During the trial period, the cruise is scheduled to be operated every weekend, with the capacity of 450 passengers. The ticket price is 280 RMB (US$44), and a variety of Shanghai snacks are served on the ship.


During the cruise journey, visitors can see many famous landmarks along both banks of Huangpu River, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jinmao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center and Yangpu Bridge. In addition, the Yangshupu Water Plant, a British-style castle architecture opened in 1883, is another scenic spot included in the cruise. Moreover, the folk cultural performances with a Shanghai flavor can be also presented.
