Answered by Ms.Artemis from ChinaTravelDepot (China)

Thank you for your inquiry. We have Yangtze Cruises from Chongqing to Shanghai, Chongqing to Wuhan and Wuhan to Shanghai in December 2013. Is that OK for you? If yes, please reply this email or send all your requests to yangtzecruises@chinatraveldepot.com.
Since from November to February next year, it is the dry season for Yangtze River with low water level. So there is fewer ships during this time.
