Happy 16th Birthday to Century River Cruises!
Century Cruises has come of age! Since our very first sailing 16 years ago we have prospered and blossomed into a sophisticated cruise company offering seven sister ships on the Yangtze River.
Our seven ships have all been awarded a five star rating by The China National Tourism Administration. All our staff are meticulously trained to the highest Western standards, with an excellent knowledge of the English language and Chinese culture, and the management of our ships is entrusted to an experienced hospitality management team.
Our designers wanted you to feel at home onboard, and as a result our ships boast stylish lobbies, and observation decks which offer unparalleled 360 degree view. Our cabins are spacious and all have balconies, and even our beds are extra-large with soft smooth cotton linen.
On board of any of our seven luxury ships you will have a chance to savour traditional Chinese food at its best. The food is prepared by chefs to the highest possible standards and washed with purified drinkable water. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are western-style buffets where art and food are so magically combined that you may feel guilty for destroying a beautifully arranged plate of food. A sumptuous Captain's Dinner is served as a Farewell Dinner.
We offer a fine balance of on board activities and daily excursions to bring China and its rich cultural history to you. For example, we take you to the famous red pagoda or Shibaozhai Temple, on a small hill 200 metres up on a bank of the Yangtze, and tell you the tale of the Duck and Rice Well. We explore one of the Yangtze's tributaries, the picturesque natural Shennv Stream, by small boats and learn about the local tribes who still try to preserve their unique way of life. No visit to the Yangtze is complete without admiring the largest and most dramatically-
Admire the most extraordinary natural wonders – Three Gorges of the Yangtze River by cruising either 4 days downstream or 5 days upstream between Chongqing and Yichang, or you can enjoy one of the world's greatest journeys – a magnificent 10-day river cruise on the Yangtze from Shanghai to Chongqing in the spring.
