As the 2018 sailing season begins on China’s mist-shrouded Yangtze River, Victoria Cruises is celebrating its renewed partnership with Globus as the exclusive Yangtze River cruise partner for the tour brand.
Passengers will experience scenic landscapes and cultural interactions on four-day cruises with private-balcony accommodations on the five-star Victoria Katarina with the 12-day Classic China & the Yangtze or 14-day Flavors of China & the Yangtze tours from Globus.
Participants of either tour will have an opportunity to see Beijing’s renowned treasures from the Forbidden City to the Peking Opera, while the Terra Cotta Warriors and an authentic noodle-making demonstration are highlights of travellers’ experience in Xi’an.
Both options include a four-day Yangtze River cruise operated by the Victoria Katarina. Guests can view the renowned Three Gorges from their private balcony or the top deck viewing area, learn about the largest hydroelectric dam project ever undertaken at the Three Gorges Dam and experience China’s engineering might with the world’s largest ship elevator capable of elevating ships up to 3,000 tons along with a volume of water roughly equivalent to four Olympic-sized swimming pools.
The 12-day Classic China & the Yangtze program is priced from $2,222 per person, double occupancy. The expanded Flavors of China & the Yangtze itinerary adds two nights and begins at $2,678 per person, double occupancy.
Both programs conclude in Shanghai.
