Guest's review of Island Cruises, Island Escape

★★★★☆

“all in all a very good value for money cruise the food...”

Written on: 04/01/2010

all in all a very good value for money cruise the food was varied and plentiful. the entertainment was first class plenty to do round the ship during the day. and evening shows were very proffessional.there was an issue with some of the toilets wich were rectified as soon as they could be. but most of the problems wre caused by the passangers themselves by putting unsuitable items down the pan when it expressly states not to do so .the issue of missed ports was due to weather factors at this time of year it was beyond the captains control ,yes he was captain not god.he did a first class job keeping the ship as steady as possible in the prevailing conditions.the ship most of the time had a gentle roll with the ocaisinal shudder quite normal in the conditions . i did get fed up hearing people continually moaning about the weather and the ship moving i suggest if they dont like it then they dont cruise its their choice .overall we had an exellent holiday met some lovely people who incidentally had their toilet blocked but got on with it and had a good time .the only thing that could have spoilt it for someone was the proffessional moaners it certainly was not going to spoil ours by these sad small minded people who moaned for the sake of it .i have told it as it was those who didnt like it stay on land next time and let us people who really enjoy cruising whatever the weather get on with it.

We wholly agree with your comments, there were a minority of complainers who were out to scare monger. We as a family of 6 (3 generations) had a wonderful holiday. The toilets were mainly caused by people stuffing large objects down them and blocking them (we heard it was on purpose to seek compensation). The weather could not be helped and the Captain did everything possible to make our holiday enjoyable. The very sad few people that complained and made people's lives hell should go to a 5 star hotel on an Island by themselves!!!

Getting thrown about my cabin causing bruising. Contracting the noro virus was not what I signed up for. I'm not sure you were on the same ship. My friend is still traumatised.

Be very careful about going on the Island Escape. The entertainment is good the food if you limit warm not hot I fine. Make sure you know the ship has been totally fumigated to wipe out the Noro Virus as many of the passengers contracted it when I was on it.
