Answer by k l
I’ve been to the Yangtze Cruise and took Anna, which was a splendid trip.

Janna is a new ship and I searched some info for you.

Victoria Jenna, the newest ship in the Victoria Cruises fleet edged out of port along China’s Yangtze River on April 26, 2009. The ship is being built to the highest international standards; it has the most suites of all vessels plying these mighty waters. At a gross tonnage of approximately 8,000, the five-passenger-deck Victoria Jenna is the largest ship in the company’s fleet; the room breakdown is as follows: 149 standard cabins, 35 junior suites, three deluxe suites and two Shangri-La Suites.

Answer by Mamie
The Chinese always called it the Chang Jiang. The pronunciation was changed to Yangtze by misinformed westerners. Just like the name of the capital of China – Beijing. For years, westerners called it Pepin or Peking, etc. Western ears do not hear Chinese sounds well and western mouths cannot copy the sounds well. Same thing for Chinese ears hearing western sounds.
