Victoria Cruise Lines is immersing guests in a high-tech spectacle of Chinese culture with the introduction of a new optional shore excursion that brings travelers to experience the “Return to the Three Gorges” live-action performance.

Focused on landscapes and the environment, the show presents scenes from popular Chinese poems using original choreography and high-tech projections all set on a river stage.

“It’s an outdoor performance with the Three Gorges as its backdrop presented on a river stage with remarkable effects and choreography. The show is truly one-of-a-kind and something our passengers will never forget,” said Larry Greenman, manager of public relations and customer service for Victoria Cruise Lines, in press materials.

The “Return to the Three Gorges” show will operate as an optional excursion near scenic Qutang Gorge for passengers departing Yichang on the upstream 5-day Three Gorges Highlights itinerary. Passengers departing Chongqing on the 4-day Three Gorges Highlights downstream itinerary can opt for the “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” live-action musical and acrobatic performance presented in an outdoor setting on Three Gorges Harbour in Zhongxian. The excursion is priced from $49 pp. Guests can also purchase a combo package that includes a tour of White Emperor City, plus the show for $73 pp.
