Rules are conspicuously absent on this floating island. The friendly atmosphere on the Island Escape provides the perfect backdrop for you to shape your own holiday.

The island escape prides herself on attentive, informal service.
While relaxation just comes naturally aboard the Island Escape recreation can be just as rewarding. With the state of the art Island gym and beauty salon you can choose from training to treatments depending on your mood. If retail therapy is more your style the ships duty free shops are open as we sail. There is also a cyber cafe on board where you can design your own postcard and make all those at home green with envy.

Meals & Drinks...FB . The Island Restaurant serves a mouth-watering variety of food that looks as good as it tastes. You can start the day with a full buffet breakfast and then later on spoil yourself with dishes including stir-frys, seafood platters, hot main meals, salads and delicious desserts. If you want a little al fresco food, the second restaurant, the Beachcomber, is a fantastically popular venue, with indoor and outdoor tables. On those occasions when you want to dress up, our third restaurant is the Oasis, a warm atmosphere where you can dine a la carte and enjoy a fantastic selection of wines at very reasonable prices. 3 Bars .
