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.

Fancy a Movie Night in or Away?

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

There is nothing my family love more than cuddling up of a Sunday night , curtains closed, eating microwave popcorn and watching a movie. Its become a Sunday night tradition in our house. Although there is something my two boys love slightly more – movies under the stars on a cruise. We often end up missing the shows and evening entertainment, because for them this is the perfect treat. Sun loungers, blankets, hot chocolate and even pop corn and pizza bought to you whilst watching a fil...
