The MS Yangzi Explorer offers a more intimate and luxurious alternative, with a maximum of 124 guests enjoying the comforts of the largest cabins and suites on the river – along with a 1:1 crew to passenger ratio. All cabins have floor-to-ceiling windows with access to private balconies, and are equipped with a private bathroom, mini bar and LCD satellite TV. The four super suites – Mandarin, Jade (both 81 square metres), Celestial and Imperial (110 square metres) – have separate bedroom and living areas and combine detailed Chinese décor with the greatest modern comforts. Life onboard is relaxed and unhurried, and embraces a fabulous range of facilities and activities, including a two-floor theatre and ultra-spacious spa. This is the smallest and most exclusive ship cruising the Three Gorges region, the scenic heart of the Yangzi. She sails downstream from Chongqing to Yichang over 4 days (3 nights) from Thursday to Sunday and upstream between the two cities over 5 days (4 nights) from Sunday to Thursday each week from spring to autumn. Group excursions with knowledgeable local guides to dramatic natural sights and cultural and technical marvels are limited to groups of less than 20 and retain the feel of a private tour. Messing about on the river is rarely this special. The Yangzi Explorer was built in 1995 and refurbished in 2008. It’s a 5-star luxury vessel that is one of the smallest that operates overnight cruises on the Yangtze River in China. The 300-foot long vessel carries 124 passengers and 130 crew members.

Staterooms are very spacious ranging in size from 333 square feet to 1183 square feet. As another added bonus, 100 percent of the staterooms have balconies.
