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 .

They received an early booking discount from Royal Caribbean (plus free parking from ourselves) and were outraged when RCI decided to announce they were now including a deluxe drinks package PLUS the second passenger goes half price. When we added the cost of the drinks package on to the price they paid for their original cruise th...

Toddlers and pools on board

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Choosing the right ship for any age is important, but even more so when picking one that is suitable for children, toddlers and babies. Older children may want the kids clubs, some are just happy with the pool, or some might want more adventurous activities like rock climbing, ice skating etc. But what about toddlers/infants?Some parents with children under 3 might not want to leave their children in the kids club all day, and actually just be happy with a pool that the child can use –...
