Two travellers on the Yangtze Gold No. 2 Cruise ship from Chongqing to Yichang. This cruise exceeded our expectations. There were only 4 English-speaking people on board with 2 English-speaking River Guides (Vincent and Elissa). We were always well-looked after with Elissa always being available and helping us out. All of the excursions had local guides who were bilingual and spoke English very well. The facilities on the Boat were quite good, but the rooms are a bit dated. The bathrooms could use an upgrade.

This is a Chinese ship with a Chinese crew with mostly Chinese tourists. That said, we did have a good time. The service was generally good and we had good food throughout the trip. If you are expecting good western food, this is not the ship for you. If you have an open palate and want to try different types of Chinese food (duck, rabbit, noodles) it's great. The Yangtze Gold 2 was whisper quiet. We got the VIP dining option which was a steal. We had a group of 12 and we had our own private room with a view for all meals. The wait staff was very responsive. Some of them actually perform in the nightly show. Our main contact on the ship was Lily and for the most part she promptly resolved any issues we had.
Shore excursions - Ghost city is fun although only the final temple is historic. Shibaozhai Pagoda is picturesque but lots of steps and make sure you take the ad hoc cabs to the drunken bridge to save a 20 min walk each way. Definitely do the lesser three gorges tour. Mini three gorges costs extra and is worth seeing. On the final night the ship goes through multiple ship locks - make sure you bring ear plugs for this. It takes hours and it will wake up all but the heaviest of sleepers!
