According to Island Cruises web site Island Star reverts to Royal Caribbean with effect from 26th March 2009 so anyone booked on their transatlantic journey to Europe and Med cruises for 2009 should look at the Island web site. Basically, your cruise has been cancelled. Caribbean cruises from now up to that date will continue as normal.

Oh dear! My in-laws are on the island star at the moment and always cruise with Island. They'll be devastated. They've made lots of friends on the ship and sometimes meet up with those they've become acquainted with. They've sailed with Ocean Village, but it wasn't for them. I wonder if they'll ever cruise again.

Dont be daft - try thompsons instead as it is a similar type of cruise. OV was prob too young for them.

Dont miss your ship.

By Dawn Gardener

For some reason, there seems to be more and more stories of cruise guests missing their ship when in port. I am on several cruise pages via Facebook and have heard this a lot recently where guests comment on how the ship departed leaving guests on shore because they didn’t get back in time. Last year there was the famous you tube video going around of the couple that left their kids on the ship whilst they went on shore and then missed it as it departed from Nassua with her screami...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
