Is there anyone who has recently had experience (2017/2018) sailing on the Century Paragon? This seems to be the best ship on the day we wish to sail, judging from the agent websites on Yangtze River cruises. I was almost about to book until I came upon comments on TA dated 2014/2013 which haven't been so nice although there was one good one in 2016.
People have complained that the clientele are predominantly Chinese. We usually like some kind of interaction with other passengers. In the big dining room, there aren't many westerners. There was a comment that if you arrived late, you will get stale cookies and apples. So essentially, we would have to upgrade to the VIP dining room to have company and get better meals. Can anyone give me a rough figure of what the additional costs would be?
The ship is now 6 years old. What state is it in?
Would like to hear your experiences.
