A good cruise haunted by Covid

Review for Aurora to Caribbean - All

Getting away after the pandemic was a priority and for us and Aurora promised a nice no-fly month away to the Caribbean. With 'some reassuring changes' apparently. A pretty standard itinerary calling at Funchal on the way out and Praia Da Vittoria in the Azores on the way home. Testing before boarding was straightforward and we were pleased to see the Peninsular Club lunch was on offer to get the ...

We were really looking forward to this cruise and actually changed cruise line to travel with SAGA as we had loved SPIRIT OF DISCOVERY last year. Sadly, had a couple of passengers isolating from a back to back cruise to Norway just prior to embarkation. Those cases increased rapidly after sailing despite very tight testing and isolation protocols on board. We left the Azores, hopeful that numbers ...

We decided to go ahead with this cruise even though major alterations to the itinerary included the cancellation of all the American ports of call and also at the very last minute the cancellation of a call in Belize. P and O did compensate us with generous on board spend which certainly helped .Only 971 passengers boarded after the cancellations and there was plenty of space,sun beds,places to ...

Booked this cruise after sailing on a staycation cruise, it felt good to be back cruising. We booked a superior deluxe balcony cabin for the extra space as we were a party of three adults. Embarkation was reasonably smooth but once in the terminal some of the staff were less than helpful. We boarded the ship went to our muster point as instructed and then went to the shambolic Horizon ...

We had never done transatlantic, wanted to do the Caribbean and thought a ship using sterling would be easier. Travelling with a friend, 1 late 60s, 1 early 70s. We had only done Australia and the Pacific Islands before. We booked just before covid started, but we had booked for this date. We booked a suite to treat ourselves, butler and all. He is wonderful by the way. Dining - Horizon is ...

Having cruised before with P&O on Azura we were looked forward to this cruise as we had been told that Britannia is a better ship how wrong they were, staff on Azura went the extra mile to make everything special, Britannia cruise was like being on a floating hotel. nothing was special. Approx 6 weeks before P&O reduced the price of cruise which attracted unsavoury guests mainly in the smoking ...

The Ventura cruise departed on ,11the February for a USA/Caribbean cruise of some 35 days. Initial impressions of the ship were a bit mixed, some good, some less so. Our cabin was a balcony on deck 12, a reasonable size and a comfy bed. Our cabin steward was good and he did his duties well. Our first port of call was La Corrina, we quite like this call and went ashore for a shop and some ...

A Cruise from Hell at the Hands of P&O

We chose this cruise to get away from the worst of the British Weather, although for the first 10 days it seemed we had taken it with us. Whilst the weather improved the cruise of Ventura got worse. Ship Overall Dirty on the Outside and just as bad on the insde especially Waterside Buffet which for a restaurant was particularly grubby with stains on seating, sofa style backrests and the ...

Hygiene

Whilst we agree with a lot of the comments made about the Ventura. Some of the guests hygiene leaves a lot to be desired. Ignoring hand sanatisers on many occasions. In the buffet restaurant we saw on many occasions passengers blowing their nose & coughing into the blue serviettes & putting them back on the table. Men walking into the buffet area with no tops on. Filling water bottles from the ...

Overcrowded, poor organisation, poor management and very poor entertainment

Made a mistake by booking Ventura - Very noisy ship especially in the atrium with dance classes going on all day so unable to relax in the bar or coffee lounge. This went on in the evening so instead of having a pianist we had blaring music to contend with -very unpleasant so went to Glasshouse. Excellent cabin and "Elvor" our cabin steward was very professional and did a excellent ...
