Ship Facts: Island Escape Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Island Escape Deck Plans
First Time Cruise (with Children) - Very Enjoyable
I have wanted to do a cruise for a few years and booked this 4 weeks before sailing due to a cheap price of £599 per person. We were 2 adults and 2 children aged 3 and 14.

I was a little worried about embarking and the procedure but it all was very smooth. Landed in Palma (Majorca), quickly on to a coach, registered on arrival and given cabin and swipe cards, on board and settled with luggage within 1 hour (very nice indeed).

Yes the cabins are a little dated but fully functional, tv, shower, storage space etc.

The first night we had the deck party which was excellent, our 3 year old was dancing for 2 hours with the show team girls (thanks to Macey and Jade) and that set the tempo for the entire stay. The staff were great from the cabin steward (Morrison), the restaurant, the waiters and showteam. They all remembered our 3 year old name where ever she was on the ship.

Other Port Info:  Pisa - Did the coach excursion through Island Escape (5 hours). Very enjoyable

All in all a great stay and loved every minute.
