yangtze river China tour

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Other

Cruise accommodations on Viking Emerald excellent. Food was best of any cruise we have taken. Ports of call were poor - visiting a school as the only stop that day was inadequate for those who want to see as much of China as possible in this short 12-day excursion
Three Gorges Dam was unimpressive, not seeing any of the mechanics of how it operates as we would see in other countries. Meals served off ship were institutional quality, trying to emulate western perception of Chinese food rather than authentic Chinese. Guide was excellent, but why have separate guides for each tour in addition to primary guide? 12 days is too short a time. Staff on board was excellent in every way, a highlight of the cruise along with food and service generally on board. Anxious to try another Viking Cruise without pre and post cruise tours. Less

Cabin review:

No complaints, comfortable cabin. TV reception poor through gorges. Bathroom fine.
