Island Escape Cruise Review by Richard Simpson
- Sail Date: October 2015
- Destination: Eastern Mediterranean
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 get seasick pills, for the first time I have to say, normally ok in rough weather.
After our first stop the weather calmed and the rest of the cruise was just as good as the first one.
All the crew were fantastic and very helpful, from the top to the bottom.
Cabins was perfect for our needs, and kept nice and clean thanks to Desmond our cabin cleaner.
The food was brilliant, in all the resturants, and the staff were fantastic, very attentive and kept our tables clean and tidy, and replenished our drinks whenever necessary.
On the ship were plenty of bars and room to move around freely, loads of seats and sunloungers and on decks that were kept clean and tidy always.
On leaving the ship at the end of the cruise it was tinged with dismay to think that in a weeks time it will be moving to pastures new, to be decommissioned as a cruise liner, which is a pity as we had a wonderful two cruises aboard her.

NaplesWe decided not to take a tour but instead just visit Naples itself. Well what a mistake that was, we walked into the city to see if the brochuers were accurate. Well have to say you take your life in your hands out there, while trying to cross the road, and at a proper crossing, with the green man showing so you can cross, the first car stops you start to cross, another car ignores the lights and just misses you, the car that stopped sees this and he takes off now leaving in the middle of the road with these maniacs aiming for you, God it was scarey, after that happening twice we just went back to the ship and relaxed thereView All 1,426 Naples Cruise Port Reviews

We took an open topped bus tour and were able to get round and see all the significant attractions, and apparently Saturdays is a quiet day, so not to franetic, great day
