We have just returned from Ventura’s Christmas and New Year cruise to The Canaries and Madiera together with Lisbon.
It was wow from the minute we stepped on board. With the ice rink in the Atrium. The decorations were very good. The staff right from the Captain to the cabin staff were excellent. The food overall was greatly improved to what was served on other ships.
The entertainment was good as usual.
The only down aspect was the debarkle of disembarkation. Right from arriving in The Arena theatre to arriving at our coach. One and a quarter hours!! It was the worst ever.
Eavesway coach company were again very good.
The fireworks in Madiera were amazing.
Yes, The Bay of Biscay was rough but Ventura coped well.
