You’ll never have to worry about sea-sickness aboard this fabulous cruise ship. Turkey’s Queen Elizabeth Hotel and Spa, which reportedly cost about $50 million to build, was built to resemble a harbour. The gigantic cruise liner is the main hotel, and then there are smaller villas, also designed as ships, docked about a collection of swimming pools.

I have to admit the place seems a little cheesy, however the 325-room hotel has all the luxuries; "a fitness center complete with saunas, Turkish baths, shock pools, steam rooms and Jacuzzis, a spa and wellness center offering a variety of therapies and treatments," says the hotel’s web site.

The Queen Elizabeth Hotel is located in Göynük, between the Toro Mountains and the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Stats for Cruise Ship Hotels on Land Trending: Older & Mild
