Since 1993, Victoria Cruises has been the leader in luxury river cruising. Based in New York, Victoria Cruises established new standards of excellence for sailing China's Yangtze River when its first ship edged out of port in 1994. Their ships are all newly built or structurally rebuilt, and all refurbished with a modern blend of European-Asian design. The architecture emphasizes spacious rooms with modern amenities including private balconies, bathtubs, and cable TV. All ships are fully equipped with wi-fi and international telecommunications systems.
