Regal China Cruise Highlights

China Regal Cruises has three ships cruising the Yangtze River: the Princess Sheena, Princess Elaine, and Princess Jeannie. It is the only Yangtze River cruise company to have been recognized with an award from Travel Weekly due to its high standard. The three sister ships were all built in Germany and are the only foreign built ships that cruise the Yangtze River. The ships are very sleek in design and feature state of the art engineering and stabilizers making each cruise quiet and virtually motionless.

The Ship:
The ship's interior is very nicely designed and decorated. Each staircase has a map of the entire ship making navigating it very simple. Each ship has two dining rooms. Both feature similar cuisine served in a buffet style. The buffet is a mix of Western and Chinese dishes. The ship has a bar and an observation lounge/library. Both are located in the bow of the ship and have windows on three sides which gave excellent views of the Three Gorges scenery, while sitting in comfort out of the weather. The bar features a large selection of western alcohol and wine, as well as China's famous Maotai Alcohol. The ballroom located on the top deck is where all of the performances and parties are held. It features a state of the art sound and lighting system. The performances themselves are excellent. They are performed by the ship's crew and they are extremely talented. Each deck has its own exterior walkway that encircles the ship, so that visitors wanting a little exercise can walk around the ship. Most ships cruising on the Yangtze to not have this feature and visitors are only able to walk back and forth on each deck.
