Hi Mr or Mrs Pearce, if you go onto the review area of this site and select Island Cruises there are 2 articles about this already. One by Vardy on 12th October and another by Sparrow on 10th October. Hope this helps.

You can now book Island Escape cruises on for next summer, I checked today so all must have gone thro ok. Have been on a Thomson cruise for the past 4 years and have already booked for next year also, can't fault them on anything.

Hi, Just for info ive sailed on thompfon three times and recently on the island escape. May i assure u that if the thompson pay the same amount of effort to the escape as they do on thr spirit or celebration then a good holiday is assured. If you have not booked yet i would recommend the spirit or celebration over the escape. The reasons being that the Island escape is a converted car ferry and even though is fit for cruises its a mass of stairways and only a couple of lifts. The decks which for the main bulk of the entertainment and eating are split on various levels whereas on the spriti or celebration they are two decks together. The showbar is limited on viewing as it is a ferry deck so all the seating is at one level so sit at the front or you will be seeing the back of heads. Food is ok . Bars are also ok though as island escape it was a bit somkey. Thompson is stricter re the smoking policy. I did have a good time on the escape and wont take that away from it. But my preference would be the spirit and celebration., Old ships but nice promenade deck to walk around at night. Any more info im pleased to answer, Paul .
