Hi we did the trip in oct 2005 and in bejing it was -6 it was cold but as you progress the weather gets warmer and then hot the ship was really busy at the beginning due to the cold but as it got warmer you never saw anybody as they were on deck,it really is a trip of a lifetime,it is the best trip we have ever done,we have done 17 cruises and that one is the most memorable all the places you go are outstanding ,i can still smell and see all,i envy you going and we never go anywhere twice.have a super time..

Hi sorry about the delay we have just returned of a cruise , we would suggest you do the trips as the history, you need a guide and it will probabley be a one off trip and you would hate to miss any of it, it really is something else, enjoy all of it and absorb it like a sponge, it still is the best trip we have ever done.
