I think the island are informal cruises? You can dress up if you like. The drinks were priced at around a decent public house price i.e. £2.30 a pint, £9.00+ bottle of wine, £2.00 per galss, cocktails are usually good value. I must admit they didn't try and rip off passengers. We went on the Island star, so should be around the same as they are the same company. Don't the Esacape offer an all inclusive package, I would check with your agents. You didn't say where your port of call are, they should be in your brochure. Pst the names and i'm sure you'll get lots of replies as folk love to share their experiences of getting around, especially if they make their own way. Or mail me on
