Victoria Katarina

Victoria Katarina set a new standard in cruise ship design for Yangtze River cruising when it was inaugurated in 2004 and completely renovated in 2010. The premier ship was constructed with Victoria Cruises personal touches blending both modern and elegant architechture. 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.
