Activities

Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe revue, a Hubei bronze bells performance, Tibetan family tea, porcelain-making demonstrations, and visiting with children at a local school. These in-depth experiences are included as an essential part of discovering more about the places through which you cruise, and each activity is planned specifically to illuminate each itinerary.

Sometimes you want to dig a little deeper. We offer a series of onboard multimedia talks to shed light on the history and culture of the places you visit. Topics may include the Three Gorges Dam, China's dynasties, a history of Chinese culture, the Great Wall of China, the Terra Cotta Warriors, and key words and phrases in the Chinese language. These presentations provide a context for your own observations, enhancing your travel experience.

For breakfast, choose from our selections of pastries, cereals, breakfast meats, egg dishes, fresh fruit and selected cheeses. At lunch, select from the soup and sandwich bar, or a choice of entrees and dessert. And for dinner, you are treated to a five-course gourmet menu with regional specialties. You can also select from our regional wines to perfectly complement your meal. And wherever you sail, you will find enhancements reflecting your itinerary-it is all part of experiencing the local culture.
