Hello Paula,

Thank you for the good question. Yes, you could play Mahjong onboard the Yangtze River cruise. If you could find some friends or new people who know how to play the Mahjong in American way, you could enjoy some time together. And if there are not enough people you could find, you could also try to learn how to play it in the Chinese way, and the cruise would arrange the guide or another cruise staff to teach you and spend the fun time with you.

Have a happy cruise trip on the Yangtze River!
