Travel into the very heart of China along the great Yangtze River. Explore the very best stretches of this immense waterway, including the Three Gorges; one of the most celebrated sections of the river, in the comfort of the largest suites on the river on board Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer
The elegant Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer sets the standard for luxury cruising in China, with strong environmental commitments. Friendly and intimate, on board service is a highlight with an atmosphere more private club than cruise ship.
The most celebrated stretch of the Yangzi is the spectacular Three Gorges. Qutang Gorge, famous for its rolling waters and sheer cliffs, is the shortest and narrowest of the three, while Wu is characterised by majestic forest crowned peaks. Xiling, the longest, finishes at the Three Gorges Dam, the largest construction project ever undertaken.
Complementing the natural beauty of the river is a rich program of shore excursions and shipboard activities which highlight the wealth of China's cultural tradition as well as the river's history and ecology. Tai Chi classes, Chinese cooking and silk embroidery are just some of the diversions available, while children are well catered for too with kite flying, mask making and calligraphy on offer. In between activities the Huang Ding Spa beckons. There's also a fitness centre, sauna and beauty salon on board.
Occupying four decks, the ship boasts the largest and best-appointed cabins on the river. Each has floor to ceiling picture windows, private balconies and en suite bathroom. Dining is a delight, with a team of internationally trained chefs delivering innovative à la carte menus featuring the finest of Chinese and continental cuisine.
