Ship Facts: Ventura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ventura Deck Plans
Butlins at sea

We sailed on the Ventura five years ago and loved it. We loved the british feeling with no brash americans being pushy, fantastic ship. Boy were we dissapointed when we went back on it again. Although we paid slightly less as we booked a late booking, we found it had seriously gone downhill. Big parties of loud drunk men and and foul mouthed women were all over the ship. Possibly due to the fact the price has come down it is now encouraging people who would normally holiday in Benidorm.

Although the food in the main restaurants is passable, sirloin where there once was fillet, mostly lacking taste, the Lido is nothing short of poor. Big displays have been replaced by a few odd trays here and there.

If for some reason you were confined to your cabin then room service, free on this ship before and on every ship we have sailed on, is now being charged for. £4 for a burger, absolutely disgusted. The tv system used to be very good and was all free, now most films are chargeable. A tour of the ship, free again before, now costs the princely sum of £75 per person. It seems that P&O are penny pinching on silly things. Completely put us off sailing on P&O and you cannot believe that they are owned by the same people who own Cunard. There really is no comparison.
