Hi, my brother renewed his wedding vows in September on the Island Escape and here is his reply: The answer is in the Island Cruise punch line - Relaxed and informal. With Island Cruises there is very little formality, you are free to dress up as much or as little as you like. Wear what you are comfortable in, smart dress of course. We have just renewed our vows in September and we wore smart/casual. We were treated like royalty, and the staff could not have done more to make the occasion memorable. Hope that helps...Stev.

Thank you for your replies to our question except for Mrs t from bristol.... 1. I did not ask for the state of the ship as I have read many reviews.2 I am sure you were a first time cruiser sometime and the last thing you want is a negative reply to a question albeit the first one. 3. The question was I wanted some advice on what to wear/ Take? Not if someone had been murdered!!! Now, we are cruise virgins could you please give us some positive feed back please.

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
