Please note:

1. Please note that all arrival and departure times, shore excursions and lectures are subject to change due to weather, river conditions and permission from the navigational authorities.

2. The cruise company will arrange the same fabulous sightseeing if the prearranged sites cannot be visited in a particular case.

3. There are many stairs to climb up to Fengdu Ghost City and reach the top of Shibaozhai Pagoda. Comfortable shoes are highly recommended to visit the two sites.

4. The OPTIONAL shore excursion needs extra charge. You have the final say whether you take it or not. And the optional sites will be visited depending on the number of travelers who want to go.

5. The OPTIONAL shore excursions are prepared based on the number of visitors who want to go. You can visit if there are 30 or more people interested (the number of visitors may be adjusted based on the real situation). You have the final decision where to go or not on your own. If yes, tell the reception desk who would register for you and receive your pay in site. The ARRANGED shore excursions are included in your quotation, so you could visit the sites without extra charge. However, if you do not visit the sites, the fees of arranged shore excursion sites are not refunded. If you do not visit the shore excursions, you could stay on the ship to enjoy some leisure time. And for your safety, you are not allowed to leave your ship on your own.
