Have you ever slept in a boat surrounded by land? This is your chance! Perfectly located in downtown Shenzhen, many venues nearby as is the daily evening water show. Rooms are clean, good beds and good breakfast, although the sound level of CNN could be softer. It is a real boat so low ceilings, and round windows and slightly curved... More

Have stayed here twice. It is okay as it is near what could be classed as an expat area with lots of bars and restaurants. This is good as both times have stayed for 7 days. No Gym, No Pool, No Room Service as this is purely a hotel. I would probably not stay here again but worth staying once... More

Stayed for one night while on business but that was one night too much. Part of the ship has been converted to a nightclub and let me tell you it's no fun trying to sleep when all you can hear is loud and I mean very loud music at 3am! Called the duty manager who told me there was nothing... More

Successfully booked a room with eLong (same group as Expedia), but the next day they called me back saying that there were actually no rooms. On asking for explanations, I was told that the hotel had "forgotten to update their room status". Unforgivable on Cruise Inn and eLong's part.

Our school soccer team went to Shekou for a soccer tournament and we lived at the cruise inn, when we got there we saw a whole square in front of the hotel full of shops and restaurants and we were all excited, very good location at the popular "sea world". It took us a really long time to check in... More

Unique, friendly staff, clean but really hard mattresses.... A bit noisy if you get one of those rooms facing the sea world restaurants. Price wise, it's quite good comparing to its concept and operation. All in all its a nice experience and I would definitely do it again.

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
