 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: P & Queue Summary: If this had been our first cruise we would probably never cruised again. The title of this review, P & Queue, is an overall impression of this cruise, it appeared that every couple of days we had to queue. Manchester Airport Arrived early after stopping over night at an airport hotel, had to queue for 2 and a half hours to check in, only one check in desk manned, the P&O representative said there should...

Title: No longer the P&O I remember Summary: P&O have gone down market. I was very disappointed with the meals. They often arrived cold and on cold plates. And when commented on the opposite happened, too hot to touch plates and food that had been overcooked. Silver Service no longer exists although the company still advertise it on all their TV stations. The waiters are still excellent and I did feel they listened. I had a special request and wanted loads of water...

Title: Caribbean holiday Summary: We thoroughly enjoyed our recent holiday , but are very disappointed with P&O. As regular clients we are very upset with the treatment we get from the company . There were many last minute passengers who enjoyed excellent perks for booking late , such as upgraded cabins , where they received from P&O fruit bowls in their cabins on arrival a bottle of bubbly also a box of chocolates .WE paid full price but didn’t...

Title: Nov/Dec Caribbean Cruise Summary: We went on this cruise to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and it definitely ticked all the boxes! We had a great time travelling with my Brother and his Wife, who were on their first cruise. We have been on the Ventura a couple of times before and still consider her to be one of the best ships we have travelled on. The food was excellent, as were the staff. We all enjoyed the evening...

Title: Caribbean Carnival Summary: I have just returned from 2 weeks in the Caribbean on Ventura, the procedure getting there on the new Dreamliner aircraft was a very slick operation with minimum delays and hitches. (thank you P & O), You even managed beautiful weather. My one gripe which although may sound petty is extremely irritating, is despite notices and announcements the reserving of seats whether in the theatre or around the pool area goes on unabated, P &...

Title: Our 4th visit to the caribbean Summary: The sunshine was lovely, our cabin and balcony was lovely, the food was good and most of the staff were good. However they obviously couldn’t sell this cruise and lots of the cabins must have been sold very cheaply because people at dinner told us so. Not their fault or ours but P. & O didn’t seem to look after previous customers. Lots of the customers were extremely noisy and loud and it has rather...

Title: A drop in standards. Summary: Having recently returned from the cruise and sharing our experience with other cruisers I feel that I should express my views. I have cruised with P&O a number of times and noticed a number of changes which I feel has lowered the overall cruise experience. Plated meals rather than silver service is a backward step. Stopping the sale of alcohol from the on board shop for consumption on board does not seem logical when you...

Title: wonderful itinary Summary: tHave done several cruises, mainly with P and O and really enjoyed this one to the Caribbean starting from Genoa on 15th October. As my husband tries to avoid long haul flights this one to Genoa was ideal – cutting out the poor weather and unpredictable seas off Portugese coast and Bay of Biscay. Stopping off in France, Monte Carlo, Majorca the Spanish mainland and Tenerife before setting sail to the Caribbean on flat calm...

Title: Ventura And sunbeds Summary: P&O must do something about the sun beds ,I think they need to follow R C I example ,if you don’t produce your card which is swiped through The computer before you can have a towel ,and if you don’t return your towel you are fined 20 dollars works wonders it saves all fighting and Bickering some people had two lots of beds .so unfair ,and inconsiderate.

Title: Fly Cruise. Cruise,Great!! Fly, Not-so-great Summary: Can’t Fault the actual cruise. Ship, shore destinations, top class. Exceeded our expectations of first cruise on very large ship. All aspects better than anticipated. Ship to shore transport at all ports of call better than Cunard. HOWEVER! Although P&O made it at easy as possible to transfer from UK to embarkation port, “Jet2.com” were one hour late departing from East Midlands. The plane was very cramped and there was a question mark against the...

Title: Nice cruise shame about the ship Summary: Food great. Service superb. Destinations terrific. Check-in check-out superb. Tendency for P&O to charge for anything that could be termed extra. This might be the same with all cruise lines – don’t know. Ship badly designed. Can’t navigate decks easily at all. Promenade deck cannot actually be promenaded. Not enough deck space for the number of passengers. Much of it is down to P & O charging passengers with more money than sense ?œ20 pp...
