Recent Ventura experience
Stuart Cameron | June 28, 2022 | P&O Cruises | Ventura
I have just returned from a week’s cruise on Ventura which is my first with P&O since 2018 and I was a little disappointed. I won’t vent my personal views but cruisers should be aware of the following:
1. There is no card room on Ventura. It has been converted to a children’s play machine area for which there is a charge for each type of machine. Therefore there is no quiet room in the evening for cards or board games. The small library is not suitable.
