Island Cruises

Sep 3, 2008
Island cruises is the trading name for a cruise line which is operated by Sunshine Cruises. They operate two ships the Island Star and Island Escape both of which carry in excess of 1,500 passengers in style and comfort predominately around the Mediterranean Sea.

A Mediterranean 14 night cruise departs from Palma, Majorca in the early evening and begins sailing the Mediterranean Sea giving passengers time to explore the ship and discover the onboard amenities before having to decide which of the many cafes, bars and restaurants to dine in.

The following day and night are spent at sea where passengers can soak up the Mediterranean sun by a pool or the more energetic can use the gym facilities. The ship also has activities designed with children in mind to keep them occupied and happy. Eating and drinking is offered in a wide variety of different style settings offering a wide choice of culinary delights.

The ship arrives on day three in Palermo, Sicily at breakfast time and remains docked for the majority of the day to enable passengers to go ashore and discover the delights of this bustling, thriving city. The ship leaves Sicily late afternoon and continues cruising the Mediterranean Sea arriving in Civitavecchia, Italy in the morning. This port is ideally situated for discovering the local area or take an optional excursion to places a little further away, before returning to the ship ready to leave port in the early evening and sail through the night.

Day five begins with the ship continuing to sail before arriving in Ajaccio, Corsica in time for lunch. The afternoon can be spent ashore discovering both the classical Mediterranean scenery or relaxing on one of the beautiful beaches. The ship leaves Corsica in the evening, sails through the night and docks in the beautiful island of Sardinia. The traditional Sardinian foods can be sampled at lunchtime in one of the numerous seafront restaurants, many of which specialise in local fish dishes.

The ship continues cruising the Mediterranean Sea before hopping between the Balearic islands of Menorca and Majorca. The scheduled itinerary continues with day nine at sea relaxing and soaking up the sun, arriving in Messina, Sicily on day ten where a whole host of discovery and sightseeing adventures await. Late afternoon the ship leaves this delightful island to make its way to Naples, Italy for the start of week two of the cruise, the ship remains docked in Naples for the whole day which gives passengers plenty of time to go ashore and discover this vibrant and exciting city before returning onboard to carry on cruising to Livorno, Italy to sample the delights of Tuscany.

Day thirteen sees the ship arrive in the historic port of Toulon on the French coast, where another day can be spent ashore enjoying the beautiful coastline. The last day of the cruise is spent in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, Spain before arriving back in Palma, Majorca early the following morning for disembarkation.

The itinerary for this cruise does not include flights to and from Majorca, although the tour operator will gladly arrange these.
