Island Escape

OVERVIEW: This is ‘all-inclusive’ cruising in comfortable, unpretentious surroundings that are dated but comfortable, with a totally relaxed ambience that appeals to anyone looking for a casual first cruise with plenty of life and entertainment, food that is quantity rather than quality, and a modes

ASBO kids

Reviewed By: on
4th tme on this ship and sadly spoilt by asbo kids. Children just allowed to roam free and ruined the total holiday with ASBO antics all day long. Sadly our last cruise on the island escape. Food as always good quality and remains the holiday highlight for u. Went all inclusive again and the quality of the offer let down a little this trip, certain previous drinks now removed from the A/L parts and had to pay the difference for branded drinks. Only =y the one pool and unsafe to have a dip owing to the CONSTANT diving in of young children which ruined just about every day around the pool. The ship remains popular and i now wonder if it is starting to attract certain type of clientèle. The ports of call were excellent this time, we did the soukes and sangrai and called at GIb, Malaga, Valencia and Morocco. The excursions like on many cruises remain over priced and we only opted for one excursion and did our own thing after a little groundwork before hand. Did he rock ourselves, a trip to the LLadro factory ourselves which the ship cahrged £33 pounds for, we went on the bus and did the town on our own for 6 euros each!!. Morrococ is a simple walk up to the town and easy enough. the only trip we "indulged" in was a cycle trip around Cattagena which was well led and informative. The onboard entertainment was average and adequate as was the asbo entertainment and the adult only venues kept the monsters at bay after 22.00 hors. they did not like being offloaded from the adult bars after this hour. TOUGH LUCK. I relaxing break but sadly the ship and its new attracted ASO kids now letting the tug down somewhat. booked on the MSC davina later on in the year, looks a step u from Island Butlins now!!

Low price for an all-inclusive holiday with entertainment in a safe environment for children in school holidays. What did you expect?! And it's no different on other lines.

What were you expecting: that the children be kept locked in cages? Or that the children be kept locked below deck - with the cargo or like the 3rd class passengers on the Titanic???? Contracting the norovirus sounds like a more enjoyable holiday then spending a week with folks like you.

you will regret booking an MSC cruise if you think Island Escape was bad.

If you have a problem with kids why haven't you booked on an adult only ship? I would have thought MSC would be the last line you would consider - as kids travel free I would guess there will be quite a number on board.

Hey! Don't knock these ABSO kids. For some of them its the only qualification they will ever achieve.

You are pathetic with your constant use of the letters ASBO.
