Congrats on discovering the hidden gems of Azamara cruises. Deck 7 is better than 6 IMHO. You are rarely close enough to the shore to matter. I would gues Port would get more of the evening sun. For recommendations there is a better site to ask or look for the answer as far more contributions - It is easy to find recommendations of local tour operators and hotels etc, - go to a browser and enter 'message asia cruise' and the first link returned should give you all the info you need.
What is the weather like in mid February for this cruise? I am thinking of booking for Feb 14 - but not sure if going to really cold at that time.
If you "Google" "Climate + Town + Date" you'll get several web site with the info. you need. Seoul in Feb. is much much colder than UK. Beijing even more Brass Monkey. Shanghai should be much warmer.

We have just been on a cruise to simular places, Hongkong, shanghai, Singapore, etc, don t wish to put you off, but be prepared for lots of forms to fill in, every port you arrive in. very interesting places. hope you have a lovely time.
We are on this cruise from 17/1/09 back to back with south east asia for 28 days deck 7.When we return in feb I will report on the cruise which you may find usefull.Do some homework in the meantime regarding your visa for China.Its not cheap or easy.
China Visa, we have just collected ours, the Visa office is up and running on line, you can down load and fill in your forms( with photo) and send off about a week is required. We live near to London so I went , expecting a wait of some hours, I was able to select day and time slot. 20 Mins. I was in and out even quicker three days later for pick up.About £80 each compared £228 offered by some visa companies. Well Done China Visas. incidently the charge reflects what the U.K. charges for their Visas, our friends in Cyprus were charged about £25.
When are you due to sail on this cruise - as i have just returned from a 2 week trip on it - same iten as yours?
