Why Choose this Ship?

I enjoyed the screw how r u v it could have been one or two days shorter. The scenery is lovely. the boat is nice and the cabins are all in good condition. The food was average with lots of Western choices. Staff are wonderful.

Cruised 4 days on the Yangtze Gold 8. Many good excursions. Very good food. Noisy as compared to ocean cruises.

New ship, nice cabins, food is OK, but don't expect too much western food on the boat (my biggest complaint). The scenery is nice, but be careful of weather.....we went during a perfect week.

The first morning had a great excursion, cost 280 rmb each, but worth it. The lesser 3 gorges are also very nice, you take 2 smaller boats on that one. I suggest starting in Yichang and going up river- it is 4 nights, you end up in Chongqing, where you can stay a night or two. Much more to do in Chongqing than in Yichang!

An amazing cruise from the 3 gorges dam, the wolds largest hyroelectic project on the beautiful Yangtze Gold Cruise.

This trip was absolutely amazing, scenery was unbeliveable through the gorges, something different every day on this 4 days cruise.

Dress code

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for the good question. Usually dressing onboard Yangtze River cruises is not very formal, and a suite and tie for a man or an evening dress for a woman is not strictly required. Just wear comfortable to enjoy the vacation. However, avoiding dressing too casual like jeans, round-neck shirts, shorts, slippers, and so on is OK.

Have a nice day!
