Victoria River Cruises in China

Victoria River Cruises in China
The Yangtze River is China's longest river, originating in Tibet and emptying into the Chinese Sea. The Yangtze passes through five of China's largest cities, including the modern city of Shanghai. Nature lovers will enjoy viewing the picturesque Chinese countryside, and marvel at the Three Gorges Dam and the Lesser Three Gorges Dam, considered modern engineering marvels. A Yangtze River cruise is a good option for those who want to pack a lot of attractions into a short period of time. Victoria Cruises offers travellers eight different cruise ships to choose from. It is an American-managed company that bills itself as the largest five-star fleet on the Yangtze.

Victoria Katarina

All 126 spacious cabins on the Victoria Katerina offer air conditioning and private balconies. Executive and superior rooms are available. Cruise amenities feature breakfast and lunch buffet, a business center, Internet access and fax services. Cruises can be as short as three nights or as long as eight nights. Guests will enjoy visiting the impressive Three Gorges Dam, passing through the Wushan River and observing the picturesque Chinese countryside. The Victoria Katerina was built in 2004 and can carry up to 266 passengers.
