Why Choose this Ship?
“Amazing scenery, comfortable accomodations”
We traveled on the Victoria Katarina which is a great choice. Rooms are very comfortable, every one with a small balcony and chairs. Buffet meals were excellent and the staff was very attentive and friendly - and talented as there are two shows provided by the crew during the cruise. Didn't participate in the optional Ghost City tour on the first day but did go on the Empress City optional tour on the second day - highly recommend the tour. Standard tour of Goddess Stream was amazing and not to be missed.

“China tour June 2016”
We joined MV Victoria Katarina in Chongqing for a four day cruise. At the docks at night in Chongqing all the boats big and small are brightly lit and so lovely to see like a night regatta.
We stopped at the Red pagoda in Shibaozhai which was great walking up to the town lined with street vendors and crossing the wobbly bridge. We climbed 100 steps on wooden stairs to the top of the pagoda and enjoyed the views around. We also took a small boat towards the Goddess Stream and we were entertained by the locals with singing and dancing and at some point joined them with the dancing. On board there is every night entertainment for us in the form of cultural dances and skits by the staff of MV Katarina. There were talks on the history of the Yangtze and a demo on alternative Chinese medicine. I tried acupuncture for the first time for forty pounds. The food was good and the staff are charming and friendly. We sailed through the Three Gorges Dam and we went by bus to admire the largest hydroelectric dam in the world-infamous for the number of people displaced to build it. All in all such an amazing experience and a bucketlist checked for me.

Thought I would just post something about the Yangtze cruise we just did. The river cruise itself was just wonderful. So lovely relaxing cruising along the river and seeing the views. We were on the Katarina Cruise boat and we were impressed with it. Though the cabins are not big but for 3 or 4 days this is fine. We did have a very small balcony to sit at and watch the world go by.
Going through the locks was very interesting and the sights during the day are wonderful. If you are doing this cruise take some food on board with you.
