Victoria Cruises is continuing its partnership as the exclusive cruise provider for all of Ritz Tours' China programs which incorporate a Yangtze River component in 2015.
This year, Ritz Tours has selected two Victoria Cruises vessels: the Victoria Jenna - the line's most recent build - and the recently renovated Victoria Anna. The ships will sail four applicable China Series itineraries as well as the Majestic China & Yangtze River China Premiere Series program.
The China Premiere Series tour includes five-star hotel accommodations throughout Beijing, Xi'an, Guilin and Shanghai as well as a three-night Yangtze River cruise in a luxurious private balcony Executive Suite on the Victoria Jenna.
Passengers will enjoy Victoria Cruises' Executive Amenities Program featuring a host of VIP additions including "white glove" service, access to exclusive ship areas, complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access, enhanced dining privileges, shoe shine service and reserved seating for evening entertainment (must be reserved in advance).
Rates for the Majestic China & Yangtze River program start at $5,000 per person, based on double occupancy (international airfare is additional), which includes access to shore excursions such as the Three Gorges Dam, a sampan experience along one of the Yangtze's tributaries and a trip to the 12-story pagoda at Shibaozhai, often referred to as "The Pearl of the Yangtze."
Ritz Tours also offers more departures with the China Deluxe Series itineraries, which also feature five-star hotels starting at $1,999 per person, at double occupancy basis (international airfare not included). Travelers who book one of these tours by February 28, 2015, will receive an additional discount of $200 per couple.
All Ritz Tours vacations feature five-star hotel accommodations, comprehensive sightseeing, expert English-speaking guides, and complimentary en-route Travelex traveler's insurance protection.
