Sanctuary Cruises

Cruising on the Yangtze River is a truly unique experience, with Sanctuary Cruises being the latest addition for the discerning traveler.

The Yangtze Explorer is the smallest and most exclusive cruise boat plying the waters of the stunning Three Gorges region of China.

Enjoy the discreet yet attentive service and carefully-designed menus, as well as majestic scenic beauty, and share the growing concern over the construction of the Three Gorges Dam Project — the largest dam project ever attempted on Earth.

Alongside a whole range of sights and tours, there are a lot of on-board activities and facilities, such as educational lectures, video libraries and internet access.
