China's Century Cruises Adds to Yangtze River Fleet
Century adds a 7th luxury river cruise ship, 'Century Legend' to its Yangtze fleet.
The new 398-passenger Century Legend is a sister ship to the Century Paragon, which came into service earlier this year.
These new inland waterway cruise ships were designed by European naval architecture firm Yran & Storbratten, which has done design work for a number of cruise lines, including Disney Cruises, Seabourn, Holland America, Viking River Cruises.
According to Wikipedia, the Yangtze is the longest river in Asia, and the third longest in the world. It flows for 6,418 kilometres (3,988 mi) from the glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in Qinghai eastward across southwest, central and eastern China before emptying into the East China Sea at Shanghai.
