How is the entertainment? - we are not really into cabaret/west end style shows much prefer acoustic nights/cover bands etc .
Hiya! I haven't been on the Island Star but have been on the Island Escape. I was really worried I was only 16 at the time & was worried I'd be surrounded by old people. However I found that there was a variety of ages, I didn't feel out of place at all. I'm now 19 & am going on my second cruise (Thomson Destiny) in about 4 weeks with my boyfriend (23), fingers crossed we won't be the only people of our age group!
Hi mcguire again they have jonglers comedy you will be on ship i take it on sat 20th of sep if doing med essence if you fly from glasgow on early morning flight thomas cook one at 7oclock you will be on ship for lunch time they have disco as well and pub do your own thing you will have fun hope to read your review to see how you enjoyed your cruise.
Regarding the age question:- We found people of all ages on board so I'm sure you won't feel out of place. We were on board during the Easter Holidays but I'm assuming that the overall demographic doesn't change to much.
We also got a last minute deal and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Personally, I think that Island are by some distance at the moment, the best company for casual cruising, and they give some of the more traditional cruising companies a run for their money.
I think that you've got exactly the right attitude.
Regarding the entertainment, when we were on board they had a fantastic Brazilian duo whose name unfortunately escapes me. The girl sang and played acoustic guitar. The guy also sang and played a variety of percussion. They mostly played in the pub bar and their take on some songs was quite different and enjoyable. They used to rota with a pianist and a guitarist/singer who had backing tracks. Each act did two sets per night of around 45 minutes each. There was also a five piece group. They did a lot of stuff on deck and in the Bounty Lounge. The covers were from the 60's right through to the present. There was no resident backing band as such. For the shows (which were very good by the way), they used backing tracks.
We found the entertainment team to be excellent. The Assistant Cruise Director was absolutely brilliant.... Mad but brilliant. We won't forget him in a hurry!
Have a great holiday!
