Ship Facts: Ventura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ventura Deck Plans
Ventura Adventure
This was a superb cruise for our 7- strong family covering 3 generations. The Southampton embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and trouble free.As seasoned cruisers, we knew what to expect on "Ventura".Our son, his wife and their three children were highly delighted with their state rooms and all aspects of their first cruise.

The facilities offered to the children aged 9.12 and 15 were vibrant, varied and safe. Adults wanting a quieter time could utilise the peaceful OASIS terrace and pool.

The entertainment was intelligently varied - something for everyone! The "Ventura Theatre Company" was superlative. The staff were particularly friendly and attentive to our family`s needs.

We were delighted with the Captain since he articulated matters both maritime and social with simple fluency and warmth.

The seven ports of call were wisely chosen but it was too hot to enjoy them thoroughly.

One might expect with a passenger list of 3,389, that the public areas might be crowded but this was not the case - one could always be accommodated easily in the lounges and restaurants, pool and deck areas.

We would recommend "Ventura" without hesitation.
