Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2010

Sailed on the ISLAND ESCAPE last week it was poss the worst holiday i have ever had,if you are booked on this ship in the coming weeks while you are eating your corn flakes or egg and bacon on deck 10 have a good look at the chairs you are sitting on,and wonder how long the in ground dirt has been on them,have a look around the bottom of the large windows and ask yourself the same question,have a look at the ceiling panels all a long the corridors, the buckets catching water from leaking pipes, the large fans paced along corridors trying to remove the stale smells, I my self became ill on the day 3 which kept me in my cabin for 2 days and 2 nights,my wife then came down with it for 2 days, my brother and his wife where next,we then found out that a lot more passengers where ill, on the SAT every one had to leave the ship so that it could be fumigated,they even laid on free coaches to make sure every one went a shore. I am not some one who would normally write a holiday review but for any one booked on this ship you need to no what you are going to get,as some who works in the cruises industry, if this ship sailed from a uk port it would be stopped by the PORT HEALTH
