*From May 2013, for an indefinite period, departure time for our Shanghai to Chongqing cruise will be 12:00 NOON instead of 3:00pm. Lunch will be provided on board. This change in departure time is due to construction along the Yangtze River between Nanjing and Maanshan, where the marine authorities have prohibited river traffic after 6:00pm. To insure that we will have time for sightseeing in Nanjing on day 2 of the Shanghai to Chongqing cruise, it will therefore be necessary to depart Shanghai at 12:00 noon on embarkation day, until further notice. Please check our website for updates on the completion of the construction along the river, and for any future adjustments to our schedule.
Itineraries and times are subject to change according to river conditions.
Included meals as noted in above itinerary: (B) = Breakfast (L) = Lunch (D) = Dinner
