Why Choose this Ship?
My 4.5 day (4 night) trip was excellent. The ship, Victoria Lianna, was very well appointed with excellent services and very helpful crew. Last year I did a cruise to S Korea on a huge 70,000 ton liner but the cabin on the Lianna was more comfortable AND had a view and balcony. (The only downside was that there was only one electrical outlet even though the cabin was for two people. These days you need at least two outlets to enable 2 smartphones/cameras to be recharged at the same time. The huge liner to S Korea had the same problem. PROVIDE MORE POWER OUTLETS!)
The included and extra tours off the boat were well organised and the guides were both well informed and had excellent English. Bear in mind that this trip goes through gorges so if you get off the boat you are going to have to climb a lot of steps. Pretty much every time we had to climb at least 300 steps. Be prepared!
Our tour organizer Wonder Wang was very helpful and prompt in replying to questions and various queries.
I thoughly recommend Victoria Cruises.

We enjoyed a 4 day/3 night Chongqing to Yichang cruise on the ship Victoria Lianna. The cruise passed through all of the gorges during the daytime on days 2 and 3, went through the locks of the Three Gorges Dam on the 3rd night, with an included excursion to the dam's visitor center on the 3rd morning.
The cruise includes a selction of tours that were included in the price and those that were optional. I missed the optional ones but did the others. The trip to the 3 Gorges Dam was a real eye opener, and the later that day, going through the locks to get passed the dam was even more fantastic. The tour of the 3 Lesser Gorges is beautiful as was the tour to the Ghost Town at Fend Du (which has nearly 400 steps so if your unfit or have mobility issues I'd advise you give this a miss).
The ship had very good facilities. Our standard cabin was fine, with two single beds, a bathroom, and a private balcony. The ship had several other outdoor decks for sightseeing forward and aft. It had an elevator serving all five decks. The meals were good, with a large buffet selection of both Chinese and Western dishes. There were interesting events each day in the lounge/bar area including lectures on the river, Chinese medicine, and tai chi, and variety shows by the crew, plus historical movies about China on the ship's video channel. The crew were very friendly and most or all spoke good English.

We spent 4nights and 3days on the "Victoria Lianna" river boat from "Yangtze River Cruises".
The boat has been refurbished last year and the quality of the accommodation was excellent with every cabin having an outside balcony and comfortable room with twin beds and a good bathroom.
The professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff was exceptional. Thank you to Dick, Steven, Rebecca and the entire crew.
The local guides however were all good and did not shout into their microphones. There were a few optional tours and we did take them up on two of these. They are a bit pricey but some of the proceeds do go to the locals who put on various performances.
The drinks on board are reasonably priced and there was a good choice of food either Chinese or Western for the three meals of the day.
We were given good commentaries along the river at certain points and there was plenty or nothing to do on board according to how much you wanted to participate in. They offered a tai chi lesson, the showing of several Chinese films (with English subtitles), a lesson in Mahjong, demonstrations of delicate painting of glass and crystal bottles from the inside, a lesson in Mandarin and a talk on the workings and history of the Yangtze river which was very interesting.
