Yangtze River Three Gorges cruises have been very popular recently since they fully resumed last month, with a very large number of people taking them. It's a hassle-free journey, convenient and not tiring, entertaining and suitable for the whole family to travel together, so it's widely loved by passengers.
Previously, I have also published many articles about this kind of luxury cruise, including some ride strategies have been detailed. However, I recently from many readers' inquiries, and found a few problems I previously ignored, but also the general public are not clear rules. Today I summarized a total of 6 points of content, the following I will give you a careful explanation.
One: The first day on board the cruise ship is not to provide meals
Passengers who choose to take this Three Gorges cruise should know that meals are included on board, and they are buffet style throughout, and the food is very good. Indeed you know all the right information, a total of 200 kinds of dishes on board for several days, including all meals throughout, can make you eat very well, even on the last morning is eaten breakfast before disembarking the ship.
But it is the dinner after the first day of boarding that is not included, so either you eat and then get on the ship, or you get on the ship and eat the buffet, but you have to pay for this meal, which is about $60. So if you don't want to eat on the ship passengers, you have to eat your dinner early and board the ship. Why do you have to board the ship early, this is what I will say below as a rule of thumb.
Two: Early boarding to choose a good room location
Three Gorges cruises are divided into two types of trips: those that go on the water (Yichang to Chongqing) and those that go off the water (Chongqing to Yichang). The downriver trip is from 6pm to 8pm at Chaotianmen Pier, and the upriver trip is from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at the Three Gorges Visitor Center in Yichang by shuttle bus. Whether on or off the water you try to be the first to board the ship, because the room location can be chosen, late is almost arranged, there is no way to choose.
There are rooms on the left and right side of the ship, but the Qutang, Wu and Xiling Gorges of the Three Gorges are all on the south side of the Yangtze River. And you take the Three Gorges cruise is very important purpose is to visit the Three Gorges scenery on board ah, so do not look at this point is just a tip, but is the most important thing, generally I do not say no one thought, only by luck distribution.
Three: the number of boarding does not have to make up an even number
I guess we all know that the rooms of the Three Gorges Cruise are generally two to a room, and there are no single rooms. So it is generally believed that there is no way to arrange for a single person, unless you make up the difference in the price of a double room, you can live alone, or choose the kind of very expensive family room.
In fact, there is no need for this, the room can be extra bed, although the extra bed of this person also have to charge, but many ships extra bed of this person charge is calculated according to the regular price of about 70%, so there is no need to deliberately make up an even number of people to board the ship, or to make up the difference in single room price.
Four: now this special period to prepare what materials to board the ship
This is also something that many people are concerned about, so I'll talk about the rules of boarding now as well. The first is two codes, one is the health code, one is the trip code, then you have to prepare the 48-hour nucleic acid test results, and then wear a good mask, and finally, you bring your ID card, these five things can be. The rest is what you need to carry with you, this depends on your own needs.
5: If you have special dining requirements, you can talk to the main desk when you board the ship, and the galley will prepare separately according to your requirements.
Meals on Three Gorges cruises are all buffet style and very generous, as you basically know. However, many people have special requirements for food and drink, either because of their ethnic beliefs or because of their own health reasons. This is also taken into account on the cruise ship, as long as you put forward your request in advance, the cruise ship will be made according to your needs, so that you do not have to worry about the dining issues. And this service is free of charge, no extra charge.
Six: if you drive can not take the car on a cruise ship
This is the most asked question I've found, and as I write this article, people are still asking about it. The Three Gorges Cruise has a boat that allows people and cars to ride together, but it's not a luxury cruise ship and the itinerary is different. There is only one boat that allows people and cars to ride together, and that is the New Gaohu. The entire first floor of this ship is for cars, and the upper floors are for people. However, the overall decoration and accommodation is much worse, and there are no entertainment facilities on board. People and boats are charged separately, people are charged according to the class of room they live in, and cars are charged according to size.
Today is the Yangtze River Three Gorges luxury cruise some small rules and experience that few people know, is my previous article some supplement, but read this article friends should be able to feel this full of dry goods, are very practical.
