There are a variety of options— Cruise ships, ferry boats and speed boats. Customers can choose according to budget, popularity, cruise company operators and other personal requirements.
Basing on popularity and budget, star-rated sightseeing ships come in a wide range of choices. The most popular ships are rated from 5-star ships such as President Prime and Victoria Jenna to 4-star ships like President 1. The better the rating, the more comfortable the ship.
Cruise company operators - Victoria Cruises are run by American company while all others are operated by Chinese companies. Most ships are new or have been refitted in recent years.
For customers wishing different experience or who have limited time, ferry boats and speed boats provide an alternative. Ferry boats are a main transport for locals using the river. They may be a challenge for adventurers as they are not as comfortable and do not cater to sightseers as the purpose built star-rated ships do. Speed boats can sail through the whole Three Gorges in a day with very short time stops at the best points and can serve as an alternative for tourists with limited time. We do not recommend ferry boats or speed boats to our customers for safety, comfort and overall enjoyment.
