Ship Facts: Island Escape Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Escape Deck Plans
Excellent cruising experience in the Med.
We wanted a change from the yearly Gold Holidays and my partner reached the age of 60 so instead hotelling it was cruising for the first time.

we thought it was brilliant,nice ship although getting a bit old,but kept it very clean.(your cabin steward keeps your bed and cabin clean)

nice cabin on deck 8,upgraded to Pemier Cabin.lovely view from there but it seems to be THE SMOKERS DECK and they sit in front of you window,a bit annoying. the air conditioning can be adjusted in your cabin and was fine.

food on board this ship was excellent ( always hot)and plenty restaurants to have your dinner.

crew are ever so helpful!!! being a money free ship was very useful,just an account starts when you arrive as you have to pay for your drinks(pub prices)

we did not have the drinks "package" as we both are limited alcohol drinkers.



we did not go on any executions due to walking problems,Gibraltar was nice,enjoyed our walk & shopping there.(duty free)

it was very hot where ever we went,30-32 degrees,too hot to walk a lot.

on departure day,you will have received you invoice,but if you stay on the ship until your going to the airport,you cannot order any drinks as your account is closed and take to money from you card,hence no more drinks on the day of departure,you can get meals and water/coffee but no alcohol drinks.
