We chose this cruise as my husband had never been on a cruise before and we wanted to see if he liked it. We expected a 2 night cruise to be a 'party cruise' with hen dos and stag parties, and this was fine. The ship is enormous and so we ... Read more

After a fabulous 2015 Christmas and New Year trip on Oceana scoring top marks in review categories we decided to go back to what was our favourite ship so far, however too much refit work going on around the ship, too many areas blocked ... Read more

First up I would like to point out that P&0 are normally pretty decent value for money as they tend to be cheaper than most of the other cruise lines and as such I don't expect five star and will travel with them again however not on ... Read more

Revisited Ventura as I liked the itinerary but unfortunately the weather was poor in the Canaries which is unusual. The food in the restaurants was good. A bit boring in the buffet restaurant. On the plus side the service of the staff ... Read more

This was a taster weekend to Bruges Brussels however the port was changed to Le Harve in France due to the terrorist attacks. We understood this but there is nothing to do in Le Harve and it was a terrible choice of port. Embarkation ... Read more

As an ex Deck Cadet with P&O Cruises, this was my first experience of the present-day company, and I can only say it was a great disappointment! I have sailed with other Cruise Lines, and this was by far the worst experience. We ... Read more

What we thought would be a pleasant spring break on a 7 night cruise along the Iberian coast turned into a rather stressful experience. The dreaded norovirus had struck the ship prior to sailing so was being deep cleaned,hence a two and ... Read more

My brother, sister in law and myself took our mum on this cruise for her 80th birthday. We visited Amsterdam and Zebrugge. The cruise ship has zero wow factor. The buffet dining area is similar to that of a 2/ 3* hotel. The waiter service ... Read more

Flew out of Birmingham on a Dreamliner (excellent start) with the knowledge that our luggage would not be seen again until delivered to our cabin upon our arrival. Travel from airport to ship was interesting in a people carrier as opposed ... Read more

Is was the first cruise with P & O and I was very dissapointed with the level of service on the ship. I have cruised before with Ocean Village, Royal Caribbean and Princess. I found the staff on the Ventura miserable and unhelpful. The ... Read more

On-board activities: The TV in our cabin was the only real entertainment on sea days apart from a film, reading or walking – we don’t sunbathe/swim. We were expecting seminars / talks but there was almost nothing available and ... Read more

Dining, drinking and entertainment first class. As were the crew and staff. BUT... (1). The Theatre was too small (980 seats fro 4324 passengers). Only 46% of the passengers could get in to watch the shows. This appears to have been ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever - a 'gift' for our wedding anniversary. We were put in cabin B344, an inner one. Although we personally found the temperature to be a bit warm (as we like to sleep in cool temperatures), most would find ... Read more
