  • Sail Date: Jul 2014
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean

This was our second cruise, the first last year was on the Azura and we did not expect the Ventura to be as good. The cabin steward was excellent and couldn't do enough to make our cruise more enjoyable. We stayed in a 3 berth cabin, the last one on the starboard side. The extra berth was dropped down from the ceiling and was put down after we went out for the evening and put back up when we went for breakfast. We suffered a couple of bruises when going past to the loo in the night but nothing too bad. The itinerary was great and we enjoyed every port visited. My favourite excursion was the Herculaneum with a P & O excursion, the guide was extremely knowledgable and made the tour very interesting. Ports visited included Kotor, Corfu, Civitaveccia, Ajjaccio, Lisvorno, Naples. The younger people in our party enjoyed the water park in Corfu very much.

Personally I'm not a fan of fly / cruise and prefer going from Southampton, especially when trying to pack enough clothes for 2 weeks, but it did give us 2 more days in the sun so shouldn't complain. I'd recommend this cruise whole heartedly however. There was a group of 13 of us altogether (family and outlaws) and we all enjoyed.

Cabin Review

The Cabin was right at the back of the ship and people had warned us that it may be rough at times. However even when the sea was quite choppy there was very little movement to be concerned about. (given that one of our party is prone to sea sickness she didn't need any medication at all). There were three adults in the cabin and it was a bit snug when the top berth was down. However the steward came in to put it down when we went out for the evening, and put it up when we went for breakfast. There was plenty of room for clothes and loads of hangers available (always a plus). All in all I'd be happy to stay in the same cabin again.
