Just got back from a 2 week cruise and stay, went on Island Escape as I enjoyed it so much last year and it is excellent value. I like others am sorry she is going out of service, but it appears the crew have a good chance of staying together on her replacement. I remember Ross Roberts from last year and thought he was good, but this time me and wife had chance to appreciate what a good all round entertainer he is, I also think he is hillariously funny and being camp suits this. I have no moans at all, although I am sad to see again others do nothing but knock the ship, wingeing over the stupidest of things, my advice to those who have done P&O, Cunard, Holland America etc, stay with them if you dont want to go on an informal cruise, (is quite simple). I met many who have done these lines but prefer to be informal, so that works both ways, similar to my review last year I say "champagne tastes lemonade pockets" for some, and as for comments about the ship smelling is ridiculous anyone who is honest will tell you the staff are forever ensuring the communial areas are clean, so well done Island Cruises and I hope the new replacement for 2016 continues to provided good crusing at economy prices

Excellent Value
