 P&O Cruises Ship Review Ventura Reviews

There’s always something happening on Ventura. Enjoy delicious fine dining, a tranquil spa, many quiet spaces to unwind, great sports facilities and four pools. Evenings are particularly memorable, with the lavish two-deck theatre where you’ll witness elaborate shows and stand-up comedy. There are twelve places to dine including three main restaurants.

Title: Sunny Iceland Summary: Ventura and her sister Azura are our favourite P&O ships, been on them all except the now “departing” Oriana and all are good. Embarkation was excellent, parked car (Parking 4 Cruises) at 1pm through check-in/security and on-board in 15 minutes, and cabins were immediately available. Luggage arrived quickly also. Cabin E730, it’s no where as noisy as some make out, especially on this school time cruise so not as many night-clubbers, and the balcony is...

Title: Land of the midnight sun Summary: What a spectacular sight of Mother Nature at her very best! Still so warm and bright even at 02.30! Highly recommend cruising to Iceland, the waterfalls are wonderful. Ventura is looking very good after her refurbishment, cabins completely refurbed to a high spec. Staff always very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious at every meal. I felt thoroughly spoilt!

Title: First timers Summary: This was our first cruise, myself and my wife in her wheelchair. I can honestly say it was the best choice we have ever made. The service the food the entertainment were all top class. The Ventura was a truly awesome ship with everything you could possibly need on it. The crew could be more helpful and we loved every minute of this experience so much we have booked for next year

Title: Canaries May 2019 Summary: We had a very good experience of booking our cruise through Bolsover. They were so helpful, cheerful and always on hand to ask any questions. Holiday on ship was excellent as usual. Luckily we had been on this ship before. No complaints at all. Food excellent and staff could not do enough for you. Weather, however, could of been better but that is just one of those things sadly.

Title: standards falling Summary: this is our 25th cruise with p&o and our 5th on ventura and was our least satisfying. the entertainment was particulary poor apart from the headliners and freddy mercury. the so called comedians were very poor,in fact we walked out of both of the shows for both of the comedians. the daytime entertainment was particularly poor especially as the weather wasn’t very good .the service in the dining room was sometimes very slow. on the...

Title: Sliding downhill Summary: Cabin in poor condition (we have photographs). Electrical failures galore. Cutbacks evident, eg no tissues in public lavatories. New IT system not good. Account not available on TV. Twice there were items on account that we had not purchased, one resolved, other still outstanding. Staff, stewards & waiting staff still excellent. Will probably not travel with P&O again and certainly not Ventura. Just felt let down. However, we enjoyed the cruise overall.

Title: Holiday Summary: Had a lovely cruise but Ventura could do with cabin carpets and chair replacing was laying new carpets near all lifts while we were on board wall in cabin could do with a clean in ours it looked as if somebody had thrown a sponge at the walls and all run marks .and especially if p&o are putting prices up since stopping gratuities.

Title: Disappointed again. Summary: After enduring leaving Oslo fjord into a force 13 hurricane to end up anchored off Norfolk for Christmas Day instead of being in Amsterdam, Then re-booking to go into Amsterdam only to be told months later that we will be docking 45 minutes coach drive away, and finally cruising to Guernsey to be told we can’t get into St Peter port because of the wave height. We are becoming very disillusioned with P&O planning. Having...

Title: Think Twice Summary: April 5th – 12th. Broadly a disappointment (less the excellent waiter service in the restaurants and the quality of the food in the restaurants (which is nicely served and portioned I.e not overwhelming). A key consideration to any Cruise and Ship is how will you feel if you stay ‘cooped’ up in the ‘hotel’ for 48 hours or so? Failing to get ashore at Oporto and then St. Peter Port was a bitter disappointment (despite...

Title: Are p&o chefs on a budget? Summary: P&O’s new soon to be introduced tips policy seems to be taking effect, not a smile or interaction amongst dining room staff, food of really poor quality, ship and cabin spotless as per P&O high standards, hope this is only on Ventura or will be losing a customer!

Title: Med cruise Summary: Poor meat products in restaurants. Overall food and presentation not terrific. My wife’s nationality classed as Yemeni where’s that from ? . Service in restaurants was good, and ship in good shape. Shows average quality. P&O drinks package only suitable for heavy drinkers both husband and wife as you are obliged both to subscribe. P&O slipping behind competitors I’m afraid after many years of good cruises

Title: Returned 24th march Summary: Returned last week after cruise to canaries. Overall food standard and portion sizes have fallen. Found it hard to find a choice as I do not eat fish. My husband and several others were finned to his cabins for 3 days. Medical team were excellent. No appologies from p&o. Entertainment average. Lack of new guest speakers. Disembark ćhaotic. As someone with claustrophobic the exit was awfull as a barage of people being rushed off the...

Title: We prefer a smaller ship Summary: We did the 35 night USA and Caribbean cruise. We had an enjoyable adventure and particularly enjoyed south beach and ocean drive in Miami. Food was generally good. Entertainment was good in parts but not so good at other times with too many repetitive comedians. Service was very good. A disappointment for us was the lack of space for evening entertainment. The approximate size 800 guest theatre was not enough for 3,000 guests and the...

Title: SOUTHAMPTON RETURN via CANARIES and Lisbon Summary: Lovely cabin, larger than most ships and kept immaculately clean. Perhaps a benefit of a larger ship. Pity that quality did not extend throughout. 3000 passengers with many of them descending on the buffet during the lunch period does not help to promote a feeling of ‘calmness at sea’. Passengers seemed to occupy the buffet window seats from early morning to ensure that they were prepared for the 12 o’clock rush. The Buffet could have...

Title: Atlantic Crossing on the Ventura to the Caribbean Islands Summary: We have had a wonderful twenty-eight day Caribbean cruise sailing on the Ventura. It was an amazing voyage across the Atlantic Ocean. The cruise overall was excellent. The staff, food and entertainment were excellent. We can highly recommend a cruise on Ventura if you like day time and evening entertainment. The Headliners Theatre Company were excellent performing their shows throughout the cruise and the singers, magicians and comedians were also very good. Looking forward to...
