The "swanky" (CNN) superyacht was a luxury spa hotel in Finland, before the vessel was refurbished and towed to London's Royal Victoria Dock at a cost of US $67 million.The hotel epitomises "total luxury" (SquareMeal). 

It has a spiral staircase reminiscent of the Titanic's, a centre-piece chandelier and Art Deco interiors.On the top deck is a Prohibition era-style Laurent-Perrier champagne bar (open until 3 September), where you can enjoy specially created champagne cocktails with bespoke canapés.

You can sample the Afternoon Tea Under the Sea, a selection of sea-themed assorted cupcakes and sandwiches, or hit the third deck and head to the Sundown Bar for a cocktail while watching the sun set over Canary Wharf. The Lands End Restaurant serves British, Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.

The Symphony Spa has two treatment rooms and an outdoor relaxation deck. The rooms -- they're not referred to as cabins -- are "spacious and light" (The Daily Telegraph) and have tablets for ordering room service. Wi-Fi is free.

We booked lunch and it was delicious. We also enjoyed drinks in the bars and had a very good night's sleep.
Other Comments
We were on the bottom deck and the outside window needed cleaning to enhance the view over the dock. Also, we were disappointed that it was only a buffet breakfast. For a 4 start hotel we would expect to be asked what our choice of hot breakfast was, and to be served it at the table. I also saw one of the bartenders making a cocktail then licking the cocktail stirrer! Surely not acceptable.

Experiencing something different.

Under staffed in the bar areas. Dinner very good and waiting staff good. Breakfast staff untrained and disinterested, mostly foreign with little or no English. Buffet breakfast not kept topped up even though we were there at 10 o clock and it didn’t finish until 11. Checkout painfully slow.

The bed is so lovely, probably the best I've slept in and our room was a lovely size. We had really nice food in the bar and some strong cocktails! We booked this as an offer so the price was great, I'm not sure it would have felt as worth it had it been full price.

It was a bit disappointing that some of the surrounding bar's and restaurants were closed as this made the area a little lacking in ambiance
