Island Escape only gets better
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Palma de Mallorca
l traveled once again on this ship,l have been many times as l have found them helpfull as i am disabled.l boarded in Palma where it is very easy for me as its only a short walk to the ship,The entertainment team will be on hand to smooth any problems l arrived to the ship from a hotel at Santa ponsa.l chose a single inside cabin as its cheaper than any other and afterall you only sleep in it.There was plenty of room for me,however the bed was too low for me and when l return to the ship next l will have to think how to raise the bed a bit.l didnt ask the cabin steward who had been helpful.At home l have special height beds ect to enable me to get up.On the first day there will be lifebelt drill ,if you have registered with reception a member of crew will collect you from you cabin .As l have been before l had no problem moving around the ship,in each lift there is a list of what to find on each deck..When in the Beachcomer Restaurant help was available for me,l also used the other More
dining areas the Oasis being the best at additional small charge.
Each morning a information sheet had been passed under the door detailing activities available Being 65 obviously l only enjoyed the adult activities mostly the Bounty lounge where demos/demonstrations and bingo,tv type game shows.Cafe Brasil was also a nice place to chill out where l was served by Flori who made me very wecome,
All the staff were very helpfull ,but l must encourage alll those traveling alown to seek out Philipa who meets almost daily with the solo travelers for a social meeting.
Each night ther were west end type shows and specialist UK acts.of a good standard.
l chose to book my shore excursions from the ship as they. said the ship would wait
if late I went on the Rome coach trip as i hade been before.l also went to Pompeii, and Amalfi coast tour Pompeii turned out to be unsuitable Amalfi was very nice,l also went on a boat trip which was worth it and had easy access. Less
