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.

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to www.CRUISE.co.uk, I saw the company change dramatically over the years. From the airline purchasing brand new Dreamliner planes from Boeing, to the introduction of exclusive properties to cater for every type of holiday maker.Whilst working there I saw a few minor changes to the cruise side of the business, but nothing dramatic. The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

Jo Cunningham's blog

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
