Title: a wonderful trip Summary: This was 2nd cruise for my wife and I and once again was a wonderful experience. We visited 9 different destinations some of which we had never seen before and enjoyed all in perfect weather except Dubrovnic where it rained. This gives us an excuse to go there again. The food in the Bay Tree restaurant was excellent so much so that we never found the need to visit the speciality restaurants on board. Our...

Title: Experience on Ventura Summary: Overall cruise experience good but a few issues with service in Freedom Dining taking 2-2 1/2 hours to be served. Also cost of shuttle bus in Dubrovnik was a shattering ?œ4.50 pp each way compared to ?œ3 in Corfu. Also had outside cabin , during rough seas, cabin actually vibrated so badly that we had to be moved for the night. Will think very hard about outside cabins in future. Really enjoyed the atmosphere on...

Title: Great Holiday Summary: This was our first time on Ventura and having read some recent reviews we were a little apprehensive. We did not need to worry. Check in at the airport was quick and the last we saw of our cases until they were delivered to the ship. Embarkation was the best we have experienced. We were having coffee on the ship within an our of landing at Genoa airport. The cabin was good and even with...

Title: Not all its cracked up to be Summary: Overall an enjoyable experience although a few issues with the quality of the food, having to send a number of dishes back as they were inedible, no apologies were forthcoming. Service in the restaurants was generally to a high standard although there were some instances where the staff were less than attentive. Particularly disappointed with the 2.5 hours it took to get from the ship to St Mark’s Square in Venice using the provided and...

Title: “Ventura”ing to Italy in style. Summary: Overall, we had a great cruise from Genoa to Venice and back (14 days) on Ventura. Our cabin (deck 11 balcony) was excellent and steward service first-rate. We had freedom dining in Saffron Restaurant and it worked very well – better than we anticipated. Food was good and well presented but spoiled by slow service which often meant missing evening events. Menu was rather repetitive. Entertainment was largely of the noisy cabaret variety, which was...

Title: Return to P&O Cruises Summary: Having returned to P & O Cruises by chance, at short notice and having been with Princess for approximately 4 years, we were very pleased with the cruise and the ship. Somethings had changed i.e. silver service, anytime dining, etc The overall cruising experience was much improved. One of the main factors was the buffet section. Although busy at times, they always had a great selection on offer and of good quality. The other improvement...

Title: Family cruise Summary: Good points: A nice ship and wonderful staff and food fabulous especially the speciality restaurants which we visited of Marco Pierre Whites “The White Room” Wonderful special experience. “East” by Atul Kochar very nice again but we were disappointed that although we were aware Atul himself was on board, clear announcement of when he would be hosting was not available until for us it was too late. The ship was definitely dated compared to the...

Title: Fantastic Ventura cruise Summary: Just returned from one of the Fly/med cruises on Ventura and what a fantastic cruise. Flew out from Birmingham to Venice, early start leaving at 6.30 am but this meant we were on board by 11.00 and back off the ship into Venice for a good few hours before we set sail. Next port of call was Kotor, then Corfu, Rome. Corsica and Genoa. The itinerary was great, every port had something different to offer,...

Title: 5 Ports in 7 Days Summary: I last cruised 20 years ago on NCL ‘SS Norway’ and 20 years later I cruised for the 2nd time – I was really impressed with Ventura, apart from her colossal size she is very elegant and spacious. On board we had an outside (restricted view) cabin which despite having a lifeboat suspended outside of the window, allowed a considerable amount of light in! Because there were 3 of us (wife & daughter) we had...

Next day Abi went...

Title: Its the best cruise we have been on Summary: We have been on cruises before with other providers and this was by far the best everything about it was top class, the food was exceptional, we had a balcony cabin and it was as good as a hotel room, unlike others we have experienced which were very small and pokey, we will not use any other cruise line but P&O from now on

Title: Ventura 2/4-7/4/2014 and 16/7-23/7/2014 Summary: We joined the Ventura for her first sail of the season around Italy,from Genoa to Venice, in April There were one or two teething problems getting 2-3 thousand passengers to and from the airports but that was down to the inefficiency of the Italian airport staff (overwhelmed by the numbers) not by the well-oiled P and O machine.We enjoyed this one week cruise so much;we were upgraded to a junior suite, were looked after by...

Title: Cruise Summary: We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on Ventura although personally we found the ship too big. Literature and announcements told passengers not to reserve sunbeds and leave them, but most people paid no attention to this and it was a bit of a bunfight to get a sunbeds on sea days. There was not enough deck space around the adults only pool. The food in the restaurants was good although each P & O cruise we...

Title: Venice / Genoa cruise Summary: Overall very good, a few “gripes” but I doubt P & O will take any notice! 1. It is noticeable the dining room & buffet staff are less friendly & helpful compared to when they received tips direct. 2. The wheelchair assistance in Venice was a disgrace, simply there were no chairs there & we were advised we would have to wait about 45 mins for assistance with more buses arriving all the time with...

Title: Fantastic caribbean break Summary: I thought the ship has a real wow factor and was over whelmed by the variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. Each evening there was somewhere different to eat including the beach house restaurant which was one of our favourites It was just so laid back In there and the staff were very helpful. We also found that service was a lot quicker in there as opposed to the main restaurant. The choice...
