On the 25th May I was 65, on the 24th May I thought I was not going to see it. We were sitting in the restaurant on deck 10 when the ship rocked slightly and then suddenly veered over, to see the sea rushing up towards us on one side and objects and people falling towards us was very frightening, my wife and my young sister were thrown against the windows both suffering slight bruising. The restaurant crew looked to be in shock with one officer saying he could not believe it, every thing that was not bolted down flew down. We watched as people were removed in wheel chairs and assisted out of the restaurant. Afterwards no explanation was given to us as to what happened, other then putting it down to weather conditions, at no.time did anyone appear to do a roll call to make sure everyone was still on board, hopefully no one was outside having a smoke. Also my brother in law was ill with what we thought sea sickness because no one mentioned anything about novo virus being on board so we are now wondering what he had. We will be complaining to Thomsons, I suggest that everyone on this trip do the same and try to get some answers, (1) why did the captain decide to leave the port if weather conditions were so bad (2) why did no one do a roll call afterwards (3) why did no one bother to explain to people as to what happened, as for the Island escape we will not be sailing on her again, can understand why Thomson did not put there name on this "ship" We have sailed with Thomson before on the Destiny and really enjoyed it, thus the reason for going with Thomson again.
