Hi Wonder,

I apologize for not replying earlier. Please find my review below.

Century Glory Yangtze River Cruise November 2019

I arranged our River Cruise through Wonder Wang at www.chinadiscovery.com.  Wonder was superb!  When there was an issue with the email server he phoned to check that I had received the information.  He was patient as we decided on dates and efficiently organized all the details and information we required.

The cruise itself was fabulous.  The Century Glory had only been launched in September 2019 so we were fortunate to be on an almost brand new Cruise Ship.  The ship was extremely well decorated and equipped.  We only booked a basic cabin with the intention of upgrading on the boat.  This wasn't possible as all the upgrades had been completed by the time we boarded.  However, our cabin was excellent and we don't believe that there would have been any advantage in being on a higher deck.  We did upgrade to the higher floor dining room.  We didn't hear any complaints from other guests in the standard dining room but I can say that the food and the service in the upgraded dining room was 5 Star.  All in all the ship staff at all levels delivered excellent service.  English was never a problem and staff in the dining room were able to assure me quickly that my allergy to MSG wouldn't a problem - and it wasn't.

The Yangtze River, Dam and tours were all amazing.  We had wondered if the scenery would live up to the other spectacular sights we have had the privilege to see around China and it did.  The optional tour of the Ship Lift at the Three Gorges Dam was incredible and if you have the opportunity a must do.

All out tour guides spoke excellent English, were knowledgeable,engaging and had a great love of their country and its progress.

An absolutely wonderful cruise, If you have the opportunity I would highly recommend it.  We then followed up with a most enjoyable 7 days in Chongqing.

Dear Mark,

I have submitted my review to Trip Advisor. I have to apologize for the late reply as I was very busy last few days . 

Overall it was an excellent arrangement by Mark who meticulously planned every detail and religiously monitoring our schedule throughout and had it executed by the caring and helpful guide Carrie. 

We would like to place on record our heartfelt thanks to Mark and the team in Chengdu, Yichang & Zhangjiajie.

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for the mail received, I’ve meant to reply some time ago already, but unfortunately the days since our return from China has just been flying by.

Our trip was truly an unforgettable and amazing experience.  

Needless to say, to anyone living in China, that we have chosen one of the worst weeks in October to travel as it was rainy, cloudy, cold and just plain miserable but, this said, we still had an amazing time onboard the President No 8.  We were fortunate to be upgraded to two suites and this just made everything perfect...  The suites are amazing, we even had a sky light, right over the  most comfortable king size bed.  This really did not make getting out of bed in the mornings an easy task.

We have decided to take the exclusive dining package as this allows a little more privacy.  We could indulge in the most fabulous meals and allow meaningful and lengthy discussions with the best Changyu champagne till late in the evenings.  Something we don’t always get to do due to our busy schedules back home.

We have managed to go on all the excursions on offer, an excellent decision as the guides were all equally friendly and knowledgeable and the tours truly very memorable.  I can really not single out a single individual.  

I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Kind regards and greetings from a warm and sunny South Africa.

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 ?

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!
