Accommodation options range from bunk-bedded cabins (one upper, one lower) and standard inside and outside twins to outside Premier cabins (larger than standard, with an extra sofa bed, table and chair), outside Deluxe cabins (slightly larger than Premiers with the same amenities), outside balcony cabins (with a fridge and computer socket), Club or, at the top of the range, Island Suites, that have a separate lounge and bar area. Standard cabins measure 107 to 129 square feet, Premier cabins are 161 to 182 square feet, Deluxe cabins are 182 to 204 square feet and all suites measure 322 square feet.

All cabins have a television, a radio, air conditioning, a safe and a telephone.

The plugs are European, so passengers need to bring U.K. adaptors.

All suites have a separate seating area with bar and fridge, Island suites also come equipped with marble whirlpool baths, dining areas and entertainment centre. There is no Wi-Fi in the cabins.

In another life, the Island Escape was a passenger ferry, and the cabins still retain this feel.

Outside balcony cabins, while neatly furnished, are still fairly small, with a modest wardrobe and a tiny bathroom. The walls are thin and there is little sound insulation. This is a particular problem in cabins at the rear of the ship as proximity to the onboard entertainment areas can make them noisy at night. Passengers looking to get to bed before 11 p.m. might be put off by this.

Some of the suite cabins at the back of the ship can also be prone to vibrations from the propellers -- especially when the ship is at full power.

Boarded the ship in Palma on the 13th October, for what was its penultimate cruise. The ship left port at 23.00 and it was apparent it was a bit rough, leading to the first day at sea, being a nightmare, Both myself and partner had to ... Read more
