Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer

The Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer stands alone in terms of comfort and service. It is the only cruiser on the mighty Yangzi whose cabins and suites - some of the largest in the area - all boast private balconies from which guests can enjoy the Chinese panoramas as they glide by. Accommodating up to 124 passengers, it’s a uniquely boutique and intimate travel experience with warm and attentive service unavailable anywhere else on the river. Foodies can dine a la carte on the finest Chinese and international cuisines and learn to cook local delicacies with acclaimed chefs. Explorers can learn about the region with a variety of itineraries, on-board activities and site visits. Relaxation and indulgence is available in one of the river’s largest spa and fitness facilities; bookworms can curl up in the library, and those in search of beautiful sights can take in the views on the observation deck or be entertained in the on-board theater.
