Answered by Ms.Grace (China)

Dear Mr. Martin Wallis,
Thanks for your enquiry.
According to your requirments, we suggest you to take the YANGTZE GOLD 3(donw stream). There is no family cabin, so you have to book two cabins. The price of standard room for adult and the 13 years old child is CNY2700 per person, and the for the younger child is CNY2025.(including the tips)
Should you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Best regards,
Grace from CTD team.
