The Yangzi Explorer have introduced a 200 yuan (US$32) per person “extra service fee” last year, in response to rising costs. The service charge may be required at the time of boarding or may be optional (like a tip) at the end of the cruise. Customers are advised to prepare an extra 200 yuan in case it is required. This cost can not be included in the cruise price due to its variable implementation.
