Victoria Cruises

Cruising China's Yangtze River is a booming and popular vacation choice.
 
On the river between Chongqing and Yichang one sees seemingly hundreds of similarly shaped flat-bottomed, multi-decked, shallow draft river cruisers in passing. Of those ships, however, the vast majority are aimed solely at the domestic Chinese market. Of the handful that cater to Western passengers, Victoria Cruises is the only line that is U.S. owned and operated.

Founded in 1994 by the Chinese-American Pi family, this New York-based company began a program, completed in early 2003, of custom-building a fleet designed expressly for the preferences, tastes and priorities of a Western -- especially American -- clientele. Aboard these upscale ships the understated decor is warm, comfortable and luxurious, and the cuisine excellent. 
 
Though it is possible to book these cruises as a stand-alone product directly through a travel agent, for the vast majority of passengers, the cruise is offered as part of a longer land-based tour of China. The cruise fare, in these instances, is embedded in the overall tour price, and includes all shore excursions at no additional cost. .

 
What MY TRAVEL AGENT likes about Victoria Cruises:
 
1.  YOU GET A "TASTE" OF CHINA
 
China has one of the world's great culinary traditions. Passengers will experience the joys of Chinese cuisine, expertly prepared with the highest quality fresh ingredients. Victoria's award-winning dining experience is reflective of China's evolving culinary landscape, with a fusion of western dishes.
 
2.  GAINING EXPOSURE TO A FASCINATING CULTURE
 
Bring your cameras and your smiles, as the crew presents some of China's most elaborate fashions dating back to the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD). A veriety of traditional costumes from all regions of China will reflect China's cultural diversity.
 
Victoria also offers lectures on Chinese history and culture which add insight and depth to the cruise experience. Topics include the evolution of the Three Gorges Dam project and its importance to China, Chinese medicine, poetry by many of the famous Chinese sages, Chinese language, Chinese traditional brush painting, dumpling wrapping, etc.

3.  JOIN THE CREW FOR THE CABARET SHOW

Victoria's crew puts on a performance not to be missed! Singing, dancing, music! The cabaret show is also an opportunity for passengers to display any special talents they may have, whether it be shaking a leg, or curling the tongue...anything! This is a wonderful opportunity to unwind and enjoy the experience while cruising on the Yangtze with Victoria.
