We cruised the Yangtze River on the Victoria Lianna in July 2015. The Three Gorges are, by far, the highlight of this river cruise. The other included excursions provided a nice detour--and some wonderful historical sights. The Victoria Lianna is a nice boat, but a bit tired; however, an absolutely delightful staff who were friendly, attentive and really made every... More

This was a highlight of our trip to China for my husband, the electrical engineer. Our only disappointment was that we arrived late in the day and it was starting to get dark by the time we arrived. There is an indoor display model of the project. The sheer size of the dam is very impressive. It was fascinating to... More

We disembarked from our cruise ship to take a smaller boat up through the Three Gorges to get a close-up view of this fantastic landscape. It felt at times as if we were in a National Geographic magazine. We learned about the Ba people and how they used singing to communicate in this mountainous landscape of sheer, high cliffs which...

This is a huge help to the people of China but also flooded townships and antiquities, so not every one was impressed. It is the largest hydro electric project in the world, so you can't help but be impressed.

The Yangtze gold N07 is a relatively new vessel, but already showing sign of wear. Cabins are comfortable, if one can look past the stained carpets and curtains. If the upgrade to the VIP dining room is offered, take it, it is well worth it. The standard of the food is the same as the common dining room ( unless... More

We were looking forward to this part of our trip and we were not disappointed. However, it was a difficult start. In May, when we took the cruise, the water level above the dam is at its lowest in anticipation of the rainy season floods (which the dam has been designed to control amongst its other functions). This means that... More

If anyone has actually read any of my other reviews it will come as a surprise that I was even on a 4 day / 3 night cruise along the Yangtze River. The scenery of the 3 Gorges was pretty special even though due to "mist" visibility was less than 400m for the entire cruise (All on the ship were... More

Any visit to China should definitely include a cruise on the amazing Yangtze River - this 3 day cruise turned out to be one of the main highlights of my trip. The three gorges area is absolutely beautiful - and all 3 gorges are different. The 3 gorges dam is very impressive - a typical example of Chinese skill and... More

Great experience for a 3-day river cruise. The scenery was amazing, the construction of the dam had drastically changed the view, but it was still beautiful with villages along the river unchanged.

A trip down the Yangtze through the Gorges is just what a tour of China needs. Relax as the ship cruises along, soak up the scenery when traversing Qutang or Wu Gorge and make sure you go down the Goddess Stream, opposite the Goddess Peak. Would live to have climbed up the peak but you need 5 hours (3 up... More
