Yangtze cruise


We are planning a Yangtze cruise next April from Shanghai to Chongqing. ( 8 nights). The ship will be the victoria Sophia which I have been unable to find anything about other than the basic info on the Victoria cruises website. Has any one got any recent info on this ship as in quality etc and particularly re the actual cabins.

Also, is there a more relevant forum to post this question on please.

Thanks for any help.

The facilities are conference rooms, bars for cocktails parties, private meetings and guest lecture sessions on the upper floor, with more info, visit website: yangtze-river-cruises and find the Victoria Sophia details.

I guess that you have been to China too many times and you are now running out of interesting places to visit.

No..please...do NOT spend 8 nights on the Yangtze! It is a total waste of time. Even the 4 day trip from Chongqing to Yichang (or vice versa) has lost all its glory and beauty since the completion of the dam. Read the forum here and you will find that this cruise is nothing more than a tick on your bucket list but nothing where you will have tears in your eyes when telling your friends back home.

Go to Yunnan and/or Guangxi province (Yangshuo area) instead!

www.cruisecritic.com has passenger review forum for all the major sea and river lines. If the specific ship is new or there aren't any reviews/comments/tips, look for comments about the company's other ships plying this route.
