Butterworth - Answered a Question by Hargreaves (04 May 10 21:20)

Recent reviews for Carnival group ships said they departed from a terminal on Hong Kong Island, check with your TA to find out where your ship will be berthed and then go to www.tripadvisor.com when you have an area to search, a Kowloon side hotel will be an expensive taxi ride if its on the island.

One more thought for you. When I was trying to book The Salisbury for our visit last April I kept getting the fully booked message until I realised that it was because they had not "opened" their reservations diary that far ahead. If you still have The salisbury as your first choice try enquiring for earlier months via the website until you get an idea of when they release rooms.
