Yangtze river cruise

hi, we are scheduled for a 4 night 3 day river cruise on the East Queen from Yichang to Chonqing in November. Has anyone done this cruise/ is it worth while and is it too long?

Haven't done that, but I did Chongqing -- Yichang in Jan 2007 and it was a royal waste of my money and time. Email me directly at ellyse99@yahoo.com and include "TripAdvisor" and your own username (eg "babo") in the subject line, if you want a more detailed review and candid photos.

Hi wondered how your cruise on the Yangtze went. We are scheduled to travel on the same boat next week. Worried about stories of food poisoning. Any inofrmation gratefully received. Thanks

We did the cruise from Chonqing to the 3 gorges and I agree it's a complete waste of time and money, to look at the embankment is nice for one hour two hours but a few days?

I can not remenber the name of the company/ship the only thing I know that the food was good staff friendly but just a waist of time and money

As much as I enjoyed our China trip, have to agree the river cruise should be passed. A bug disappointment. All other cruises (Alaska, Nile, Med, Mexico, Hawaii, Greek Isle, we've been on about 10 cruises all over the world) are better and much more scenic. There're so much to see in China, your money and time would be better spent doing something else.
