I chose this cruise as am teaching in Shanghai and thought it would be a good idea to escape the crowds over the national holiday week here and learn more about surrounding areas. Although the ship and my balcony cabin were great - certainly didnt manage to escape the crowds! The embarkation at Baoshan was chaotic with huge long queues and little assistance with priority status or the promised courtesy lounge to wait in. Although most of the evening entertainment was a good standard, I was disappointed that so many gym activities cost extra and felt there could've been more informative lectures about the destinations we were visiting. The service staff were charming and helpful but found the crowd experience continued at the buffet restuarant and one was left with a very impersonal experience and feeling rather rushed about the all to short port visits. As a first time cruiser - unsure if I will repeat this in a hurry

Great cabin but not the way to escape Chinese national holiday crowds!
