Leo,

Just returned to Singapore one hour ago. Sent my message in WhatsApp.

I was cut off from the rest of the world because Google, gmail and Facebook are blocked in China.

I have been in many cruises before in Europe, US and South East ASIA but the Century Legend is most outstanding.

I understand that it was built in 2013 and it looks very well maintained and I am impressed with what the Chinese are doing with the cruises.

I have read many reviews of horror stories on Chinese cruises and I held my breath when I decided to join the Yangtze 3 gorges cruises.

Apart from the incident with the porter who demanded 100 CNY for carrying my luggage I was well taken care of by the hotel manager when I complained that it was so hot in my cabin.

3 times a day a room attendant will visit my room to ensure that it is kept at a comfortable temperature with an Air cooler.

I met some passengers in the train from Yichang to ZJJ and the complained how terrible the cruise was with the Yangtze Gold and Victoria cruises. In fact I passed by the Yangtze Gold and Victoria cruises and they all look so old and badly maintained.

My Cabin was very comfortable after they lowered the temperature with air cooler and the meals were civilised. No need to rush for food like the other boats and no need to upgrade to a different dining room.

The other gripe is that it was raining everyday and we could not admire the beauty of the 3 gorges.

I made some good friends in the cruise and we did things together.

The next trip will be going upstream in the 3 gorges and hopefully there will be another new boat and definitely NOT SEPTEMBER!!

None of the passengers I met had been swindled by the porters because their travel agent arranged the porterage. Perhaps you can think of Creative ways to provide porter service for dependent Travelers who booked thru you.

Or you advised the independent traveller about porters upon arrival @ boat because there are many flight of stairs to climb whereas I saw travel Sgt st drive near the dick with the luggage
