    In normal circumstances, no matter you take downstream or upstream Yangtze Cruises, you usually embark your ships at Chongqing Chaotianmen Port and Maoping Port. Check the exact ship for detailed boarding time. Also, it may do some adjustment for special events, like weather condition, level of water, river navigational conditions, annual maintenance of the Three Gorges Dam ship locks, etc.

    To make everything go smoothly, please call the ship (the phone number we’ll show you clearly in the Confirmation Letter) one day ahead or at least in the morning on the boarding day. Or, you can also check your mailbox on the boarding day or one day before for the updated boarding information our travel consultant delivered. Please make sure your phone can be called through in China, so that we can also call you if there is any urgent change.
