Spectacular views and so worth seeing on the cruise. The days we were cruising it was very hazy and we did not see the sun or the sky.

This was our third time cruising the Yangtze River and the Three Gorges is still incredibly beautiful! Our last two times were on Victoria Cruises and this time on the Sinorama Gold 8 which added to the enjoyment of the cruise. Will never get tired of the scenery and visiting the different ports.

A major highlight of our Yangtze river cruise (4 nights) to cruise through Xiling Gorge, the longest and deepest of the 3 Gorges; Wu Gorge and Qutang Gorge (the shortest and narrowest of the 3 Gorges). Views on the top open air boat deck were fantastic as the weather was good throughout our 3 days of cruising.

Old hands will say that the 3 gorges is not as good as it was before the dam was built, I didn't see it then but I thought it was amazing now. The fact that it is a working river adds to its attraction and seeing the barges and other working boats pass is so interesting. ell worth a visit.

Don't get me wrong the river cruise is lovely and the scenary is breathtaking, The Three Gorges will give you lovely pictures and memories, but the Yangzi explorer vessels are in need of a total refurbishment. The first room we where given had wet carpets and smelt of foist, the 2nd my partner opened the wardrobe and the door fell... More

While I understand that many villages and homes were destroyed when the dam went in, the result of the Three Gorges is majestic and the best part of a Yangtze River Cruise. Go atop your boat for the best view.

Cruising the Yangtze is a must if visiting China, a four night cruise is the best, hard to get good photos as very hazy with the bad pollution
