Victoria Yangtze River cruise

We had to reschedule our Pacific Delight tour because of the attack and are now on
the Victoria Cruise. I can't find much about them on the web. Does anyone have any feedback?

Victoria is US managed and has the largest fleet on the Yangtze River. Pacific Delight has been working with Victoria since their very first voyage in 1994.

Here's so key information about Victoria which shuld make you more comfortable:

REPUTATION: Victoria Cruises has been the pre-eminent leader in Yangtze River cruising since 1994.

2. SIZE: Victoria Cruises is the only U.S. company that operates and manages the largest fleet of vessels sustaining international standards of quality and comfort on the Yangtze River.

3. COMFORT: Tasteful décor, inviting accommodations and air conditioned interiors pamper passengers enjoying an on-the-move look at truly exquisite scenery. Ships feature standard outside cabins and a variety of special suites.

4. EXPERIENCE: From multi-lingual cruise directors and river guides with vast amounts of knowledge to veteran captains and skilled crews, passengers benefit from years of individual expertise and impeccable service.

5. CERTAINTIES: Departures are guaranteed for all of Victoria Cruises’ year-round sailings.

6. AMENITIES: Beauty salons, mini spas, fitness rooms, libraries and gift shops are among the lures aboard the Victoria fleet. On-board treats also involve nightly entertainment, superbly prepared Chinese cuisine and Western fare, closed-circuit TV, and a wide range of activities.

7. SAFETY: Care of passengers in terms of safety and physical well-being is reflected in the latest navigational, communications and other equipment, careful maintenance as well as a health clinic and physician on every ship.

8. OPTIONS: A variety of itineraries, different lengths of cruises (from four to ten days between Shanghai and Chongqing including shore excursions) and numerous departure dates give vacationers (or those using the ship for meetings) an opportunity to select the Yangtze River cruise just right for them.

9. CONVENIENCE: Booking arrangements can be easily and expeditiously made through travel agents or the company’s reservations headquarters in New York.

10. MODERNITY: The current Victoria Cruises’ fleet is new. Its nine passenger ships (holding 150 – 170 passengers) were built between 1992 and 1999. Two brand new vessels will be introduced in 2002.

We took a Victoria cruise down the Yangtze last year and enjoyed ourselves very much. The accomodations weren't luxurious, but quite comfortable. The staff was very attentive and friendly and there was plenty to eat and lots to see. My only regret is that we went all the way from Shanghai to Chongqing -- a full 10 days. The best part of the river is the eastern end, between Wuhan and Chongqing. There's really not much to see on the western leg.

Emily,
I think you've gotten eastern and western mixed up. In the stretch between Shanghai and Chonqing, the Wuhan-Chongqing leg is the western leg.
