The island star is a great cruise ship not matter what reviews you read. I had the pleasure through my travel company to board the ship at Lisbon and sail back to palma with her , This ship is the old Horizon ship which Celebrity cruises owned, The whole ship has been totally refurbished and is fantastic... Did you know that in Dec 08 Island star is going to the Caribbean for a 14nt cruise prices start from £1039pp , the itinerary if superb.The only downfall ( if you could call it that) is that if you have not cruised before and your first one is a transatlantic , you will have as many as 6 days at sea , some people will not like that and get the feeling of being "trapped". If you have cruised you will love it .. my advise is GO FOR IT !!

I've not done that particular cruise but I have done a similar one with another cruise line. Of all the cruises I have done it was by far the best. i was a bit worried about the 5 days at sea that i would get bored and the ship would feel claustrophobic with everyone onboard all day but I was wrong. it did help that I had a cabin with a balcony and we got fantastc weather for the crossing. Sometimes with shorter cruises where you are at a different port everyday can be a bit tiring especially if you are getting up early to go ashore and are on second sitting at dinner, then go to the show afterwards. With the 5 or 6 days at sea you get a mix of all the hectic busy days and then a quiet period in the middle just to relax followed by more hectic days and nights again. I'd vertainly do another transatlantic crossing again. I'm sure you will have a fantastic tim.
