What Our Customers Say about Century Legend?

"Yangtze River cruise - geat experience"

We, a multi-generation family of 9, enjoyed our Century Legend Yangtze River cruise very much. The cabins, food, service and shore excursions are all great. Riley from Chengdu Bamboo International Tours was awesome. Our trip went very smooth with her help. Highly recommended.

“Three day cruise on the Yangtze River aboard Century Legend organised by Yanny”

We would definitely recommend Yanny if you want very efficient organisation of the tour. They responded to questions by email very promptly. We enjoyed the tour very much but were also definitely happy that we did the upgrade of cabin to the 5th deck and dining in the smaller VIP dining room on the 6th deck. Private tables and much quieter than larger dining room on 2nd deck because the cruise was 80% chinese. Staff on board were extremely helpful and courteous, most spoke English. Well equipped boat with small gym, swimming pool, spa, cinema, quiet reading room, 2KTV rooms. Very enjoyable and would recommend.

We had wished for sometime to take a cruise on the Yangtze River, in China. We did it this past April. We booked our cruise and we were very happy with all the arrangements provided by Yangtze River Cruises. Our travel consultant, Mr. Wonder Wang, was very helpful throughout the whole process. As for the cruise itself, the ship, the Century Legend, had a very good stateroom (larger than regular cabins on sea cruises), the food was good and entertainment and the cruise stops were also very satisfying. We only wished the cruise was longer. Three nights is too little.

“Fabulous Cruise up the Yangtze River aboard Century Legend”

Cruise arranged by our agent Wonder at Yangtze River Cruise was fabulous, he provided extremely efficient and professional service and went over and above expectations including purchasing rail tickets and arranging delivery to our hotel. When booking on line confidence, reliability and integrity is what you want and Wonder certainly exceeded our expectations and made the process so easy.

This cruise should be on everyone's bucket list, Century Legend is fabulous, deluxe cabin as good as 5 star ocean cruise lines, with plenty of variety of western food and salads...the staff delightful and extremely helpful. Couldn't recommend highly enough, and will definitely use when next we visit China.
