  3. Viking Emerald
This Viking trip -- Imperial Jewels of China -- got great review from friends and our travel agent which is why we took it. This was a 3 part cruise: 2 parts land with a 5 day river cruise on the Yangtze River between the 2 land segments. Embarkation at Chongqing and debarkation at Wuhan were smooth as silk. Our ship, the Viking Emerald, was immaculate and our cabin was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. Dining was superb with great variety and the wait staff couldn't have been more attentive. The wait staff quickly learned our names, our drinks preferences, and our general likes in terms of food offered. We were sad to leave the wait staff when we disembarked in Wuhan. Onboard entertainment was very enjoyable and informative while our shore excursions were truly spectacular, especially the Shibaozhai Temple and the Goddess Stream. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who wants a trip-of-a-lifetime experience in China.
