The Good and not very good aspects of Ventura
Destination: Baltic Sea
THE GOOD There is a good selection of bar and entertainment venues and the main theatre provides plenty of good seating. Entertainment was varied and catered for most tastes. The Bay Tree main dining room was a pleasant dining area and had an adequate if not spectacular selection of meals. The shore excursion out of Olden to Stryn valley was interesting and informative even on a drizzly, cloudy day.
THE NOT VERY GOOD We had a late allocation inside cabin (D524) which was listed as an upgrade from OE to More OC. Avoid this at all costs. For 2 nights we suffered noise from the location close to the ships funnel.On the next day this turned into a mechanical vibration from somewhere close by. After complaints about the noise and vibration and several visits from various P&O personnel we were moved to a Deck C forward cabin for the rest of the week, and apart from some noise from the theatre was a great improvement.
The attitude of the predominantly Indian bar and lounge attendants was less than enthusiastic. The standard of food presentation and main course vegetable choices in the main dining room were poor compared to other cruises we have taken. Less
Cabin review: OED524 Inside Twin with Shower
Cabins in general are spacious for two people. Be careful in selecting cabin location, particularly inside cabins near the central funnel area. Cabin D524 and I would imagine ones above and below it should be avoided.Read All Inside Twin with Shower (OE) Reviews >>
