 - 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: Uncertain times… Summary: The cruise we have been on was one week to Amsterdam Bruges and Guernsey. Major maintenance work being carried out around the public areas of the ship …main deck next to the most popular bar on the ship. Rear pool area and bar, with seating removed, and safety tape stretched across, as a safety precaution.Very strange management decision. Standard on the Ventura definitely going down.

Title: The canals of Amsterdam Summary: We had a most enjoyable cruise. The tour of the canals of Amsterdam was excellent with a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. Due to a misunderstanding we did not get to Bruges. We were led to believe that there was a shuttle bus when, in fact, there wasn’t. The service for dinner was excellent but the same cannot be said for breakfast with a very slow set of waiters who, at times appeared truculent. The...

Title: Amsterdam and Bruges Summary: Booked this cruise for a family of 4 adults in a superior balcony room, due to 3rd and 4th passengers paying £1 each, making the cruise great value for money. Unfortunately our other main reason for booking was to stay overnight in Amsterdam, but due to the new port tax P&O have chosen to stop at Ijmuiden instead which is an hour away by coach. Add to this that they changed the schedule so we...

Title: Fjords 16 August 2019 Summary: Brilliant ship and staff. Cabin steward was excellent, food excellent too. Headliners shows were top notch. Comedian had very dated material, not very funny. The bands in the Havana and Tamarind were not as good as some we’ve seen on P&O I’m afraid. Flam mountain adventure trip was very well organised and enjoyable, one of our party did have an accident with the zip line though the line at the end whipped his ear so...

Title: Norwegian Fjords Summary: Ventura is a good stable ship but she’s looking a bit tired. The dining was very good and the staff very friendly and polite. The ship doesn’t have the wow factor that other cruise companies that we’ve sailed with. The Fjords are very pretty and worth a visit

Title: Fjords are super Summary: We were blessed with good weather and had a great trip. The ports of call are great and allow you to see the fjords up close. It is possible to book excellent trips upon reaching the ports. We enjoyed Olden, Flam and Stavanger. The trip on the Eco boat from Flam is excellent. The Flam railway is overpriced and overrated. On board our cabin was great and cleaned very well. Disappointed with the dining experience....

Title: Fjord cruise Summary: By and large fine but had to ask for several items that should have been waiting in our cabin. Namely complimentary slippers but more worrying toilet rolls. The latter arrived quickly enough when requested but you shouldn’t have to ask

Title: Amazing fjords adventure Summary: Just returned from this excellent fjords cruise on the wonderful P&O Ventura celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a superb cruise. Lovely weather, calm seas, breathtaking scenery, exciting shore excursions ( troll cart ride to Briksdal glacier is brilliant ) and most excellent food and drink on board. We tried all the ‘pay extra’ restaurants and the main dining room and couldn’t fault any of them. Entertainment on board was a mixed bag and...

Title: Last P&O cruise for us Summary: Ventura is a beautiful ship as are the staff. However, unfortunately, we felt the standards had slipped with P&O on this trip, we are a quiet friendly outgoing couple, and enjoy the dining experiences in the various restaurants and enjoy the bars and clubs Along with the formal nights and everything that P&O have to offer. On this trip, we felt overwhelmed by a certain element of other cruisers, possibly first time cruisers making us...

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: 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.
