About Century Paragon

As you embark your contemporary, elegant ship, a friendly, English-speaking crew and stunning 7-story atrium lobby welcome you aboard. The Century Paragon is charting a new course for Yangtze River cruising.

The ship features a state-of-the-art propulsion system that reduces vibration and decreases emissions to reduce environmental impact.
