Thanks for your question. The month of Nov-Dec 18 is the early winter time of China. Cold and wind occurs frequently along the Yangtze River, thus we suggest you to take your down jackets, heavy pants, heavy sweaters, scarves, etc. for you may want to go sightseeing on the sun deck or do some shore excursions. However, you won’t feel very cold onboard for central air-conditioner is well equipped in every cruise with an average temperature at around 26℃.

Thanks for your question! Usually, there is a hair dryer in the drawer of the cabin or bathroom onboard most of Yangtze River ships. If you can't find one in your cabin, you could get one from the staff at the reception desk.
Wish you a nice ship experience in China!
I'm travelling from Australia to china in April 2019 for my 50th Birthday, will i need to pack long pants & tops or will 3/4 be enough i do feel the cold.
Thank you for the question. I think you have chosen a great time for the cruise tour. Actually, spring is one of the best seasons to explore Yangtze River (another is autumn). The weather in April is getting warmer and warmer and more comfortable. However, it is still a little bit cold there, especially in the early morning and night. You’d better take light sweaters, jackets or coats with you. Considering getting a more convenient experience, you are highly recommended to wear comfortable shoes. As central air-conditioner is well equipped in every cruise with an average temperature at around 26℃ in the whole ship all year round, you can prepare some clothing according to your physical conditions.

Wish you a memorable birthday cruise experience in China!
Thank you again for your question. Actually, spring and autumn are two best traveling seasons for Yangtze River cruise in China, when the weather is most comfortable, the rainfall is the lowest and you could enjoy the really splendid sceneries of the Three Gorges and the Yangtze River. However, there would be some rainy days. Furthermore, a lot of people choose to enjoy the cruise during those periods, during April to early June and September to November. If you want to experience it with the lowest budget, winter is more suitable, during December to the next February. Also, summer time is also very good to spend some happy hour with the children in your family. You could tell us about your ideal time for traveling to the Yangtze, your group size, nationality, E-mail address, and some other requirements, and our professional travel consultant would answer you soon to tailor make a great Yangtze River cruise tour for you.
Have a nice day!
Thank you for the question. It is summer during June and July at the Yangtze River Three Gorges area. It usually is a little hot during day time, and there would be some rain. You could prepare some light clothes for summer and light coat or knitwear for time at night since there is wind on the river. You are highly recommended to prepare your umbrella and other rain gears like rain coat. However, as the whole cruise is facilitated with central air conditioner, you could feel cool and comfortable onboard during the Yangtze River cruise holiday!
Enjoy your cruising on the Yangtze!
Thanks for your question. Usually dressing code for captain's welcome and farewell party is not very formal. Such as, suite, tie, evening dress, etc. are not strictly required. You can dress as comfortable as possible to enjoy your cruise tour, but too casual clothes like jeans, round-neck shirts, shorts, slipperier, and so forth are better to avoid.
Hope you enjoy the trip on the Yangtze River!
