Century Emerald Cruise Ship Reviews
Cruise Ship Rating: 9.0 out of 10. Read the reviews from the Real Travelers on Cruisecritics.com, Tripadvisors.com and Lonelyplanet.com below to better help your cruise plan.
We booked an upstream cruise through China Discovery/yangtze-river-cruises.com. We researched ships, agents, tours, etc. This cruise far exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect mix of relaxing and daily excursions. The views throughout the cruise are incredible - it's like being in a painting. Make sure you choose a cruise that goes through the locks. Certain times of the year, the water levels are not high enough and it sounds like some cruises required passengers to take buses instead. We were so happy to have an off-peak experience, no crowds.
The Century Emerald is a viking ship, so you get the luxury of a world luxury liner. And in December, it's run by a Chinese operator giving us a more Chinese experience. We were one of two western couples, all other passengers were asian. We would have liked an even longer cruise, and will consider doing this again but maybe starting further upstream. Standard rooms are suites with loveseat, desk, ample closet/storage. two bottles of water provided daily. Tiger from China Discovery was quite responsive and helpful in arranging not only the cruise, but transfers and other travel. And they quoted the best price on the cruise.

Compared to a regular cruise ship, everything on Century Emerald is reduced in size. There was a small gym and a few shops. On the other hand, it is easy to get anywhere in a few minutes with only 6 decks and room for 250 guests. Our stateroom was fairly good sized, comfortable and everything worked well. Housekeeping did an excellent job.
Entertainment on the ship is limited by its size. The same people who wait on your table dance in the show and model ethnic costumes. Still the entertainment was of acceptable quality. The food and restaurant service were very good. In fact, service throughout the ship was excellent.
