Onboard Amenities

Spacious Public Areas

In designing the Century Glory cruise ship, the team reduced the number of cabins to offer more public areas and recreational spaces. As we believe that the comfort and entertainment of the journey are just as important as the destination.

Double-deck Main Dining Room

For the first time on the Yangtze River cruise ships, Century Glory cruise ship uses the small dining tables (for 2-4 people) in the main dining room – the Globe Restaurant. The Century Glory has innovated the traditional 8-10 people round table dining experience on other Yangtze River cruise ships into a more comfortable and relaxed dining mode. The moment that the guests enter the dining room, they could see the Yangtze River scenery, because the glass walls on both sides of the restaurant are entirely transparent.

Pavilion VIP Restaurant of Pan-Asian Cuisines

The Pavilion VIP Restaurant on Deck 4 offers the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Western styles, characteristic Chongqing hotpot, and other pan-Asian food. No matter where you are from, star chefs can offer tailor-made menus and diverse and delicate food.

Extreme Spacious Top Deck

Century Glory uses the 2000 square meters on the top of the ship on Deck 7, creating the most spacious Top Deck among the Yangtze River cruise ships.

The Panorama Cafe

The Panorama Cafe is located in the bow of Deck 3, and it may be the best scenic cafe with the Yangtze River cruise scenery. Suite passengers can enjoy private gathering time here.
