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.

Many thanks, Zoe,  

I waited to reply to your last two emails until I had finished the cruise.

I had a great visit in Chongqing with Liao Jun who was an excellent friendly guide.  I’m so glad you recommend Wulong and Da Zu which were different but very worthwhile visits.

The Yangtze trip went very well and I managed to do the Ship Lift this morning even though the Yangtze Explorer cancelled their proposed trip. I managed to persuade them to let 3 of us do it alone and then caught a taxi to the Banshan hotel.

Thank you for your consideration in calling the hotel to assist with arranging a taxi to the airport. I plan to leave the hotel around 8 o’clock as my flight departs at 10:25.

When I said my wife will like the Panda tea set I meant we would share it.  We have tea first thing every morning and late afternoon, so it will get much use.

Thank you again for assisting me with my visit which has been most interesting and informative. I have recommended your services to other travellers. Could I ask which company do you work for or are you independent? I notice you have more than one e-mail address.

Hi Yanny:

We had a nice time on the cruise. The best part was the side trip to Shenny Stream. My only comment for improvement would be to enforce the no-smoking areas. We couldn't sit outside on the front deck 5 without having somebody smoking nearby. As we understood it Deck 6 was for smoking.

You we're a great help in booking our tour and assisting us with side trips.

Thank you.

Good Day Ms. Wing

Yes were returned home safely. But I returned with a head cold. I am back to work and my husband continues to enjoy retirement life.

We were very, very pleased with our tour. Our experience was beyond our expectations starting with our tour sites and hotels. We were able to experience transportation that we don’t have here in our area, like the bullet train, subway.

Our tour guides Mr Jeans, Ms Alice, Ms Fay, and Zack were fabulous guides. They all had great knowledge of the English language and of sites visited.

Our only somewhat bad experience was our driver from Chongqing to ship. He drove recklessly and we have no knowledge if Mr. Charlie brought it to the driver’s attention.

Yes, you have our permission to use our comments, pictures and email.

We would definitely use your services again and will definitely recommend it to those interested. Looking back we wished we could have had more time to stay.

Ms Wing I can’t that you enough for all your help and patience with all my emails and questions.

Dear Ms. Wing,

Sorry for my late response, I was offline for more than two weeks. Now I am returning to my busy life.

Unfortunately I don't have any photos with me, but I agree to let you put my evaluation on your website, if it is of any help.

(1)  How do you like our tour arrangements and are you willing to recommend our service to your friends?

I loved the tour arrangements. Your services were highly appreciated. We enjoyed our trip, not only on board on the Century Diamond, but also in the pre board, when you helped us to arrange everything. Thank you so much, miss Wing!

(2)  Do you have some suggestions for us to improve our service?

We only had one problem.... Arriving to the harbour in Chongqing. None of taxis would agree to pick up us, apparently because there is a city regulation, and certain plates can enter to that area on certain dates. Of course, it is not your fault, but I think other customers would appreciate that piece of information. It was quite difficult to understand that with our poor Chinese. :(

(3)  If you come to China again, would you like to use our service again?

If I need to take a cruise, of course I would like to use your service again. I usually like to travel on my own. But I would recommend yoyr company to other people definitely.

Thank you so much for everything, Wing! The company is really lucky to have a person like you among the staff.

Kind regards,

Dear Wonder,

The cruise is a great experience. My family and I were happy with it. Please see below for the answers. 

I tried to look for another river cruise with another route for next year but it looks like the Yangtze 3 gorges river cruise is the only river cruise available.  I look forward to further development in future.

1.    Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?


2.    How’s the experience of the cruise?

Great experience considered it was a river cruise in China.  Certainly Century cruise can learn from the ocean cruises to make their evening entertaining programmer even more successful in terms of variety and quality, but for now those entertaining shows met my expectations.

Hi Rita,

Thank you for putting this trip together for us.  The only thing that could have been better was the weather. Something no one has control of, the views made up for the lack of Sunshine.

I think we made the right choice in our choice of boats and taking the upstream cruise. The smaller boat was less crowded and very comfortable and the crew was outstanding.

Attached are a few Photo's to share.

I will recommend you to others.

Thank you again

Hi Lyn,

We had a wonderful time! The entire tour was beyond our expectation. Starting with Nancy from Chengdu, wonderful patient lady with good command of English. Our bullet train was great and the cruise was fantastic, great service, even even upgraded our cabin to suite. Our guide Charlie helped us for a nominal amount. He is very funny the great gorges museum was wonderful. The highlight of the trip was the three gorges lift which was optional tour every penny was worth it

I will definitely recommend you and your tour agency to my friends , we can’t stop talking about I to everyone we just arrived safely in manila today , also Nancy from Yichang was also great took us on a stroll along the river park and helped us at the airport , I will share some pictures soon take care and good luck Manny and babes (Aida).

Good morning Tracy,

Thank you for following up on our Hangzhou tour.

Yes, we had a very wonderful time with Autumn and Mr. Ma, the driver. It was raining the whole day, which did not dampen our spirit because of Autumn's happy personality.

Best Regards,

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

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!
