Very good but perhaps could have been even better!
Terry Skeet | September 21, 2017 | P&O Cruises | Ventura
Just returned from a Ventura fly cruise to Genoa and back that proved to be very enjoyable, cloudless blue skies and table top seas. Here is our review of the ship and the cruise.
Ventura – The ship looked clean and in good condition except the carpet in our cabin, it was so bad my wife NEVER walked on it without slippers or a pair of my socks on.
Food – No problems at all, up to the usual P&O standard. If I have a gripe it is that the portions were smaller.
Service – The main problem with Freedom Dining is that you do not get a connection with the waiters and so it proved again. The service in the bars etc was fine.
Entertainment – On this particular cruise I must say it was really, REALLY good, way above the average I would say.
Sea days – The big, BIG problem on Ventura and Azura is availability of sunbeds and people putting towels on them and not using them is just terrible! Why P&O have not addressed this issue I just don’t understand, it does put passengers off the big ships. I hope they have learned a lesson from those 2 ships and taken steps to improve top deck availability on Britannia. We can but ‘cross our fingers’ but don’t build up your hopes.
