Ship Facts: Island Escape Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Escape Deck Plans
Confound the Critics
What a great cruise, it ticks all may boxes, great value, excellent food, fabulous entertainment, crew helpful and attentive and the atmosphere so relaxing. Ok - the ports of call may not be inspiring, Santa Cruz, Las Palmas, Funchal, Agadir and Arrecife, but travelling overnight, means you have a full day to explore. The ship is in need of updating, but the cabins are clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space to sun bathe, lots of activities during the day, a really good cross section of people creating stimulating conversations.

The plus for me and my wife, both in our early fifties, was the evening meals, the formal shows and the more relaxed "butlins" style partiscipation shows.

In short something for everyone. Yes you hear people moaning about this and that, but if you got a good deal on the price, then you really cannot complain or match the value for money and I have cruised on the QM2.

So start the holiday with an open mind, be clear about what you want from the cruise, understand what your priorities are think about the lousey weather in Britain.
