The newest President ship uses the double hull and double bottom structure of ocean cruise ships, and all rooms have safety equipments such as life-jackets. The guest rooms are decorated using eco-friendly materials that exceed national standards, protecting the health of our guests. The entire ships are constructed with fireproof materials, further ensuring the safety of everyone on board.
The ship’s state-of-the-art floating deck technology can keep guests from sensing any swaying. Their noise reduction system, another standard feature of ocean cruise ships, can effectively reduce the machine noise heard in guest rooms to a degree far lower than the national standard for five-star cruise ships. The bathing equipments are the same world famous brand products as those of five-star hotels. With the independent “new air” system, guests can enjoy the fresh air of Three Gorges even indoors.
Due to the increasing demands of convention tour, the ships also have conference rooms with simultaneous interpretation systems suitable for conferences whether there are a few or several hundred attendants, perfectly combining enterprise image with convention tourism.
Another emphasis in the design of the new ship is improving the quality and efficiency of the service. There are about 200 stewards providing comprehensive services onboard. On average, each steward services 2 or 3 guests, which greatly increasing the quality and response efficientcy of the service.
