Thank you for putting our Yangtse cruise etc. together for Tricia and I. All your arrangements were on time and as promised. We enjoyed our river trips and your guides were excellent.
A special mention re "Frank" in Shanghai. He went over and above what was required of him, and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a good look at Shanghai.

I felt it necessary to email you regarding one of your customer service employees within Yangtze river cruise company.
Due to the fact that I myself am in business, I feel that when my staff preform outstandingly they should be recognised.
The gentleman in question is Mr Tiger Wei, I have been dealing with Mr Wei over the last couple of weeks to which nothing has been too much trouble for him no mater how menial some of my queries have been.
Mr Wei has been nothing but extremely prompt in answering my queries, very professional and I feel has gone over and above the call of duty. I feel Mr Wei should be recognised for his 100 % work ethic and is an asset to your company.
As previously mentioned being in business when you have such an outstanding employee this should not go unnoticed.
Due to the fact that Mr Wei preformed in such a manner I then preceeded to book other aspects of my trip through him.
Mr Wei is a valuable employee and I feel will go very far in your company, congratulations to Mr Wei and to Bamboo tours for employing such a professional.

Thank you for organizing our trip. Overall it was enjoyable. The cruise was overbooked with over 400 passengers and lots of children!!
The ship Century Paragon was great. Clean, new, lovely rooms, smooth and quiet cruising. Appreciated ship hotel manager Ian upgrading us to the executive floors when we checked in as lower floors were a little noisy. Enjoyed eating in the pavilion restaurant - on 6th floor- quiet, good view, good service. Initially there were complimentary tea coffee snacks in the floor 5 VIP lounge made available but it was removed after the second day. Only after we questioned the owner David( who was onboard training the management staff) did he inform us that we could get complimentary coffee from the bar.
Meals were good - breakfast was our family favorite as there was an eggs kitchen. Buffet style - caters more for the local tastebuds. Good salad and fruit selection. Overall good meals and well presented.
Upon arrival in Yichang. We were warmly greeted by Fay and brought us to a silk embroidery museum to browse and purchase works. She also took us to the Fengshui place where our zodiacs and fortunes were told to us. Our kids found that particularly fun.
Cruise crew was accommodating and special thanks to Ruska and Dexter to ensure announcements were made in both English and mandarin.
Particularly enjoyed the lesser three gorges excursion.

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.

Enjoy your coming cruise journey with Century Sun!
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!
