Just returned from our first cruise on the Island Escapes and was pleasantly surprised. The boarding process was efficient and quick, our luggage arrived at our cabin within 1 hour of boarding. We had an outside cabin on deck 7 which was small but spotlessly clean with lots of hangers & storage, totally adequate. All the staff were very friendly, hard working and helpful. Restaurants were spotlessly clean,with an excellent selection of food to choose from. We used both the all inclusive restaurants but didn't use the Al a Carte restaurants as we were totally satisfied with the others. The all inclusive package was very good except that we thought that bottles of water and coffee outside of the dining rooms should have been included. The entertainment team were very talented and hard working and produced some fantastic shows. I have to mention in particular Ross the cruise director he was brilliant, funny and very talented.We haven't laughed so much for a long time. There were also outside acts brought on board in particular Andre ( comedian/Magician) who was also very good. It is hard sum up what a fantastic holiday we had in a few sentences but we would definitely do this again. We also met some lovely people on board, some of who we will keep in touch with. Lastly I would like to say a big thank you to all on Island Escapes for making our holiday so memorable.
