As a tour operator for the past 25 years to China I get questions regarding the Yangtze River cruise. Prices vary from $250 to $1800 per person depending on the deck and cabin level. I always tell people you should not pay less than $500 per person but expect to pay at least $800 to $1200 per person for an acceptable western comfort level. There are many cruise companies on the Yangtze at a wide range of prices. The boat photos you see here are on a boat that sells for $295 to $495 per person. The $295 per person are for cabins with four bunk beds about the size of a train sleeper car with two uppers and two lowers. Bathrooms down the hall etc. They do have two person cabins at the higher cost however. So it is buyer beware! You get what you pay for in China or any other place. Once booked it is too late of course.
I sell and promote both the Victoria Line and the Century Line which are the two top cruise only lines on the Yangtze river. www.victoriacruies.com and www.centuryrivercruises.com For more information and special prices for early bookings contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to read the blog just above this one regarding cruise boats on the Yangtze.
