Chongqing is the starting/ending point of Yangtze River Cruise. Most people come to Chongqing for Three Gorges cruise. It is a good idea to take a one-day private Chongqing tour before or after your Yangtze River cruise,and book your Yangtze River...more

To book with Yangtze River Cruises (based in Chengdu) end up to be the best option for our holidays. We wanted to visit China. Since it would be our first time in this gigantic country, we intended to get a broad sample of the country....More
We did not see the best along the three gorges
down the Yangtze. Sailing off from the Chongqing the sky was overcast and shrouded by heavy fog. Even the last day we reached Yichang, we do not have a clear view of the dams. It...More

I want to start off saying that parts of the boat trip were OK. But there were plenty of things that didn’t live up to the Luxury cruise we were lead to believe. And after looking at the pictures here on Tripadvisor, that’s the cruise...More
After a mix up with our reservation, we ended up on the Century Star - not the Century Legend or Paragon. I think this ship used to be part of the Century cruise line. However, I think it might be a separate company now.
Spent 4 nights on this boat as part of a Wendy Wu tour of China. Was told beforehand that this could be a 'damp' experience and friends had found the rooms/cloths to be damp during the time onboard. This was not the case! The weather...More
Just got back from 3 week tour in China which included Yangtze river cruise on the Victoria cruise line ship Lianna. The scenery was beautiful - at least what we could see as the air pollution in the Yangtze river valley was incredibly bad. The...More
The Yangtze River Cruise (we were on the China Goddess 1 Ship) was extraordinary... Yichang to Chongqing. The Three Gorges Dam site and ship lift is an engineering wonder and the Mini Three Gorges was absolutely stunning, especially travelling there on sampans.
Optional tours were...More

Good: Our Tour Guide, Ray (name used) was exceptional. Of course, he only had 30 of us but the other tour guides also seemed to be excellent. The ship crew was very efficient and provided great service. They...More

I'm not sure which cruise 'boats' you might have access to, but the one we were on, and the 4 or more others that we saw tagging along with us on the river cruise, were certainly NOTHING like a 'cruise experience' you would get elsewhere, even on a 'Carnival' cruise line.
The cruise we bought was a stand-alone add-on to our 2 week tour package, so I can't blame the quality of our 'cruise' on a Tour Company.
Granted, these river cruises have breath-taking views, but they seem designed to provide shore excursions everyday to inject tourist dollars into the local economies.
You might have to seriously lower your expectations if you want to enjoy the cruise!
IMHO, attempting to stay in your suite for the cruise will be a waste of your time as all ships we saw appeared to be stale-smelling and 'long in tooth.'
I stayed on-board one day while 99% of the passengers (including my group) went on a shore excursion: so I can safely recommend AGAINST doing that.
