Hi Stevenson, I am also on the classic Caribbean on 4th December flying from Manchester. No Captain's cocktail party as far as I know from other reviews, talking to people who have been on Island Star and e-mails to the company. There may be a "ladies night" but that is also fairly casual going by a previous experience on Island Escape. I much prefer this situation - its either a formal cruise with casual nights or a casual cruise with formal nights. On this cruise it is casual - not so casual that one can stroll from the sun decks to the restaurants I hope.

Here we saw Peppa pig at Peppa pig’s world where all the themed attra...

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
