Why Choose this Ship?
Considering that the Victoria Anna is a river cruiser, it has excellent facilities. It has two restaurants. In deck 2 is the large Dynasty dining room for all the passengers except those in Deck 5 suites. On Deck 6 is the A la Carte Dining Room reserved for those travelling in suites or those who have paid an extra amount to access this restaurant. The name of the restaurant is misleading. There was no a la carte menu at least when I was travelling. All meals were buffets.
There are two elevators which go up to Deck 5. There is a flight of stairs to reach Deck 6 and the A la Carte Restaurant. There is a three-story atrium lobby – from Deck 2 to Deck 4. The reception is on Deck 2 while on the other two levels of the atrium are gilt shops. On Deck 5 is the Yangtze club – a fairly large lounge with bar and where all the lectures and performances are held. Next to the Yangtze club is the chamber of the ship doctor Dr Xu and adjacent to it the massage room. On deck 5 there are two games room mainly for Mah-jong. On deck 1 is the gym. All the cabins have private balconies and TV.

“Enjoyable 3 night Yangtze cruise on Victoria Anna”
We really enjoyed our 3 night Yangtze Cruise on Victoria Anna. The boat was great - not too crowded and the room (no upgrade) was clean and comfortable with nice big glass doors to see the views. The included activities were fun, and we also enjoyed going ashore on our own when we could despite being told in the daily notes that we couldn’t! We enjoyed meeting the other guests seated at our table, and the food was plentiful and pleasant. We were lucky with the weather – although it was quite hot, it didn’t actually rain during our trip. It was great being able to sit out on the covered deck in front of the Yangtze Club and watch the passage through the gorges with a nice breeze blowing to keep us cool.
Booking the cruise through Yangtze Cruises was easy and they kept in touch until we left for China. We followed their notes on getting our own taxis to and from the ship and had no trouble. We would definitely recommend a cruise on Victoria Anna to our friends and family - great value for money.

“Amazing Yangtze cruise”
We sailed the Victoria Anna, from Chongqing to Yichang on 17 May. We were celebrating our 30th Wedding anniversary. Along with us was our uncle from NJ. Being our first holiday in China & taking the cruise we were quite excited and also looking fwd to a few challenges, we were all vegetarians. Bertina Li helped me from the beginning with the bookings, replying promptly to all our queries, and most importantly taking care of our specific needs.
Victoria Anna is a fairly good vessel, and the crew really took good care of us. We had mentioned to the crew that we are vegetarians and they ensured that we had a good veggy selection at each meal. The entertainment on board was also very cheerful and every act was graceful.
Before disembark we had asked them to book a cab to the airport which they promptly did.

We are very sorry for our spelling mistakes on the web site. Many thanks for letting us know about that typo, and we have already corrected the typing. The name of the dish is actually “shredded chicken” which is really delicious.
Thank you again and hope you enjoy your sailing on the Yangtze River!
Thank you for the message. Are you wondering about the dishes for children onboard Victoria Anna? The cruise company prepared many kinds of Chinese and Western food and beverages for the three meals during your cruise. Besides the main courses, appetizers, and others, you could choose from the cakes, porridges, congees, milk, yogurt, juice, fresh fruits and salads, and some other dishes, so both you and your children would enjoy your dining time there. Also, if you need, you could tell the front desk in advance for at least one day to cook some special food for your children, and such service needs some extra charge.
Wish you a memorable cruising on Victoria Anna!
