What better way to experience the beauty of the longest river in Asia and the third longest river in the world, than on a floating hotel on The Yangtze. Flowing from the Tibetan Plateau in the west, to the east China Sea, you’ll cruise through the heart of China on this spectacular waterway. Take a seat on the sundeck, drink in hand, basking in the sunshine and the fresh river air, and watch the ancient sites, remote rural villages and the natural beauty of the Yangtze Gorges pass you by.

Your stay

Your Deluxe Balcony Cabin on-board the Century Legend or Paragon cruise boat is modern and comfortable. You’ll enjoy your very own private balcony, with panoramic sliding doors, allowing you to make the most of the spectacular views during your cruise. Inside your Deluxe Balcony Cabin, you’ll also find quality all-cotton linen, luxury bathroom products, and access to movie channels, CNN, HBO and many more international TV channels.

Of course, when you’re not relaxing in your cabin, or out on your private balcony on the water, you can relax on the sundeck with a drink while enjoying the magnificent scenery and fresh river air. The ship’s Grand Atrium Lobby is also a lovely place to relax, or why not take a ride in the sightseeing elevator in the centre of your ship, designed so that you’ll never miss a thing. All of the spacious common areas offer state-of-the-art amenities to ensure that your cruise is as special as it can be. On-board entertainment includes the chance to participate in Chinese cultural exercises such as Majong, Chinese 101, folk dancing and TaiChi. Or you can sit back and relax, watching a spectacular local opera performance and ethnic dancing show.

Dining on-board the Century Cruise Boat

The restaurant offers an impressive menu as well as panoramic views. Just imagine eating breakfast while you watch the sun rise over the river’s sparkling waters, or watching the sunset as you dine in the evening with a lovely glass of wine. You can enjoy a Western-style buffet for breakfast and lunch, and a Chinese and Western-style buffet dinner. The home-made dishes combine local and international flavours to ensure you’ll always find something to suit your taste.
