If you have booked this cruise, you will have to go and enjoy which we tried to do, as was too late for us

It is a FERRY BOAT not a cruise; the facilities ie so called swimming pool for which there is only one is 21 feet long, sunbeds are 1.2 inch apart, people everywhere, 2 buffett restaurants which serve mainly the same food; terrible people eating everything in sight, hardly anything is cooked it is all packaged and put in the oven, the cabins are awful, together with the areas on the ferry boat. Entertainment team is just the ships entertainment team whom were very good, but do not expect too many other outside entertainment. They have a theatre, hurrendous pub and bingo on site(lovely); full of people with hardly any with any calibre or self respects, largest bellies ever; clothing was awful.

The pricing is hurrendous for this cruise, when it is dearer than the top 5 proper cruise companies.... this is not a cruise in any shape or form.

GOOD POINT: More STaff are relatively friendly(not overboard), captain was present on a few occassions and praised all his team Less

Cabin review: Island Escape

Cabins are awful everywhere.... you will feel the ferry boat rock whereever you are, even in the restaurant on top floor!
