It depends on the fare you choose. Classic Group Tours include all meals (excluding beverages) unless specifically stated otherwise. Many of these will be in local restaurants so that you can sample the local cuisine.
On Independent Private Tours, Immerse Yourself Tours, Worldwide Tours and Deluxe Collection Tours, some meals are included; however, several free evenings are also included in the itinerary, offering flexibility for those who wish to explore local restaurants under their own steam.
All Yangtze cruises include two shore excursions for free, with passengers able to purchase additional tours if they so desire. Almost all shore excursions are included on ships that cruise the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is included in all fares, as are pre- and post-cruise transfers.
Extra fees will be applied to most shore excursions, gratuities and beauty salon treatments.
