Ross Roberts, the CD, a Russ Abbot look-a-like with the voice of Dale Winton was fantastic. We enjoyed Mardi Gras and Jimmy Hart on deck7. Jimmy and the Brazilian duo were really friendly and they ended off our evenings which were packed out with cruisers dancing on every space they could find.
Unfortunately we had a few drunks on board, mostly a group from Northern Ireland, who drank the all inclusive alcohol from morning till morning; but on the whole the cruisers were friendly and good humoured.
The all inclusive alcolhol policy needs a re-think. Perhaps a time zone say from 5.00pm to 2.00am for all inclusive drinks, More outside which the booze should be paid for. This would stop the drunks spoiling a good time had by all.
So if you are not a snob and you are happy in a social club atmosphere, then the Island Escape is definitely for you. But if you'er looking for Diner Jackets and Tiaras then keep well away.
In general I loved our time on board this ship and I also enjoyed our time visiting Capri, Tuscania, Cagliari, Adjaccio and Menorca and would be happy to cruise on the Island Escape again. Less
Cabin review: OU5022
shower room was small and the washing facilities were well worn. the shower curtain didn't hold back the shower spray and so soaked the floor. The bed linen and towels were grey, however the cabin was spotlessly clean and although small was comfortable.
