Victoria Cruises Brings Back 2-For-1 Pricing on River Cruises on China’s Yangtze River
Pioneer of luxury river cruising on China’s Yangtze River, Victoria Cruises is once again offering 2-for-1 pricing on its popular Three Gorges Highlights program between Chongqing and Yichang for reservations booked directly with the cruise line by August 31, 2018.
River cruisers will enjoy 2-for-1 rates starting at $680 per couple, based on double occupancy, for a private balcony Superior Stateroom. In order to qualify for the discount, travelers must book the shore excursion package which is also available at 2-for-1 pricing.
A comprehensive shore excursion package costs an additional $90 per person ($45 per person after discount) featuring three standard excursions including a guided tour of the Three Gorges Dam and tranquil sampan excursion along one of the Yangtze’s scenic tributaries. A third excursion will take passengers to Shibaozhai’s famous red pagoda or the Jade Emperor Scenic Area overlooking Shuangguishan National Forest.
For passengers interested in exploring additional treasures along the Yangtze, optional excursions-such as the “Ghost City” of Fengdu, Tribes of the Three Gorges or White Emperor City-can be purchased onboard starting at $45 per person, per optional excursion.
Guests may also opt to experience China’s engineering prowess with the introduction of 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. A newly introduced optional excursion allows passengers to experience the new ship lift on a specially-designed sightseeing boat on day two of upstream cruises and on day four for passengers sailing downstream.
Victoria Cruises was the first luxury passenger cruise line on to the Yangtze to incorporate the new ship elevator into its river cruise program.
Authentic cultural activities and demonstrations allow visitors to learn about acupuncture/acupressure, Tai Chi lessons and a variety of Chinese art forms, while nightly entertainment options such as traditional Chinese dance and musical performances round out the onboard experience.
