Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Junior Suite

This 4 day River Cruise was part of a package. We were told the Victoria Lianna was a 5 start ship. What they forgot to mention that it was 5 star by Chinese standards, when in reality we thought it about a 2 1/2 star by western standards. We paid for an upgrade at USD400 to a junior suite. The suite was located at the stern and was extremely noisy and the vibrations were quite extreme. Ship is very dated although they will tell you it was fully updated in 2011. Don't believe it. Check in was a disaster. We were part of a tour group of 39 and check-in took almost 2 hours. On a positive note the staff were friendly (although hardly any one on board spoke English), and the food was good, but not exceptional. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Be warned, no double beds on board, even in the suites....all small single. As long as you don't have high expectations you will enjoy your stay on the Victoria Lianna.

Cabin Review

Junior Suite

Cabin JR

Cabin size is good. Small single beds only. No hairdryers in cabins, they have to be borrowed from reception and returned immediately after use. Only one powerpoint in cabin. Bathroom was small with an open drain from bath/shower to drain outlet under vanity sink. Floor uneven, takes a bit of getting used to. Furnishings and carpeting very dated.
