Upper Deck or Lower Deck?

To help you choose a favorite deck on Yangtze Explorer, you can know more about the features of upper deck and lower deck.

Features of Upper Decks:

Cabins on upper decks aren’t always the best on the ship, but many Suites including Jade Suite and Mandarin Suite are typically located on upper deck. A major bonus of being near the top of Yangtze Explorer is the fantastic view. The higher the deck, the better and more panoramic the view. Besides, if you want to enjoy the sunshine or Three Gorges scenery on the sun deck, you might choose a cabin on a high deck (like deck 4). Moreover, if you would like to attend activities or go to the bar, you can choose a higher deck for some entertainment facilities like Library, Peony Room and Lotus Room are located.

Features of Lower Decks:

For travelers with mobility difficulties, accessible cabins area likely to be located lower on the ship. Lower decks (like deck 1) are close to areas of embarkation and disembarkation, as well as front desk, main lobby, main dining hall, so it shouldn’t be far to get to most places you’d like to go. If you are prone to very easy seasick (It would not be a problem for 99 percent of travelers ), you’d better choose a cabin at the middle of ship.
