 - 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: 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: Poor food and service. Summary: 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.

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...

Title: 28 day cruise to Caribbean Summary: 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...

Title: Christmas and New Year Canaries cruise Summary: Although we have cruised many times during the past 25 years it was our first at Christmas time and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the moment we boarded. The atmosphere created for the holiday period was magical with fantastic lights trees and decorations throughout the ship, individual Christmas trees in the cabins and even a Christmas market day. We has a 2 year old in our party who was enthralled throughout with so much...

Title: Emergency Summary: My husband was taken ill on the port of Lisbon and transferred to hospital. He is still there waiting to be well enough to be repatriated. The cruise medics on board were fantastic. I remained on board as my husband was not happy with me being in a Capital on my own. Since arriving home P&O have phoned ever day for an up date. What fantastic care. I have learnt that they hope to get...

Title: Canaries Islands Summary: Very rough through Bay of Biscay both ways rather, uncomfortable even for regular cruisers like us, but good weather at the other end made up for it. Overall the service on board was good as usual but we felt that dining room standards had slipped regarding the wearing of slit jeans and casual wear on black tie evenings which should have been refused entry in accordance with regulation standards. The staff were very friendly and...

Title: Review Summary: Captain was very entertaining and friendly. We did see quite a lot of him and he seemed very genuine. Staff very helpful and obliging. Food standards I feel had dropped slightly since my last cruise. Found that overall cleanliness was not as expected and as previously found. Furniture with stains, drain at the side of the outdoor swimming pool littered with previous day’s debris and crumbs under tables in buffet quite disappointing. Ledge with kettle...

Title: Pre Christmas holiday Summary: Really enjoyed the cruise, the sea could have been kinder but it was the Bay of Biscay, and yes we booked at this time of year. We had a Superior deluxe balcony, are very first in 20 cruises. It was fabulous loads of room, two television, the husband could get up make a cup of tea, watch the news then go on the balcony all without disturbing me, a real advantage for early risers. Food seemed...
