The Island Escape is a social ship and, while at sea, it is likely that passengers will spend a lot of their time in some of the ship's public rooms. These range from pubs, bars and theatres to libraries, shops and casinos.
The ship's library can be found at the back of Cafe Brazil. It's little more than a pair of cabinets with a selection of books inside, though sitting with a coffee and a book watching the ship's wake spread out from the tall windows can be an especially relaxing experience.
The cafe also has Wi-Fi access and is a far more pleasant place to log on than the small, airless computer room on Deck 10. Passengers can link their own laptops or other mobile devices with the ship's Internet. Passengers have to pay for Wi-Fi and various Internet packages are available.
The Sundowner Bar on Deck 7 has a distinct nautical theme and is reminiscent of a seaside British pub. Most onboard drinks are included in the ship's all-inclusive deal.
The shops are located on Deck 8 and, while not particularly big, are well stocked with a variety of products, including clothes, souvenirs, food and drink, and practical items, such as European plug socket adapters.
