Ah, so wonderful
Ah, so wonderful
Sandra Scott

The Century Legend cruise ship on China’s Yangtze River is the newest and most luxurious cruise ship. All of the cabins have a balcony and are exquisitely appointed. Most of the shore trips are included in the price plus there are wonderful on board activities including a state-of-the art movie theatre and mahjong rooms where novices can take lessons, plus there are informative presentations. Don’t miss the shore tours to the Three Gorges Tribe and to the Three Gorges Dam project.

Not to miss is the lecture on traditional Chinese medicine that includes information on acupuncture and acupressure. The 40-minute presentation explains that acupuncture is not wizardry but a way to stimulate the body’s own healing abilities. The presentation also includes a demonstration of Tai Chi. Tai Chai classes are held each morning and great way to start the day. Acupuncture treatments are available in the Zen Health Club Spa along with cupping, ear point treatment, scarping, and other holistic treatments.

The Spa offers a variety of rejuvenating massages including Chinese Kung Fu Massage that combines techniques that are designed to improve Chi and blood flow for better general health. Essential oil and hot herbal massages are also available. For the ultimate try the 120-minute Zen Spa Luxury Indulgence that includes head-to-toe massage with essential oils.
