ABOVE: The Island Escape carries 1,536 passengers in 768 cabins. The ship was built in 1982 as the cruise ferry Scandinavia and received a major overhaul several years ago.

Thomson Cruises belongs to a British travel packager that operates an in-house cruise line with chartered vessels. It acquired Island Cruises in 2009, and that company's Island Escape is now part of the Thomson Fleet.

Thomson is operating six ships in 2016, with itineraries in the the Western Mediterranean, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, and the Atlantic during the European cruise season. Some of Thomson's cruises depart from ports in the UK.
