Revolutionising Chinese luxury river cruising with its sister the Century Paragon, the Century Legend is a 7-deck elegant ship fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and top-quality amenities. 

A technological marvel, the Century Legend sails the Yangtze River with its decreased-emission propulsion system, a pillar-less multifunction lounge and the largest indoor swimming pool on any river cruise ship.

On board you can be sure that you’ll never have a shortage of activities to do, such as watching a film at the luxurious red velvet cinema room, browsing the shelves at the number of shops, or grabbing a book from the stocked library.

Cuisine and Dining on Century Legend

The ship’s main venue is the Restaurant. With an elegantly simple design, you can enjoy the sumptuous Chinese cuisine on board, prepared with fresh local ingredients and accompanied with complimentary wine, tea or coffee for that finishing touch. 

For some casual relaxation and discussion you can go to the Multifunctional Lounge, where you can be treated to a wonderful selection of wines, beers and spirits by an amazing bartender at the bar. 

For the finest dining experience, reserve a seat at the VIP restaurant to be able to dine on exclusive specialty dishes served by the ship’s expert chefs. With luxurious décor and a prime location on the sun deck, this is without a doubt the most regal part of this ship.

Entertainment on Century Legend

With Avalon, our onboard ship experience is as lively and captivating as your time on shore! Get behind the scenes as you tour the Galley and Bridge. Join new friends for special events or movie nights. 

Attend our exclusive Local Favourites activities—like beer and wine tastings, demonstrations by local artisans, and talks by local experts about the areas through which you're traveling. We even bring local entertainers on board so that you can gain a full appreciation for the region and its culture.

Spa & Fitness on Century Legend

Recreation on Century Legend
