Good cruise

Sail Date: May 2014
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

We went on board with mixed views after reading previous poor reviews of a similar cruise in the Western Med. Not being a stranger on the Ventura I took a discerning look on my embarkation. We were told the cabin wouldn't be ready until 1 pm but were beckoned by our steward to come into the cabin as it was ready. He introduced himself and was very informative advising us of our dinner booking and provision of other services he was able to provide. The cabin was spotless. When disembarking to spend time in Venice I noticed that the ship and it's fabric were clean and of a high standard.

The meals on board were excellent and our waiter was extremely attentive and informative. We always had a leisurely dinner. We lunched and breakfasted both in Waterside and Baytree finding the food to be of high standard. Some of the courses offered in the Baytree for lunch I would have liked for dinner.

The shows were good catering for all tastes, and especially liked the Liverpudlian More comedian.

Ports of call were good, we prefer to go on our own no disrespect to the tours P&O provided, our fellow diners did a couple of P&O tours and were very impressed. Less

Cabin review: Ventura D612

Cabin is of a good size wardrobe and storage space for clothes is good. The cabin was cleaned twice daily. Room service was always on time.
