Reviews of Yangtze River Cruise

Still not deciding if a Yangtze River Cruise is worth for you? Many of our travellers have experienced a lifetime changing trip and now more than happy to share their stories with you. Check out their memorable Yangtze Cruise reviews and experiences.

Dear Rita:
Thank you for your email. 

It is good to hear that matters are improving in China. Here in Manila the virus is only just beginning to take its toll.

One of the doctors at the hospital that recently treated me for a minor cancer has died from its effects and most of the others at that hospital are now under quarantine. Many more people will die in the coming weeks. Because of my age (over 60) the local authorities do not allow me to leave my apartment -but that is fine with me as it will force me to write up material I have been meaning to write up for some time now.

Once this is over I sincerely hope to get back to China - this time covering Xining and Chengdu. Always on the search for rhubarb growing in the wild! And when the virus allows that to happen I shall be in touch with China Discovery. The last trip you organized for us was excellent.

Best wishes

Dear Echo Gou.

It is a surprise and a delight to get your message and advice regarding Covid 19.

Cathy and I are being very careful and following the advice of our Government who are doing an excellent job for the people. We follow world news also. 

Please thank your colleagues for caring about us. PLEASE tell all the wonderful guides who cared for us 2 years ago in a most memorable holiday and adventure that we think about them and wish them well.

Take care of yourself and each other.

Kindest regards

Cathy and Cyril

Thank you Jack for your email advising on corona virus and updating on the status of the virus in China. We are also following the case not only in China but all over the world. We hope that a vaccine is found soon so that the economy can return to normal. I can understand that the tourist industry is hard hit and hope that China Discovery/Tibet Discovery is able to maintain its operation until this problem is resolved.


Glad that you have read the ongseokkim website. If you so wish, recommend it to your colleagues, friends, family, etc to read. As my father's original root and thus my root is China, our history may be of interest to people in China especially those with surname of Wang.

With peace and harmony

Hello Vivien,

Thank you for your email, our family is well. Canadian cities are now under lockdown except for essential workers. Canada is a country with only 33 millions people spreading across a vast land mass. We have a good public healthcare system but it cannot handle a spike in COVID-19 cases. In order to keep the hospital available to the seriously ill people we all stay home to practice social distancing.  

In light of all the bad news around the world it is unlikely we’ll come to China anytime soon. Please keep yourself safe and keep in touch.

Eating inn the restaurant
Hello, We will be joining a tour which includes a 4 night cruise on the Century Sun... Can you let me know if you can sit anywhere in the restaurant, and do you have tables for 2 people? Also, are you able to eat/ have dinner in your cabin ?
2019-07-04 11:28
Hi Lisa,

Thanks for your question! To offer a better service for guests, Century Sun will considerately arrange seats according to guests' eating habits, nationalities and cabin number onboard. Everyone onboard usually eats at a fixed seat of a big round table with 8-10 people.

If you want to eat in your own cabin, you can call the reception desk and order dishes and drinks you like. Attendants will deliver the great food to your cabins, and this service needs to pay extra.

If you are interested, check more about eating onboard Yangtze River cruises (for reference) at:

Clothing for Yangtze River Cruise
We are travelling on the Yangtze River cruise in early May 2019. Is it normally cold or can we wear shorts during the day
2019-04-18 17:08
Hello Robert,

Thanks for your question. Early May is during the spring along the Yangtze River. The weather changes warmer and warmer, and usually sunny in the day time, but there would be some cold wind at early morning and during night. It's ok to wear shorts on balmy sunny days. However, you are also recommended to prepare pants with you, because there may be some light raining days during the spring.

Wish you a memorable ship experience in China!
Vegetarian Food
Hi, We are traveling in the cruise from 9 May. Is there any Indian vegetarian food. What are the other vegetarian options
2018-04-30 04:51
Hello Ravi,

Greetings from China! At present, there is no Indian vegetarian food served onboard Yangtze River cruise ships. However, the breakfast, lunch and dinner are almost arranged in buffet styles with about 3-5 vegetarian dishes, like cabbages, vegetables in season, vegetable and fruit salad, and so on, and some cruises prepare the dinner in Chinese sitting form with some specially cooked vegetarian dishes for guests. And if want, you could also pay extra to order some vegetarian food at the reception desk and tell the staff about your needs and eating habits, and the cruise chefs would prepare great food for your enjoyment. Besides, the Yangtze River ships serving foreign guests from the world have provided service to many vegetarian travellers and have gained rich experience and good reviews, so you can enjoy your dining time on the ship!

Wish you a wonderful Yangtze River sailing trip in May!

Should we worry about Motion Sickness
Just not sure if we should need motion sickness meds. We are on your cruise that departs from the Yichang Port for Yangtze River from April 24- April 27, 2017. Thank you so much
2017-04-07 08:13
Dear Mary,

Thanks for taking a Yangtze River cruise with us. April is a great time with fine weather to enjoy the gorgeous scenery along Three Gorges.

No matter which ship you take, it will run very steady at a relatively slow speed. As you know, the construction of Three Gorges Dam controls the water level and flow velocity of Yangtze River that it will be steady to guarantee every ship to sail smoothly. Unlike the ocean cruise, there is no need to bring motion sickness meds for travelers who on Yangtze River cruise. If your physical condition are seasick easily, take some just in case. And no worry, there is a clinic onboard who will serve at any time.

Wish you have a nice journey!
