About Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer
Elegant and stylish, the Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer is perfect for relaxed cruising through spectacular and ever-changing landscapes.
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 - in fact the vessel carries one member of staff for every guest on board.
Effortlessly stylish, the cabins are huge, and all have floor to ceiling windows to afford wonderful views of one of the most spectacular waterways on earth. The vessel also carries a staff of experienced, knowledgeable guides, enabling guests to join on shore excursions to learn about the river's history and ecology.
