Why Choose this Ship?

We really enjoyed our recent cruise on the Yangtze River. The boat, Yangtze Gold 8, was pretty nice, although some of it looked a bit worn. The scenery was incredible. The excursions (dam, Goddess Stream, Red Pagoda) were quite interesting.

Hello Mick,

Thank you for the message. Onboard Yangtze Gold 8, there are some drinks packages offered for guests. However, we do not have the detailed list of prices of the different package and types of drinks, which include soft drinks, wines, liquor, juicy, etc. And you could know the prices after boarding the ship.

Enjoy your drinking time onboard.

Hello Keith,

Wish you a wonderful Yangtze River cruise sailing!

Dear Valerie mcconnachie,

Greetings from Wonder at Yangtze-River-Cruises! Happy Chinese Lunar New Year!

Thank you for your inquiry of Yangtze River Cruises today. We are really glad to have this chance to serve for you.

To dining in the VIP restaurant, you only need to pay for RMB300 per person; If you book the Suite, it is free to enjoy. As the Yangtze Gold 8 has been rented out, we do not know if they offer 10 day cruises or not. If you are interested in taking a Yangtze Gold cruise ship, the Yangtze Gold 7 that is the sister cruise ship of the Yangtze Gold 8 and offers the same facilities, amenities, equipment and services is also your ideal cruise choice. Since Yangtze Gold 7 takes visitors to see the best highlights of the Three Gorges, Three Gorges Dam, and the natural sightseeing along the best section of Yangtze River for 4 or 5 days, you could enjoy a wonderful time onboard. If you are interested in that, please tell me directly.

Have a nice Yangtze River cruise trip!
Dress code
Could you tell me if there is a dress code we will need to adher to while on the river cruise please?

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for the good question. Usually dressing onboard Yangtze River cruises is not very formal, and a suite and tie for a man or an evening dress for a woman is not strictly required. Just wear comfortable to enjoy the vacation. However, avoiding dressing too casual like jeans, round-neck shirts, shorts, slippers, and so on is OK.

Have a nice day!
