Pollution is a problem in almost all of China, merely thicker in some places than others, but that includes industrial areas along the Yangzi River. Of itself it isn't a reason not to visit China, or indeed to take the cruise (other reasons for not making that cruise part of a brief visit to China have been offered). On water as opposed to air pollution, you might find this interesting:

The comments on fumes were not mine, and the experience of them would vary according to the vessel chosen.

My friends who just returned from China said not to waste your time on the Yangtze River cruise. I've heard this from others too.

I took a 4 day Yangtze River cruise in Nov. I had no problem with pollution or fumes, but found that 4 days on the ship was too much down time for me. The scenery was pretty, and the three land excursions were interesting, but 4 days was too much time spent on the ship for me.

If you have enough time in China, why not take the Yangtze cruise? It is a nice experience. However, if your time is limited, it will not be a big problem to skip it.
