  • leonard, Sittingbourne - Commented on this review

    Went on the island escape in early september 11 round the med, food, entertainment, service all very good, we also had an outside cabin which was very small the bed had slats and a very thin mattress which was so very uncomfortable! luckely the cabin was a 4 birth with two extra mattresses on the top bunks so we also added them to our existig mattress to double them up! OOoooh so much better, shower cubicle was disgusting with tiles falling of wall black mould and yucky thick patch up jobs, curtains were used as a wardrobe. cabin was only part that really spoilt our holiday, it really was disgusting, cabin very out dated and shoddy certainely in need of a make over. Will not sail with escape again unless updated .

He has gone with ‘ Voyages’ as he thinks the word cruise is awful and can’t understand why companies use it in their title.Founder and President of Virgin Group Sir Richard B...
