Good Ports; Terrible Ship

Island Escape Cruise Review by Morizot

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview

Cramped ship

Lots of horrible people getting drunk, the public areas smelt of sick.

The food was tasteless in the main restaurant

The paying restaurant was good however and the ports were wonderful

This is the first bad cruise we have been on

The buffet style meals meant we had fewer chances to talk to fellow passengers as people were constantly on the move. I prefer a set menu with a chance to chat before courses with other passengers

We have been on other cruises, this was the worse. I would be OK with this had the cruise been cheap, but for the same price we had two weeks on p&o last year with spending money which covered our drinks. P&o was better value and the people were pleasant. Likewise cruise and maritime and Thompson dream were also good

Island escape was butlins on sea

Didn't do any excursions as we planned our own trips

Entertainment was mixed but spoiled by the awful passengers
