Victoria Cruises(USA)

The USA Victoria fleets are the only American managed cruise ships to ply the Yangtze River. These are the Victoria Katarina, Victoria Anna, Victoria Queen, Victoria Prince, Victoria Star, Victoria Empress and Victoria Rose. All seven ships have a crew dedicated to ensuring the very best of international service standards and facilities.
Victoria Katarina and Anna, the latest addition to the Victoria fleet, is setting a new standard in cruise ship design for Yangtze River cruising.

The premier ship is constructed with Victoria Cruises personal touches blending both modern and elegant architecture. The Victoria Katarina takes luxury cruising on the Yangtze to a whole new level with its generous cabin space, floor-to-ceiling windows, and private balconies opening up to breathtaking views.
