We have just had a holiday on escape and did not experience any noise at all. Just sorry we will not be able to use this ship after next year. Its a blow. You will enjoy, although she is a little tired had a fantastic time. If you have Guy Lockwood as Captain he is brill. Do the navigate with the Captain was highlight to holiday. £15 including photo.

You might well be right but, I tried to search for a holiday on her for Nov next year and think I am right in saying she is going to go to the Thompson line. Anyway I could not book with her. Would be interested on your thoughts.

Travelsphere (part of the Page and Moy Group) are advertizing a Majorca to Brazil cruise with Island Cruises aboard the Escape from Tues 17 Nov 09 to Mon 7 Dec 09 (20 nights) from £999. On the phone this evening they gave no indication this would not be taking place. (Holiday Ref OIBMB - Travelsphere Extra Brochure October 2008 edition). Now I'm confused !!

Es we had a good time and Captain Guy was fantastic. Island Escape is an ugly duckling from the outside but it is a friendly ship on the inside .

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...
