Ship Facts: Ventura Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ventura Deck Plans
Good Value for Money
My husband and I decided to have a last minute break in the Caribbean in an inside cabin. We had been on P & O Ventura in 2009. P & O are by far the best at transporting British passengers to the Caribbean. Using a bonded flight from Manchester we got off the plane in Barbados and straight on to a coach and off to the ship. Our luggage arrived soon after.

We found the food to be excellent with plenty of choice. The service was also good.

The main improvement this time was the entertainment. The shows were fabulous and there were some comedians on who were good on the whole. Last time we were on the ship there were several tribute acts. P & O must have listened to their passengers because there was only one this time.

Mary Peters, gold medalist from the 70's was on the cruise and did a great talk.

The Captain Paul Brown was very good. We heard he had ejected some passengers for bad behaviour and we are all in favour of this to keep standards up.

Our only complaint was the Cruise Director Huey Taylor. We nicknamed him The Invisible Man!!! I have never had a Cruise Director like him. He never introduced a single show or did any of the quizzes we went to. Someone told me he had been an excellent cruise director in the 80's. Obviously he is past his best and should consider another job.

I would certainly use P & O again for a Caribbean cruise.
