Tai Chi Chuan

The term Chuan refers to a school or method of boxing or combat. Tai Chi Chuan is a sophisticated method of fighting based on the reconciliation of dynamically interacting forces. Daily practice of Tai Chi promotes mental clarity and a healthy body, assists with balance and helps the circulation of the blood. Tai Chi is also a vehicle for the realisation of surpassing beauty. We offer Tai Chi early mornings to begin the day.


They offer lectures on Chinese history and culture which add insight and depth to the cruise experience. Topics may include the evolution of the dam project and its importance to China, Chinese medicine, poetry by many of the famous Chinese sages, Chinese language, Chinese traditional brush painting, dumpling wrapping, etc.

Bring your cameras and your smiles, as our crew presents some of China's most elaborate fashions dating back to the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD). A variety of traditional costumes from all regions of China will reflect China's cultural diversity.

Cabaret Shows

Their crew puts on a performance not to be missed! Singing, dancing, music! The cabaret show is also an opportunity for passengers to display any special talents they may have, whether it be shaking a leg, or curling the tongue...anything! This is a wonderful opportunity to unwind and enjoy the experience while cruising on the Yangtze with Victoria.
