Regal China Cruise Deck Plan

China Regal Cruises,the only 5-star western managed Yangtze River Cruise company, has three German built sister ships, The Princess Sheena, Princess Jeannie, and the Princess Elaine. Their three ships are almost identical to each other, only having subtle differences. Each ship is a floating luxury hotel offering the highest standards to discriminating travelers to view the wonders of the Three Gorges area. All Three ships were designed with state-of-the-art engineering and stabilizers to make for quiet journeys and virtually motionless passages. Since China Regal Cruises' ships were designed and built in Germany, every aspect of the ship was built to the highest standards.
