Just wondered if anyone had been on the Island Star and what they thought of it. Have read some less than favourable comments on other sites. We are doing the Mediterranean Spirit itinary in June. Also I have read that there is a problem with hair straighteners not working can anyone give me any info on this as this would be catastrophic for me on holiday!!!

I have read numerous reviews and the main complaints about Island Star seem to be that the cabins at the back of the ship are very noisy. For this reason I have now contacted them and pre-booked a cabin nearer the front. Some people have also commented about some of the clientele being not your ususal cruising types. I am a working class person myself but I hate rudeness and bad manners and it sounds like some people have experienced this being displayed towards members of staff on Island ships. I have to say I have travelled to many parts of the world and I am ashamed to say I have found the British to be the worst tourists. I have also read many complaints that the hot food at the buffet is at best lukewarm. I booked this cruise before I discovered these forums and I have to say I probably wouldn't have booked it if I had read them first, but I will reserve judgement until after I have experienced it myself and will be posting reviews about it. I am hoping I will be pleasantly surprised.
