 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.

standards falling
By Allan Sandiford on 14 May 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

Sliding downhill
By MARGARET REYNOLDS on 13 May 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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.

Holiday

P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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.

Disappointed again.
By Phillip Smith on 29 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

Think Twice
By Darren Crook on 23 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

Are p&o chefs on a budget?
By Bill weaver on 15 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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!

Med cruise
By Mr B Beatson on 15 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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

Returned 24th march
By Deborah boyland on 01 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

We prefer a smaller ship
By David Iliffe on 01 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

SOUTHAMPTON RETURN via CANARIES and Lisbon
By Alan Farnsworth on 01 April 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

Poor food and service.

51st cruise with P&O (68th cruise under Carnival umbrella). Worst cruise we have experienced for food and service. Perhaps we have been too loyal for too long.

Atlantic Crossing on the Ventura to the Caribbean Islands

P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

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...

This was my first ever cruise to celebrate my 48th birthday. Booked as a last minute late deal, sailing round trip from Southampton to Bruges & Amsterdam. Thoroughly enjoyed myself & already have the cruising bug. Ventura is a gorgeous ship & I look forward to sailing on her again soon. All the staff were friendly, helpful, caring & all-round great.

28 day cruise to Caribbean
By Margaret Taylor on 11 February 2019
P&O Cruises | Ventura Reviews

We have been cruising with P and O for 20 years and are now at Caribbean level. We are accepting of the fact that over the years the small “ niceties” are slowly disappearing as there is overcapacity in the cruise market and it now seems very price sensitive. However, we do feel that the standards on P and O are not up to what we would expect and this was brought home to us...

Lovely cruise met some really nice people, few grumpy ones, as usual, very nice seas and was great to get away from the English cold. The staff could not have been more helpful and ever so polite, more so than previous cruises.
