Yet another great cruise on Ventura. My third in 12 months on Ventura and a repeat of the itinerary I did 12 months ago. Due to an accident on the M3, it seemed that many passengers were delayed. This had the advantage of embarkation ... Read more

We like to cruise in the winter, to get away from the dark, rainy days in England, and we didn't want to do a long-haul flight, so it was appealing to sail from Southampton to the Canaries. This was our first cruise on P&O, although ... Read more

We had heard really positive things about P&O, and so chose them to be our first cruise. We selected a mini cruise of four nights to give us a chance to explore the ship. Before sailing we read some reviews and forums here and were ... Read more

We chose this ship and P&O because Cunard did not sail at the time we wanted. It was our first time to the Caribbean and coincided with our 40th Anniversary. We had not expected Ventura to rival Queen Elizabeth and chose a Superior ... Read more

We primarily chose this 28 night cruise because it was a non-flying winter sunshine holiday. We are seasoned cruisers of 20+ cruisers but this was our first with P&O. We have priority boarding with some cruise lines and we were ... Read more

Chose this cruise for the prospect of sunshine and warmth. The ship was in good shape overall apart from scruffy lift doors and grubby chairs in the Buffet. Food in the restaurant had improved since our last visit a year ago. However, ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on Ventura with smooth sailing for the most part and lovely weather. The Caribbean has been on our bucket list and it surpassed all our expectations. So many other reviews have covered things like cabins and dining ... Read more

Last year's 28 day cruise to the Caribbean was so brilliant in every way, so we'd no hesitation, along with many others, about booking the same cruise for this January. Why, after so many different cruises with other ships and other ... Read more

My first cruise on Ventura was back in 2010 when I was not impressed with the ship, so it was with some in trepidation that I returned to her. However, I must say that I was most impressed with the improvements I found. I am a frequent ... Read more

Thought we would give P&O a try as they are held in such high esteem by their past customers, maybe I set my expectations too high? We selected a 10 day Iberia cruise in an outside unobstructed cabin The departure port was Southampton ... Read more
