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.
I think the boat I took "Dragon Cruises Emperor" was very clean and well maintained with your friendly staff. Food was good except the 2nd night dinner was so so.
Couldn't really recommend the first ghost town excursion (Just too hot). The second up with the formerly naked trekkers was very fun - maybe the highlight. The water in Shennonen is so much cleaner than the Yangtze. The locks were neat but it was like 1AM when the door shut behind us and 4 other boat. Way pasy 2 by the time we lowered and passed through the gate opening in front of us.
The little ride from the locks to Yichang may have been the most scenic...water at the "normal" level with undisplaced villages was a nice change of pace.
The excursion to the dam was weak. It was foggy and you couldn't walk across the top of it.
Victoria Cruises - highly recommended. Very modern, clean and totally geared to the comfort of her passengers.(Canadian owned)
Yes, the scenery through the 3 Gorges was spectacular, even the second time round. ( I went on the Yangtze River Cruise BEFORE its first flooding and again AFTER ) The boat trip through the Lesser 3 Gorges was equally great, but the Shennong River Cruise today, runs through some beautiful scenery too. We stopped at Shibaozhai (2nd trip) which to me, was better than Fengdu (1st trip).
We took a van from Qingtian to Wenzhou airport (1-1/2 hours), then flew from Wenzhou to Wuhan (80 minutes), and then took a van 4-1/2 hours to Yichang to catch our boat for the start of our Yangtze River 3 Gorges (Chang Jiang San Sha) cruise. We lucked out, because the holiday ended the day before and the boat was only ½ full, so the presidential suite was available. So we upgraded ourselves to that and enjoyed a luxurious room on the boat for 4 nights as we cruised through the 3 gorges. We spent a lot of time in our room, playing cards and mahjong.

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!

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!
