Just returned from a 1 week cruise on the Island Escape . I was on this cruise ship in 2002 and really enjoyed it, this time however it was not so good. The main problem was the food every meal was served luke warm and not very tasty. The staff were really friendly, couldn't do enough for you, the entertainment however was like something you would find in an old peoples home they didn't think about the younger people on board. There is talk of the ship going in for a refit in the Autumn and boy does it need it. The first night on board i think we where asked 5-6 times in about 5mins if we wanted a drink this was all the time, i do understand that the staff have a job to do but we had already got a drink in front of us. The ship was clean the staff where always cleaning and there was hand gels everywhere and you had to us them every time you went in the resturants. Would i do this cruise again probably not you really do get what you pay for and i think i would rather pay that little extra.
