One of the most attractive features of a cruise vacation is the price. Even more expensive cruises are a good value for the money. Your cruise, accommodation, sightseeing tours and meals are all included in one price.

Both budget travellers and luxury lovers will find a cruise the most affordable way to travel. Costs of sole Yangtze River Cruises vary between 500 and 700 USD and if you choose a splendid Yangtze River tour with an extension to China's metropolitan cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Tibet, Xi'an or Guilin, the rates will reach between 1400 and 3000 USD. It depends on the itinerary and standard you choose. Please go to our Yangtze River Cruises for details, if you do not find a suitable one, please email to us as we can assist you in finding one that meets your requirements.

The rates drop down 30% of the original one in shoulder seasons or in winter. Some Winter Specials is a good alternative to the crowded peak season in spring and autumn.

If you have chosen our Yangtze cruise for your vacations, your cruise, hotel, sightseeing tours and meals are all included in one price. Other expenses on-board include tipping, souvenirs, shore excursion shopping and extra alcoholic beverages. For special services such as laundry, haircuts, gym use, massages and other entertainment activities as requested personally, you will be charged extra. Tipping is becoming acceptable for travel guides, tour bus drivers, porters and waiters in top-class hotels and restaurants. Tipping is recommended if you require special assistance and the average runs about USD $3-5/ day/ person.

 Travel souvenirs, gifts, sweets, and flowers for friends or family are available in the gift shop on board.

 Most ships offer limited alcoholic beverages. Beverages served with dinner are included with your fare; however, drinks in bars, lounges or clubs are not included with your fare.

 Peddlers and touts often sell various souvenirs such as handicrafts, Chinese paintings, coins, lacquers, T-shirts, or even some seemly precious jade and bronze along the shore excursions. Choose carefully if you are not very skilled at bargaining. Show your appreciation, and do not offer a price unless you really want to buy something. If forced sales happen, you may complain to the National Tourism Administrative Bureau directly or to the Institutions of Supervision over Quality.

For you post the question here, I presume you refer to the Yangtze River Cruise. Well, you can book the cruise online and go to Chongqing or Yichang to enjoy! But if you do mean the cruise from Beijing to Shanghai, I'm afraid no one is available.

John, I took the cruise six years ago. The bars were open very early. Yes, the beverage was very expensive. But it depends on what you drank. I didn't find snack area on the ship. Well, it actually depends on what ship you choose. I heard that there were some new luxurious ships on the Yangtze River now. Didn't know what facilities they provided.
