  3. Victoria Grace
A 4 night cruise on the Yangtze was part of our package tour. I have given this ship a 1 star rating only because there is no option for a lower one. Absolutely appalling in every respect - the cabin, dining, no entertainment as such. We had some locals attending dinner wearing singlets. The meals were self serve of a very basic standard. There is no option to upgrade dining not that I'd recommend paying for it. The floors on the cabin decks are "rippled" ie not flat, and they buckle when you walk on them. It was a standing joke amongst the western guests. Service - there was none. Dirty coffee cups, wine glasses were never collected from our cabin for the duration. Passengers had to ask at reception for toilet paper or soap as cabin stewards dont replenish supplies. We enjoyed our Yangtze trip despite this barge, not because of it. Avoid at all costs!

Appalling!

Cabin Review

Cabin
A very small cabin, twin beds though we requested a double.
Air conditioning did not work.
One had to be wary of leaving the balcony door open for air, as the deck immediately below is for local Chibese, many of whom smoke heavily.
Bathroom supplies, including toilet paper not replenished; nor were cups or glasses replaced by steward.
