SHANGHAI - April 26, 2018 - PRLog -- Originally a small fishing village, Shanghai has grown into a metropolis at a speed that has never been seen before. Shanghai has staked her claim as a leading economic and financial hub, and there has been much debate whether China should claim her as the capital over Beijing.

Nanjing, the City of Emperors, is situated on the south bank of Yangtze River and is the capital of Jiangsu Province. It's a modern city offering a rich heritage to explore, notably the City Wall built by the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Zhu Yuanzhang, who also selected the city as China's capital. The majestic Yangtze River, China's longest river, and several of its branches flow through Nanjing.

Until recently you could only visit this historic city if you booked a long cruise between Chongqing and Shanghai, but from now on a regular luxury cruise service will operate between Nanjing and Shanghai aboard Century Sky, one of the ships owned by the leading cruise company on the Yangtze River, Century River Cruises, and which offers flawless service on 6 decks. The deluxe cabins are palatial at 25.9 sq/m plus the 2sq/m balcony- the size of cabins actually had to be enlarged in order to accommodate the spacious and comfortable beds (2.0m by 0.9m).

Between sightseeing schedules passengers can keep fit in the state-of-the-art fitness room or relax in the quiet library, try the traditional Chinese board game Ma Jong or the art of Chinese calligraphy. Tai Chi is organized for early morning risers on the observation deck which offers beautiful 360-degree views. Evenings are equally filled in with folk dancing, performances of local opera and the exuberant dancing displays of local minorities.

The food, freshly prepared by international chefs, offers a wide choice at every meal. The breakfast choice ranges from sumptuous croissants filled with chocolate or almonds, freshly-made coffee, juice or English tea, to fresh fruits, yogurts as well as bacon and eggs. Alternatively, if you feel adventurous, you can taste some more traditional breakfast food such as delicious steamed buns, soybean milk and tempting deep-fried dough sticks or rice porridge. Lunch and dinner offer both Chinese and Western buffet meals with a variety of choices so prettily presented that they are almost too exquisite to tuck into.  Meals are generally all served in the single-seating main restaurant, with marvellous picture windows which invite the dramatic scenery of the Yangtze River indoors.

Departures from Shanghai are every Sunday and departures from Nanjing are every Wednesday. The promotional price for a 4-day / 3-night cruise either starting from Shanghai upstream or Nanjing downstream is US$350 per person per cruise if bookings are made directly with the cruise line. The price includes all meals (except the embarkation dinner) and 2 daily shore excursions. Families and kids are welcomed.MICE programs are designated for you too if needed.
