Ship Facts: Ventura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ventura Deck Plans
BRILLIANT FAMILY CRUISE WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED AT SOUTHAMPTON DOCKS OUR FAMILY HOLIDAY BEGAN. AS SOON AS I PULLED INTO THE DOCKS AT SOUTHAMPTON, A VERY FRIENDLY GENTLEMAN GREETED US, HE REQUESTED WE OFF LOAD ALL OUT BAGGAGE. ALL OUR CASES WERE TAKEN FROM US STRAIGHT AWAY, HE THEN ASKED FOR MY CAR KEYS AND HE DROVE MY CAR TO THE OVERSTAY CAR PARK.

We walked into the arrival lounge, sat there for 30 minutes then we were being called to go on the ship! So much better than an airport when you have two children aged 4 and 11.

This cruise ship is amazing for families with young children. My husband and I have two daughters aged 4 and 11.

The childrens clubs are amazing. Both our children couldn't wait to go every day. Young children up to the age of 8 have their own indoor soft play area in the theme of Noddy, Noddy is on the ship aswell and they had a noddy welcome party and he joined the children to watch Noddy movies and eat ice cream.

Our older daughter enjoyed pool parties everyday with her club and enjoyed lots of games and competitions whilst on board

Both our children made lots of friends whilst on holiday, the staff were amazing with both our daughters.

In the afternoon there was noddy tea time during 5-6.30pm in the waterside restaurant and all the food was children food. Both our girls looked forward to going to dinner every evening.

My husband and I both relaxed on this holiday, seeing our children having so much fun made us both very happy. You can stay with the younger children in the clubs but by the end of the holiday our 4 year old didn't worry if we were there or not because she was having so much fun and made lots of friends!

All the bars on the ship would give me milk in the evening for our youngest daughter without any charge. This ship made us feel so welcome with our young children.

The interior of this ship is beautiful, there are lots of bars, restaurant and entertainment to keep you busy.

We visited the Norweigan Fjords during our cruise and even thought the weather was a little cold the places that we visited were so beautiful.

Would definately recommend this ship to families.

Thank you P&O Cruises for making our holiday so amazing, your staff were excellent and the ship is brilliant.

Can't wait to cruise on this ship again!
