Island Escape is not finishing - it is continuing with Thomson. I had a look at their website and did a dummy booking for 1 Sept and they still seem to be offering it, so can't understand them cancelling you. Have a look at the website and see if what is coming up is the same or different to what you booked.

That's good! Bet you are relieved! Not very efficient of them to send such a letter though!

I did the Transatlantic cruise to Brasil returning 2wks ago on the Escape and was offered further cruises for next year on board. I did a review on this site stating how much I enjoyed it, I'm sure you will too. Previously people had trouble with the change over of company's, it seems most of us didn't know Thomson was taking over.

Brief Moments In Bruges

By Michaela Kilburn

Michaela Kilburn's blog

 Day two of my trip on Ventura and once our conference had come to an end, we had the option to visit Bruges, a place I had never been to before and was very much looking forward to visit.We boarded our coach ready for the journey to Bruges. This took around 20 minutes or so then we were off to explore.I loved the feel of the place.It is such a pretty city to be in with cobbled stoned streets and medieval buildings. A popular way to getting around is by Horse and cart. I had to move e...

Are PO getting fussy?

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

P&O cruises have recently announced that they are banning fancy dress on all of their cruises! Even mini cruises which historically are booked by new to cruise passengers and parties who are celebrating.I can understand that if you are new to cruising and you book a taster cruise to see if you like it and there is a group of rowdy Hens, Stags or a group celebrating a birthday for example II can see how this is off putting.Cruising is meant to be fun, enjoyment and create memories. These ...
