Review of Blue Whale Cruiser, Yangtze River & Three Gorges Tour by April

Blue Whale Cruiser, Yangtze River & Three Gorges Tour

I was the ONLY ENGLISH SPEAKING PATRON on the ship! 85% of the tours and announcements made were in Chinese. I was very disappointed in that as well as the quality I this ship. It was a clean as it could be but the molding/caulking in the room was in much need of repair. The wall paper was stained and bubbling. The carpet was disgusting. I wore socks or shoes the entire time and would change my socks when I would go to sleep. The beds are hard/super firm which is preferred in china. The food was good but no variety a a westerner. No real entertainment on the ship. So it was a nice part of my trip to relax and nap and read. Expensive drinks. And the taxies that they "set up" in yichang were ridiculously over priced! $300-400 rmb to go to the airport! I'm glad I made to friends who worked on the ship. They hooked me up with a "black taxi" ride for $100 rmb. And of course with any shop the laundry prices were ludicrously over priced. The excursions sucked when I didn't understand any history of the sights since what they would say is 85% in Chinese and I got a few sentences in English to the five minute conversation in Chinese :-(
