Victoria Cruises is celebrating the launch of the newly revamped Victoria Jenna on China’s Yangtze River.
The six-year-old ship has undergone a complete redesign intended to bring the vessel up to speed with the rest of Victoria Cruises' newly renovated fleet. Victoria Cruises recently wrapped a fleet wide renovation project for the rest of its river cruise ships.
Victoria Cruises retained the same New York-based interior design firm used for its other fleet renovations. Like its sister ships, all staterooms aboard the Victoria Jenna have a private balcony from which guests can view the Yangtze River, and the optional Luxury Amenities program is also available for travelers seeking a VIP experience.
Perks provided via the Luxury Amenities add-on include personalized "white glove" service, upper deck placement, access to exclusive ship areas, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, exclusive happy hour, and enhanced culinary privileges, including a la carte service and wine and beer with dinner.
The Victoria Jenna rejoined the fleet on April 11 for Victoria Cruises' Three Gorges Highlights program between Chongqing and Yichang, which it will continue to sail with twice weekly departures on Mondays and Thursdays.
Starting at $980 per person, based on double occupancy, the Three Gorges Highlights voyage is offered with three- and four-night options (based on river direction), encompassing views of centuries-old temples, pagodas and stone carvings nestled along the river.
A standard shore excursion package is available for $90 per person and includes tours of Shibaozhai's famous red pagoda and the Three Gorges Dam, as well as a scenic journey on a traditional sampan through Goddess Stream, surrounded by beautiful peaks and teeming with local wildlife, from monkeys to mountain goats. Excursions may be substituted based on river conditions and other factors.
