hotel manager when I complained that it was so hot in my cabin.

    3 times a day a room attendant will visit my room to ensure that it is kept at a comfortable temperature with an Air cooler .

    I met some passengers in the train from Yichang to ZJJ and the complained how terrible the cruise was with the Yangtze Gold and Victoria cruises. In fact I passed by the Yangtze Gold and Victoria cruises and they all look so old and badly maintained.

    My Cabin was very comfortable after they lowered the temperature with air cooler and the meals were civilised. No need to rush for food like the other boats and no need to upgrade to a different dining room.

    The other gripe is that it was raining everyday and we could not admire the beauty of the 3 gorges.

    I made some good friends in the cruise and we did things together.

    The next trip will be going upstream in the 3 gorges and hopefully there will be another new boat and definitely NOT SEPTEMBER!!

    None of the passengers I met had been swindled by the porters because their travel agent arranged the porterage. Perhaps you can think of Creative ways to provide porter service for dependent Travellers who booked thru you.

    Or you advised the independent traveller about porters upon arrival @ boat because there are many flight of stairs to climb whereas I saw travel Sgt st drive near the dick with the luggage

    Dear Leo,

    Hello, wish you well. Thanks for your concern. We were back just last night, and glad that we return yesterday, otherwise, we shall need take a train back to HKG instead of a flight as we are having the Typhone today this morning - just pass by 50 KM from HKG. Very strong wind with heavy rain and all flights are cancelled from 6 AM - 5 PM today.

    Taking the opportunity, I would like to thank you for your kind arrangement with our Yangtze River Cruise booking. All is fine and we enjoyed very much for the whole cruise. Accommodation on V Sophia was comfortable, same as what we expected and the food is wonderful and we had nice meals that meet with our taste. The Captain is a nice man and we are glad to have the chance of greeting to him. All other crews on board perform their professional service that make us so comfortable and relax. It is a memorable river cruise.

    Once again, thank you so much for everything you had done to organise our cruise.

    All the best wishes.

    Dear Leo,

    Please excuse my delay reply your email.

    I would like to thank you for your help with the organisation. I was very satisfied with the cruise and can give my most positive feedback to the whole team of Century Sky, who was very friendly, attentive and helpful. I was impressed by the entertainment program organized during the cruise. The meals were also very good, diverse and delicious and the restaurant team was very attentive and friendly. I would like to specially thank the room service, as the room was always very clean and in excellent order.

    All in all I was very happy with the cruise and I will definitely further recommend the Century Sky.

    Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Best regards,

    Wonderful! Only thing that would've improved it would be free wifi. In an age where we are very used to free wifi, I don't want to have to pay!Anyway, the crew were absolutely great and the room was very comfortable. :smiley:
