We joined the cruise at Shanghai after a week in China visiting Beijing, Xian and Shanghai .with Wendy Woo Tours who were excellent. Don't try to Facebook etc in China as its all blocked including Google although email works.
The processing getting onto the ship was quick and efficient and the ship is magnificent, now where it gets interesting.
The cruise is labelled 'East meets West' for a reason and embarking from Shanghai should give you a clue. Maybe 80% of the people were Chinese and from what I've been informed 800 children . People from different shore have different standards - lets leave it there!
Excellent, great shower, fantastic bed with huge pillows. Good TV with news films.
Excellent city tour
