Relaxing break with some pleasant stops by Cruiser56435572

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

trips off site made easy by berthing so close to each town. 12 day trip with 5 days at sea, leisurely whilst on ship but food was good and plenty to do to relax and do whatever you wanted. We had an excellent superior delux with balcony and sat out regularly. Only downside was anytime dining was limited by available tables, otherwise good value for money

Fab holiday by Cruiser77900445

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

enjoyed all of it my only complaint was I have always used the gym in the mornings for some exercise classes but was very surprised to be told there would be a nominal charge for this but did not expect to pay £7 per session ,which I thought was a bit steep .

setting sail by Cruiser46653809

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A nice ship.  We had a cabin with the balcony and separate sitting area which was well worth paying the extra  as we found the normal balcony cabin a bit cramped. Walk in wardrobe is always easy to access which is another nice feature.  Due to bad weather could not stop at Monte Carlo but still a very nice cruise.  Choice of shows each night is always a bonus, but lack of interesting lectures during the day definitely needs some attention.  Crew always helpful and a nice clean ship.  Feel the dress code needs to be upheld more as noticed some people took advantage.  A good cruise and would recommend.

Amazing week on Ventura with... by redders48ish

Sail Date: /

Amazing week on Ventura with my wife and son. He cruised for the first time at 16 and loved it. Food was great, waiters outstanding, cocktails moreish, entertainment fantastic - especially new astonishing show. The ship was in good shape, as was our cabin, and embarkation and disembarkation were both quick and efficient. Overall a wonderful week. Adding to that the Bay of Biscay was calm - in fact our local duck pond has more waves! We saw dolphins a plenty, some gorgeous sunsets and even a whale! Having bees to Spain and Portugal in this cruise, we then returned home to even hotter weather!! However, one observation. Dress code - scrap it or enforce it. Either way I’m not bothered, but I wish they’d do one thing or the other. It’s a kind of Russian roulette - will they be turned away or not? Or a penalty shoot out. Will they score, and get in wearing shorts and a string vest, or find out they’ve fouled in some way and, quite literally be sent back to the dressing room?

Mixed Bag - But I Would Do It Again! by ROKERDOK

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Time to update entertainment. Hearing same jokes from comedians, two years after last cruise, is lazy management.

Great trip to a very pretty island by CruiserKH

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A short but very enjoyable cruise. Being just a weekend break there were many groups/families there to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries etc. this all added to the excitement and gold nature of the crew and guests. We're now looking forward to our next cruise in December to the Caribbean.

Not bad, but could be... by wolfie583

Sail Date: /

Not bad, but could be better. Not sure what the refit actually improved. Certainly not our cabin. Farcical end to the cruise with all the passengers trying to get a breakfast before disembarkation. The restaurants simply can't cope with that many people. Britannia was good but this ship not so. P and O dropped the ball with this cruise.

Decent experience, though standards are dropping. by Ceasar49

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Decent experience, though standards are dropping. e.g. PG tips in the cabin, also scruffier fellow guests.

Wonderful honeymoon by Midge57

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Brilliant relaxing cruise. Ok due to engine trouble we missed Cadiz, but when you are on a floating 5 star hotel, who cares. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, especially as it was our honeymoon

Slow start but good cruise by CruiserKH

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After a shaky start due to engine problems which meant that we left Southampton 6 hours late at 11pm and the visit to Cadiz was replaced by a couple of hours in Vigo, so that repairs could be made. The cruise got under way properly with a hectic 4 days with visits to Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Florence and Rome all very interesting but extremely busy. Cartagena was a welcome change, plenty to see and do but without the crowds of people everywhere. And finally a quick half day shopping trip to Gibraltar.

Had a lovely time on... by lollylolly

Sail Date: /

Had a lovely time on Ventura. We were freedom dining in the Cinnamon restaurant. The food was very good. The waiters were very polite and friendly. The entertainment was also very good. We found the ship very lively and I particularly liked the Exchange pub. We had to miss one port as there was a problem with the ship, but the captain did not give a very good explanation as to what was wrong! Both embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly.
