Island Cruises was owned 50% each between TUI (ie Thomsons) and Royal Caribbean and when setting it up they each put a ship into the company. TUI bought the other 50% off RCCL in September but Star was the ship put in by RCCL so they are taking it back (wef end of March) and placing it with Pulmantur of Spain which they also own.

Queen Mary 2 or Queen Victoria?I have worked on both and have been lucky enough, in my role on both these ships, to have the freedom to use the public areas.
