President No.8 Cruise Ship Reviews
Cruise Ship Rating: 4.9 out of of 5. Read the reviews from the Real Travelers on Cruisecritics.com, Tripadvisors.com and Lonelyplanet.com below to better help your cruise plan.
We did a 3 night cruise on the Yangtze from Chongqing to Yichang with President Cruises. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The Presidential Suite was vacant so we negotiated an upgrade from our standard cabin…was well worth the extra expense. Plenty to see cruising down The Yangtze with the spectacular natural scenery of The Three Gorges a real highlight. Some of the new infrastructure that has been built along the river has to be seen to be believed…extremely expansive (and high) bridges and The Three Gorges Dam are engineering wonders.

One of the highlights of our China Yangtze trip was a 5 day/4 night cruise on the Yangtze River on the ship, President Prime. The reason we chose this ship is because all cabins have a balcony, yet the price for the cruise was more than reasonable.
The ship is very new, and perhaps that contributes to the very attractive interior design. We had reserved the least expensive twin deluxe cabin which had two comfortable beds, good closet space, an unexpectedly spacious bathroom, and a balcony that easily accommodated two chairs comfortably.
There is plenty of time to sit on the sundeck and watch the huge cliffs slide quietly by on each side of the ship; or to spot goats on steep hillsides; or indulge in a glass of wine on your private balcony and listen to the lap of the water against the hull of the ship. But there was also plenty to do, both on board ship and in the shore excursions. I watched an interesting demonstration of acupuncture and reflexology; there was Tai Chi on deck at the crack of dawn each morning (although I never actually made it to that!); demonstrations of Chinese art and painting.
I will say that our cruise on the Yangtze River was anything but boring, and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

We really enjoyed the Yangtze cruise and would suggest it to anyone and most likely will even go again.
The best part of our cruise was the new ship that we were on, the President Prime. It really was a luxury ship and I was glad that we choose that ship. The price was fantastic and included all food and an activity each day. The cabins were spacious and pleasant to be in, about 35sqm (bigger than some hotel rooms. The private bathroom was modern and spacious. Each room had a private balcony with 2 chairs.
I would suggest watching the progression through the locks (even though for us it was after midnight). The locks are an impressive system and it was amazing to be inside seeing how it worked.
