Hi, we stayed in cabin 5198 8 Aug, on Island Star, we had a great time, but yes there was a constant vibration, i am a light sleeper and didnt get any sleep that week. I guess if you can get a cabin towards the front, it would be better. I would go again on this ship, as long as the cabin was nearer the front, and not below the theatre! I think the price is reasonable and it is a case you get what you pay for, we have travelled Queen Mary which was fab, but we liked the island star very much, despite being a bit tired in places, it was just a reasonable holiday, if you travel with an open mind it is fine.

Re comment by Summers, Plymouth. If this person did not like the Island Star could they have the sense to say why not as this is a pointless comment otherwise.

I note that Summers of Plymouth quite rightly have their own opion,and that is respected. My wife and I have been on all the P O Cruises,Ocean Village,Princess Cruises and full range of Thomson ships. We tried Island star for a complete contrast 2 years ago. Went around the Med twice,and have booked to go on their Latin Carabean Cruise on the 26 Feb next year,very relaxing,good entertainment,its your choice and not so much show off as the top of the range with all the bragging from the ones that started cruising when it was only for the rich!!. Go positive and you will really enjoy Mr Mrs Taylor (pensioners) South Wales.

Hi Jan, we cruised on the Island Escape, one floor away from the restaurant, and heard nothing at all, we are also cruising on the Island Star in March 2009, transatlantic from Barbados to Majorca, we are booked in on deck 6, so if your cruise is later in the year, I will post a review here for you to view. Carrol.

Have just returned from a week on Island Star, on deck 6 - and that is actually my second time on that deck. No poblems with noise in my cabin. I was in cabin 6053 (around mid-ship). Never heard a thing! Don't know if you have been on Island Star before but, if not, I'm sure that you will have a lovely time. That was my third time.....and I just love it!! Happy holidays! Linda .

Has long as you are in the middle of the ship,there shouldnt be a problem with noise,the worst cabins for noise are those above the propellors on most decks of the Star.
