Island Escape

Island Escape, of Island Cruises, is the most laidback ship in the Thomson fleet, taking a more informal approach to life at sea.

Island EscapeOn the activities front, you can enjoy everything from pampering spa treatments and sports, to salsa classes and fruit carving demonstrations. And at night, it’s all about side-splitting stand-up comedy, live bands and cabaret.

As for restaurants, there are three to choose from, two of which offer bumper buffet spreads. Add an internet café, kids’ club and several bars into the mix, and it’s hardly surprising guests come back for more.
