Changjiang Cruises

CCOTC Changjiang Overseas Cruises

Changjiang Cruises (CCOTC Cruises) is operated by Changjiang Cruise Overseas Travel Co. (CCOTC) and now operates two luxury cruise ships at reasonable prices. Yangtze No.1 is a 4-star cruise ship, while the Yangtze No.2 is a 5-star cruise ship. In Spring 2018, the Chairman Xi Jinping took the cruise ship Yangtze No.1 to investigate the Yangtze River.

The Yangtze No.1 is the ONLY cruise ship that could sail through the Three Gorges Dam ship-lift and docks at Sandouping Port, and the passengers don’t need to change to another sightseeing boat during the optional excursion at extra cost. Both of the cruise ships provide cozy cabins onboard, making your Yangtze River cruise journey relaxed and comfortable.

There is no price difference, and the only difference is when you take a cruise from Chongqing, it is one day quicker. Cruises sailing from Chongqing to Yichang are 4 days and 3 nights, while Yichang to Chongqing cruises are 5 days and 4 nights (downstream cruises sail with the current and are a bit faster). Upstream and downstream cruises include almost the same sights and excursions.
