Ship Facts: Island Escape Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Escape Deck Plans
Disappointing 6th cruise
- Our party consisted of the ages 13,18,50, 56,77 and 85

- We had all cruised 5 times before with Thomson ,twice before on this ship

-We were all disappointed with the tired looking ship ,the shower was looking tatty,the refit has not extended to the cabins

-Two nights of entertainment were repeated the shows were excellent but we were only onboard for 7 nights so can't understand how this happened!

-The drinks we find reasonable -at normal pub prices

-The ship was very crowded it is very hard to find a sunbed on the day at sea

-This ship struggled with the rough seas most days on the Atlantic -being a converted ferry .I think it should be kept for the Med or Red sea routes only.

-We have always loved our Thomson cruises ,we love the shows and the food but there will have to be some improvements made before we go again
