Flew from Australia with 5 others and spent a few days touring around Beijing , seeing Lost City and Great Wall. Fast train down to Tanguu station in 2nd class was easy $18 Aus,then Taxi to cruise port on the day was easy enough as well $100 Yuan. Get on the Boat through the initial check in wasn't organized that well from the Non-Chinese side anyway, very slow, with little instruction or desk attendants. The Boat itself was in great condition and the Balcony room 11246 was a nice size and enough room for clothing. Mr Jimmy was very helpful we when needed anything during the voyage of 6 days Entertainment was on most nights of a good standard with some only so so but that the luck of the draw No self laundry. Casino just smelled of smoke even though non smoking. No Bar staff service away from Bar area like on other cruises. Four different free restaurants served same menu through whole cruise, seemed to based on Chinese cuisine until a lot of people complained then more variety became available. Breakfast was a mad house, survival of the fittest/ or biggest elbows Very little common courtesy shown by majority of passengers which made cruise a bad experience. I know Aussies can be loud and sometimes rude, like all nations but i would never do a cruise out of Asian/Beijing again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone either. Couldn't fault staff on boat as they tried to satisfy all passengers Dis-Embarkment was a breeze and we took own bags of at Hong Kong Read Less

We chose this Cruise because I wanted to see areas of China I had not seen in my previous visit. My partner had never been to China it seemed like a very good way for him to see a lot of the country and the culture. We thoroughly enjoyed the onboard activities and the shore excursions were wonderful. The guide was a joy to have and full of wonderful information that made each Excursion come alive. The cabin and the amenities on board were very comfortable. The staff was courteous very thoughtful and helpful. Dining provided us with both Western food and local Chinese Fair all of it was delicious and beautifully presented. We had a wonderful time sailing between Beijing and Shanghai and would take another Viking Cruise sometime in the future probably somewhere in Europe. A cruise through Europe on a Viking ship is definitely on my bucket list. Read Less

Wonderful experience! The tours guides were knowledgeable on all subject matter related to the country and made the transportation transfers effortless for us. They made everyone feel welcome and special. We arrived a day late because of Airline problems and were worried about being met and what we would have to do to rejoin the tour. When we arrive in Beijing we were greeted by a guide who assured us that They would arrange for us to see the sights we had missed on the first day. Can't say enough great things about these men and women! The Hotel accommodations were superior and the excursions that were planned were excellent. We signed up for all of the extras and were not disappointed in any of them. The Ship accommodations were excellent also, we were able to sit on our own deck and watch the beautiful scenery or go into the public areas that were great for viewing also. Just can't say enough about the service and food on the ship! Fantastic! This was a great experience that I would recommend to everyone who wants to see China. Read Less

We enjoyed the whole trip, The tour guide was excellent. He did an outstanding job. Very knowledgeable, accommodating to your needs, nice and pleasant to be with. The places that we visited were all wonderful to see. Very educational and lots of history that one can do a second visit and learn more about the culture and people. All the hotels we stayed in were first class. Food and service were excellent. The land tours were also awesome. The Three Gorges was a beautiful sight to see and see how the village people who were relocated high in the mountains live. They walk for miles on the rugged mountain slopes to get to their destinations. This is a daily life for them. I thought their way of life is so incredible. Note: When you are a first time booker, I recommend that the travel person who helps you set up your tour should guide you of what to expect in the tour package. Because I booked the tour 9 months in advance, when it came closer to the cruise date, I didn't look at the email as often as I should and missed a lot of valuable information about what you should do (example- you have to do your own set up of the land tours of which one that you want to attend - it was not automatic). The travel person you initial helped you should follow up and help you and guide you on these land tours. Each time I called, I got a different person to help me. Most of them were curious and nice but I truly think the original person who helped with the initial booking should be your guide. David you was the initial person was never there when I called. When I left messages, he sometimes called back in the beginning of the initial booking but after that when I left a message, he never called back. I talked to several people that help me set up the land portion of the cruise. I was very grateful that one person, forgot name was the best who helped me do an automatic checking on the website about the cruise. That is my only complaint I have about the initial travel booker that book our cruise. Other than that I would recommend Viking to everyone. In fact, I called several people to make sure to use Viking on their next cruise. I would recommend everyone to choose Viking for their travel. Read Less
