Century River Cruises is offering cruises between China's ancient capital, Nanjing, to cosmopolitan Shanghai for four days/three nights downstream or upstream on Century SKY.

Until recently guests could only visit the historic city if they booked a long cruise between Chongqing and Shanghai, but from now on a regular luxury cruise service will operate between Nanjing and Shanghai on Century Sky, one of the ships owned by the leading cruise company on the Yangtze River, Century River Cruises, and which offers service on six decks.

Between sightseeing, passengers can keep fit in the state-of-the-art fitness room or relax in the quiet library, try the traditional Chinese board game Ma Jong or the art of Chinese calligraphy.

Tai Chi is organised for early morning risers on the observation deck which offers 360-degree views whilst evenings are filled with with folk dancing, performances of local opera and exuberant dancing displays.

Departures from Shanghai are every Sunday and departures from Nanjing are every Wednesday.

The promotional price for the cruise either starting from Shanghai upstream or Nanjing downstream is US$350 per person, per cruise. It includes all meals (except the embarkation dinner) and two daily shore excursions.
