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, 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!

Is Cruising Getting Too Hi-Tec?

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...

This is AZAmazing!

By Blair Campbell

Blair Campbell's blog

Cruise lines are often difficult to differentiate between each other and often you become spoilt for choice. Let me tell you why I have this soft spot for Azamara Club Cruises. I feel that as a company they tick all the correct boxes for me as a bit of a culture vulture. They have an amazing spread of itineraries despite only having TWO ships (That are identical sisters) The Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey. I will talk you through 4 Reason why this cruise brand stands at the top of my to-do...
