President No.6 Cruise Ship Reviews
Cruise Ship Rating: 9.0 out of of 10. Read the reviews from the Real Travelers on yangtze-river-cruises.com, cruisecritics.com, tripadvisors.com below to better help your cruise plan.
The on board team (housekeeping, our waiters in the top dining room and especially Sid) on the President 6 were awesome, we were treated like royalty. Do take the option of the upgrade offered when first boarding the ship.
As we were about the only English speaking people on the boat, we had our own tour guide when going ashore. A special thanks to the team that arranged this (which was totally unexpected) and to the amazing tour guides.
Handy hint i learnt in going ashore in the searing heat - take an umbrella(for shade) and lots of water (the boat supplied us with addtional bottledwater at no charge when going ashore).

The company gave excellent service to our group of four senior folks embarking on an upstream Yangtze cruise on President No. 6. We then went to Chongqing to a world heritage site of rock carvings in Dazu. The English speaking guide was knowledgeable and helpful. Then we went to Guizhou province to visit Asia’s largest waterfall and the minority Miao people’s village and the houses perched on the mountain was quite a sight. The guide Jason arranged by the company was fluent in English and compassionate offering services beyond the usual standard of care. Further the 5 star hotels chosen by the company met our expectations.

The ship, crew, food, cabins, scenery, excursions were all incredible. The smog was the only disappointing element. China will work it out and in years to come could have clean air.
We spent many hours on our balcony watching industry, towns and cities pass by, day and night. The highlight of the cruise, if we could pick just one, was the 5 ship locks at the 3 Gorges Dam. The ship arrived at midnight and we were on the top deck from then until 3:00am when we entered the 3rd lock. We probably would have stayed there until we left the 5th lock, but breakfast was at 6:00am on the final day so we could spend time at the dam.

One of the highlights of our China Yangtze trip was a 5 day/4 night cruise on the Yangtze River on the ship, President Prime. The reason we chose this ship is because all cabins have a balcony, yet the price for the cruise was more than reasonable.
The ship is very new, and perhaps that contributes to the very attractive interior design. We had reserved the least expensive twin deluxe cabin which had two comfortable beds, good closet space, an unexpectedly spacious bathroom, and a balcony that easily accommodated two chairs comfortably.
There is plenty of time to sit on the sundeck and watch the huge cliffs slide quietly by on each side of the ship; or to spot goats on steep hillsides; or indulge in a glass of wine on your private balcony and listen to the lap of the water against the hull of the ship. But there was also plenty to do, both on board ship and in the shore excursions. I watched an interesting demonstration of acupuncture and reflexology; there was Tai Chi on deck at the crack of dawn each morning (although I never actually made it to that!); demonstrations of Chinese art and painting.
I will say that our cruise on the Yangtze River was anything but boring, and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

We really enjoyed the Yangtze cruise and would suggest it to anyone and most likely will even go again.
The best part of our cruise was the new ship that we were on, the President Prime. It really was a luxury ship and I was glad that we choose that ship. The price was fantastic and included all food and an activity each day. The cabins were spacious and pleasant to be in, about 35sqm (bigger than some hotel rooms. The private bathroom was modern and spacious. Each room had a private balcony with 2 chairs.
I would suggest watching the progression through the locks (even though for us it was after midnight). The locks are an impressive system and it was amazing to be inside seeing how it worked.
