President No. 7
5 Days Yangtze cruise from Yichang to Chongqing
Name In English： M/V President 7
Building Standard： ★★★★★+
The luxury cruise ships President VII & VIII will begin their voyage in April, 2013. As sister ships of the same class and design, they are 146.8 meter in length and 20.2 meter in width, making them the largest cruise ships Changjiang Shipping has designed so far. They each contain 215 luxury standard rooms, 13 luxury executive rooms on the top deck, and 2 presidential suites on the fore side of 3rd deck, totaling 230 rooms for 460 guests. We also considered the needs of family customers when designing the luxury standard rooms, 100 of which can be upgraded into triple rooms for families, giving each ship a total capacity of about 580 guests.
Among the facilities on President VII & VIII are the iconic main lobbies, the elegant double-decker dining rooms decorated with hollow sculptures, multi-functional performance hall and high-end internet cafes. Each room is equipped with an integrated bathing system, and has its own balcony, giving guests the great view of Yangtze River. The new ship design has also made great improvements in terms of safety, traveling comfort and ergonomics.
For the safety of the voyage, President VII and VIII utilize the double hull and double bottom structure of ocean cruise ships, and all rooms have safety equipments such as life-jackets. The guest rooms are decorated using eco-friendly materials that exceed national standards, protecting the health of our guests. The entire ships are constructed with fireproof materials, further ensuring the safety of everyone on board.
For traveling comfort, the ships’ state-of-the-art floating deck technology can keep guests from sensing any swaying. Their noise reduction system, another standard feature of ocean cruise ships, can effectively reduce the machine noise heard in guest rooms to a degree far lower than the national standard for five-star cruise ships. The bathing equipments are the same world famous brand products as those of five-star hotels. With the independent “new air” system, guests can enjoy the fresh air of Three Gorges even indoors. The largest Spa among inland cruise ships allows guests to relax themselves after a day’s traveling. Each ship is also equipped with the complete set of service and entertainment facilities include the largest indoor constant-temperature pool among inland cruise ships, bar, luxury cinema, massage room, sauna, beauty salon, cigar club, shopping center, print shop, currency exchange, gym, internet cafe, laundry, library, mail service and infirmary.
From the wheelchair passages throughout the ships, to children’s play rooms, to the full-view dining rooms on the top deck, the ships are designed with ergonomics and the motto of “happiness first”. Due to the increasing demands of convention tour, the ships also have conference rooms with simultaneous interpretation systems suitable for conferences whether there are a few or several hundred attendants, perfectly combining enterprise image with convention tourism.
As upgrades from our President Flagship, aside from the further improvements of our hardware, improving the quality and efficiency of our service is another emphasis in the design of President VII & VIII.
The new design puts a clear division between public areas and resting areas. The 2nd-4th decks are exclusively for guest rooms, while the guest rooms and entertainment areas on the 5th and 6th decks are also divided by a wide central hall. The entertainment areas all have advanced sound insulation facilities, while large entertainment facilities such as cinema, pool, sauna and gym are all located under the main deck. Those designs ensure all guests can rest easy.
On each ship, about 200 stewards provide comprehensive services. On average, each steward services 2 or 3 guests, greatly increasing the quality and response efficiency of our service. Whether it’s dining, guest room or entertainment services, professional personnel can give guests the help they need.
In terms of food, President VII & VIII have a special “food quality assurance system”. Exquisite food are made in clean and tidy enclosed kitchens, and delivered to the guests via highly efficient channels. All food can be delivered to you swiftly, whether you are at the dining room or in the bar, on the deck or in your own room.
