Very impressive on entry and rooms are clean and shipshape (ha ha) unfortunately though unless you are used to extremely hard mattresses and slightly deaf the positives end there. There is a turn down service that provides a chocolate and closing of the blinds. The metal construction of the ship means that noise travels and despite quality finishes the use... More

Great hotel, great service, and great location in Sea World. International restaurants all around as soon as you walk out of the front door. First hotel ever to provide a free can of beer in the room, as well as the traditional free water.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It's one of a kind hotel in a real cruise ship. The interior is so thoughtful and done with a great taste. The bay area in evening reminds of a board walk in Atlantic City and have world class food options including an Indian restaurant called Bombay. The sports bar in this... More

Check-in was fast, the room was clean and staff were polite. Bed was truly as per what others had commented - hard and not comfortable Price was pretty high. Perhaps that's the price you have to pay for a clean hotel room.

Whilst on a business trip the party I was with did a tourist day to She Kou and we had a drink on this ship that is just on the main tourist area, it was fun and very very hot, the place during the day was strangely deserted of tourists, but we enjoyed their hospitality. Worth a visit if you... More

Do not stay here for the rooms, the service, the location or the food. No, stay here only if you have a true appreciation for over the top "China kitsch" that leaves you shaking your head in bemusement. The hotel is a cruise ship that has had only minimal alterations made, and it feel more "Poseidon Adventure" than "Love Boat".... More

It is also a short 5 minute taxi ride to the ferry terminal, if you want to head to Hong Kong or Macau. The Szechuan restaurant located toward the bow (outside enterance) has great spicey... More

The hotel rooms are clean but the whole hotel stinks like there is lots of stale food around. They really need to invest in some air freshners. Alos the housekeeping needs to learn some... More
