Why Choose this Ship?
A well-appointed older boat, in the high middle of the cruise boats on the Yangtze. Service was excellent. Rooms were well prepared and well-appointed. Balcony for every cabin. Free WiFi in the bar. Numerous PA system explanations and side trip options. Food was very good and well presented. Our trip had about 60% capacity so we never felt crowded.
Be prepared for overcast and hazy weather. Photos of clear weather must be taken on those few days per year that are clear. Still, the Dam, the locks (worked perfectly), and side gorges, and more were worth it all.

We took the 4-day tour on the Victoria Selina from Chongqing to Yichang. The vessel had recently been remodeled to add a separate dining area on the upper level, which was used only by our tour group and one other, for a total of about 40 people. Thus, the dining service and food was excellent and the conditions ideal for comfort and viewing while eating.
The best part of the tour was the 3 Gorges, which are truly spectacular. Thankfully, the weather was not as smoggy as upriver at Chongqing, so the sights were marvelous. Unfortunately, the loudspeaker system on the front observation deck was hard to understand with a less-than quality English from the river guide.
The cabins were modest but comfortable and certainly comparable to any other river cruise. The service was excellent including complementary laundry, shoe-shine and two bottles of bottled water every day. The shows after dinner were entertaining. There was also free computer/Internet access on the boat while in those areas of the Yangtze that were conducive to WiFi.
Even though the river has changed with the advent of the 3 Gorges dam, it is still a rather spectacular trip if you have the time.
