The Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer introduces a new standard of cruising in China - more intimate and luxurious. With the largest cabins and suites on the river, all with private balconies, as well as the highest crew to passenger ratio on the river of 1:1, this is a Yangzi cruise unlike any other.
Carrying just 124 passengers, compared to the 300 plus accommodated on other cruise ships, the Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer offers the finest and most personalised service on the river. Onboard facilities include a la carte dining, a luxury spa, an observation deck, 24-hour room service, a two-floor theatre, library, and beauty and fitness facilities. The ship also has the most spacious and indulgent spa on board any cruise vessel on the Yangzi.
The East meets West menus take food lovers on a tour of authentic local delicacies and international flavours - the quality of the eating and drinking is a hallmark of the Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer experience. There's a team of internationally trained chefs and a well-stocked wine cellar - choose from complimentary house reds and whites, as well as the finest French labels. Soft drinks, house wine and local beer are unlimited at mealtimes.
At breakfast and lunch, buffets extend a range of continental classics and Chinese dishes - start with just-squeezed fruit juices and house-baked pastries one day and feast on freshly steamed dim sum the next. Afternoon tea isn't just about the homemade cakes and brewed-how-you-like-it tea or coffee - the servers also share with you the secrets to the specialist blends on board.
Chinese banquets are legendary - and so is the Taste of China farewell dinner. It's a feast of tasty dishes, such as west lake beef broth, Yangzhou rice and dory fish with vermicelli. As well as this carnival of flavours, the parade features characters dressed as the Emperor, Empress and concubines with a folklore-telling Lion Dance.
