M.S. Yangzi Explorer

M.S. Yangzi Explorer

The Sanctuary M.S. 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 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. A doctor also travels onboard. The ship is ideally equipped to host special groups. Two private rooms are available for that special dinner with family and friends, or as a conference venue with all necessary audio-visual equipment for meetings or lectures. For larger groups, a two-floor theatre serves as an auditorium for a guest speaker, film presentation or meeting. The ship also has the most spacious and indulgent spa on board any cruise vessel on the Yangzi. With an area covering more than 300 square metres, the Yangzi Spa is a haven of tranquility and rejuvenation. With six treatment rooms, guests will have the opportunity to truly indulge and relax while on board. A varied menu of spa services, including massage and beauty treatments are available for your enjoyment.
