Ventura - P & O well done
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
After dinner we went to see the shows, such as they were, we had no trouble finding a seat but go 15 mins before start of performance as they always start on time.The entertainment in the Arena Theatre was ok, not great but ok, the same few performers in every show just in a different order. You need to check the daily activity paper to find out where the entertainment is in the various bars we missed a lot because we thought the theatre was the best place to go.
We had a balcony cabin (would not cruise More without one) the only problem with it was it was the first on at the bow end a long way to walk to reach the restaurants etc but that was really a minor issue and after all my choice when booking. I found the ship very easy to find my way round and if you remember every time you get out of a lift you are facing the front of the ship you can't go wrong.
The prices for drinks on board was very reasonable we were pleasantly surprised no more expensive than in a pub at home. We did find the prices in general in the Caribbean a lot more expensive than the last time we went a couple of years ago but that is not P & 0's fault.
To vacate your cabin by 9am on the day of departure is too early considering you don't get the cabin till late afternoon when you embark.
The organized trips were expensive, use local taxis the taxi drivers are very switched on and will give you all the info you want and the best places to visit.
We would definitely Venture on th Ventura again. Less
Cabin review: A201
Cabin was fine plenty of wardrobe hanging space and shelves, bathroom a bit small if you are overweight we are not so it was ok. Balcony bit small but ok. We were on Austraila deck, be aware if you are on the some of the decks below the passengers above can see your balcony space!!
