Thomson Island Escape
As a laid back cruise ship that sails the Mediterranean, the Thomson Island Escape offers dream Thomson Cruises for those who want to go ‘just far enough’.
Just far enough to experience guaranteed sunshine and explore some exciting destinations in France, Spain, Greece, Italy, Morocco and Croatia, as well as enjoying an informal cruise ship experience.
Choose to Fly and Cruise and you can start your Mediterranean adventure within hours from a port abroad, cutting out any unnecessary days at sea.
Short haul destinations and a relaxed approach to cruising make the Island Escape a fantastically family friendly cruise liner. It’s also ideal for couples and groups of friends who want to pack in maximum travel destinations, but aren’t sold on the formality of a traditional cruise.
Facilities and Amenities
The possibilities are endless! Relax on the sun deck, take a dip in the pool and enjoy a sauna. Or perhaps you fancy a gym work out or a pampering session in the hair and beauty salon? Whether you feel like being active or simply relaxing in style, there’s plenty to keep you busy onboard the Island Escape.
Gift shops, an internet cafe with mini library, a casino and a video arcade complete the line up of leisure facilities onboard – nothing has been overlooked on the Island Escape.
The Thomson Island Escape sticks to what it knows best, and it knows the Med very well! From the ‘Souks and Sangria’ itinerary taking in Palma, Gibraltar, Tangier (Morocco), Malaga and Ibiza Town, to the ‘Escape to the Med’ itineraries with a distinctly Italian slant, there’s a Thomson Island Escape cruise for every holidaymaker.
And the choice doesn’t stop there. From Tunis, Dubrovnik and Barcelona, to Rome, Nice and Naples, there’s a long list of Mediterranean destinations from. All of which have been expertly combined to make exciting 7 and 11 night cruises for those who like a good balance of time spent at sea, and time spent exploring a selection of dream holiday destinations.
If relaxed Mediterranean cruising is on your summer holiday agenda, look no further than the laid back Thomson Island Escape.

A Thomson Island Escape cruise is for everyone – simply choose your accommodation type to suit your individual budget and requirements.
There are two buffet restaurants onboard, The Island and The Beachcomber, both offering relaxed dining 24 hours a day. Simply turn up when you feel hungry and enjoy a wide selection of international and British buffets in a spacious restaurant with a casual vibe.
