I was in Shekou for a weekend teachers conference and they suggested that we stay at the cruise inn. Normally I find my own cheaper accommodations but the cruise inn prices were very reasonable. When I read the description that it was a ship turned into a hotel, I was a little skeptical, but when I arrived...It was LITERALLY a ship that they docked, built cement all around it, and turned it into a hotel. They really played up the nautical theme with the décor and it was just a unique experience being on a cruise ship, but looking out the window and seeing noting but dry land Shekou. I highly suggest this place for a brief stay in Shekou, especially if you are keen on unique and adventurous accommodations.

... the gauntlet of fake priests who smell of cigarettes and coffee and bestow a blessing of sorts on white tourists offer, them a bangle and ask for a "donation". They were no match for us who survived the Puskar Passport Priests and came out ahead, if a bit damp ;). It was all good natured, well on our part anyway.

... it was clever when the candlestick from Beauty and the Beast sang, 'Be Our Guest' and you could actually smell the cakes he was bringing out. Ben liked the bit where Aladdin was flying his magic carpet and you felt like you were flying with him. We also saw a show where they had live performances of the best bit in most of the Disney films.

... service at the airport we were coming. After several phone calls with the ship, they admitted they screwed up and sent a private car and driver for us and delivered us directly to the ship. Boarding was quick and easy, luggage was placed in our room. By now it is about 2:30 p.m. and we have a late lunch. We did some laundry from our Taiwan week. A steward saw us coming with our 'ditty bag' and opened the laundry room ...
