We took the family (children and grandchildren) on to Ventura to celebrate our Ruby Wedding and we can't speak highly enough of the ship, facilities and friendliness of the crew. Our cabin was bright, spacious and well tended for the entire voyage, and in the restaurant our waiter Costa, couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. The food was excellent, and the only problem was that we had to make a choice!! The children's facilities were also excellent and the team of leaders are to be congratulated - especially in the 5 - 8 group, where they managed to keep two very active boys happily occupied all day. The night nursery was a real bonus, which meant that the six adults in our party could have dinner and a show each evening knowing the (4) children were asleep and cared for. This was our third time on board Ventura, and she lived up to expectations yet again. Thanks to lovely Captain Charlie Smith and his crew for another superb holiday.

Great holiday

Cabin Review

Cabin 720
Cabins perfect for our needs. At aft of ship so straight up in the lift to children's nursery area and to self service restaurant for Noddy's Tea Party! We had 720/722/724 all on E deck. These cabins also had baths as well as showers, so good for families.
