We have just arrived back in Seattle. We had a wonderful trip.
Our hotel in Shanghai was very nice. Very accommodating & room was especially nice the 3rd night following the Yangtze trip. The Yangtze cruise was very enjoyable. You have a beautiful country!
Helen, our guide in Shanghai was exceptional. Kitty, in Yichang was terrific as well. Thank you for your exceptional service & planning of our tour with Yangtze River Cruise & excursions in Shanghai!

First of all I would like to thank you and Anne very much for taking so good care of us in an unpleasant situation that was completely our fault! I had a wrong perception of the new 72 hour visa rule. Next time I will be better prepared and have my paperwork in order before heading for China.
We are very aware of, and appreciate very much your success in making possible at least a 24 hr stay and get the most out of our short time in Guilin. We enjoyed very much the Li river boat trip as well as the bike tour with Anne. The setting is simply spectacular.
Chengdu is definitely on my list of places I have to see, I am thinking about using one of my next Chongqing layovers to go there. Would be great if we can meet and have a chat then. Though I do not know when I will return to China - next month I am at vacation in Brazil, maybe June or July - I will definitely let you know.
All the best for you and thank you very much one more time.
PS: We departed Guangzhou very early this morning, flying westbound right over Guilin, but could not see anything on the ground - it was still dark & overcast, but a few minutes later we got a magnificent view of some spectacular mountains in neighbouring Yunnan province - I will attach some pic's on my next mail as well.

Thank you for your contact and concern. I am now back in Sweden. I seem to have some kind of throat infection and it's taking a long time to get better. Hopefully now home I can rest better.
Yes, it was unfortunate that I got sick on the cruise and missed a little at the end. But I am very thankful for the care, concern and attention the crew gave me. They were really outstanding! And up till that last evening, I really did have a fantastic time on the cruise. It was amazing! Far better than my expectations! And certainly no need for you to apologize. I was very touched and impressed that you gave us a call when I was at the hospital. Thank you!
The nature scenery through the Three Gorges is breathtakingly beautiful! I'm so glad I've been able to see that! One of the most beautiful places in the world I've ever seen. And the cultural interest spots that we visited were fascinating, beautiful and fun. I took in two of the "extra" tours, so I really got to see a lot, which had been my hope. I was able to visit Fengdu, Shibaozhai Pagoda, BaideCheng and the little side river tour.
Shibaozhai was probably my favorite place! Really great! So beautiful and also historically interesting. Great experience climbing up the pagoda!
Just one question, I would love to express appreciation directly to the Victoria Jenna Crew. Is there an email I could write them a note?
Thanks again for your help, your concern and for handling this great experience for me. In spite of falling sick I was a very happy guest on the tour and I am truly glad I went!

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!
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!

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!
