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 .

Is River Cruising Accessible?

By Hannah Wilson

Quite simply, River Cruising is my passion, my favourite type of cruise. i have been lucky enough to do five river cruises to date and the next one can’t come soon enough.

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...

Ships Collide !

By Richard Smith

Richard Smith's blog

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...
