Specialist Knowledge

Need some help with your trip? Our advisors have travelled extensively and using their firsthand knowledge & experience can help craft your perfect holiday.

Century Paragon and Century Legend are deluxe sister ships that took their maiden voyages in 2013, making them amongst the newest cruise ships on the Yangtze River. We feel that they offer guests outstanding value for a luxury 5 star standard cruise. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive and there is a range of on-board cultural activities and facilities.  Chinese and western cuisine is served at meal times and the itineraries in both directions allow for a large degree of flexibility. All bedrooms come with ensuite showers, desk, seating area and a private balcony.
