The cruise was de best part of our trip and we enjoyed a lot. Landscape of three Gorges is one the most wonderful places we ever visited in our lives and Dam of Yangtze is amazing. All crew members were nice and guides on shore excursions provided us valuable information about everything we visited. They teached us few words and songs in Chinese and a lot knowledge about your traditions and way of living.

We booked the Victoria Sophia Yangtze river cruise from Wuhan to Chongqing (6 days), which is a part of the Shanghai to Chongqing 9 day cruise. We independently visited Nanjing and other cities along the way instead of doing the extra 3 days on cruise. It was a good decision as the river scenery between Shanghai to Wuhan is minimal. We chose to board at Wuhan instead of Yichang because we wanted to see the first gorge and ride through the lock system at the dam.

The cruise itself was okay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and small, but functional. The food was a good mix of Chinese and western. There is sprite and coke for free at meals, all other is purchase. Each person gets one bottle of water a day. This is a basic cruise, but enjoyable if you make the most of it.

We did the full trip on the Sophia - Shanghai to Chongqing - and enjoyed every minute. You need to be aware that river cruising cabins tend to be small and that the overall experience is not as spacious as that of ocean cruising and that 5 star boats on this river are not up to the top standard of European river cruises. We were pleased that we paid the executive supplement, but the food in the main restuarant was just as good as ours.

The staff are very attentive, charming and 'up for the job' over the 1.000 miles of the trip.

We were lucky with the weather, as we had clear days. Do make sure you avoid the rainy season as the river can be very fast flowing.

The tour director and river guide were vey good.

Victoria Sophia offers travelers even more opportunities to discover China’s wonders as it sails along the world-famous Yangtze River. It goes to Huangshan. That was the highlight of trip as were lucky to have nice weather while we were there.

We had a very good river guide on board of the Sophia. Even the front desk staff was very helpful after the initial check-in process.
