Was rather worried after reading earlier reviews but we needn't have bothered. First sight of the ship was quite pleasing - not as large or as grand as some of the other ships we saw but not as bad as I thought. Our cabin was on the 9th deck. We had a balcony , which we didn't have too many chances to use because of the weather. The cabin was extremely small - but we were only using it to sleep in so not too much of a problem. The bathroom was tiny but the shower was great - iv had much larger and posher bathrooms that the shower has soaked everything in sight but this worked great. It is all inclusive now but we didn't come across anyone who had too much to drink. The spirits weren't as strong as in u.k but we found when we asked for e.g gin and tonic 50/50 you could taste the alcohol. The beer was great as was the wine. The food was plentiful . We ate in both the island and the beachcomber restaurants and again had no problems. The entertainment was outstanding - as good if not better than anything I have heard in the west end and broadway. All in all we had a brilliant week - apart from the weather and would I go again on the island escape - you bet I would
