Had a week on Ventura for our honeymoon in september 2014. Embarkation was really quick and very easy at Venice and after a seamless journey from Manchester we were in our cabin by lunchtime enjoying the view from our C deck large balcony.
After a good look around skipped lunch and went for afternoon tea, in the main restaurant which was nice. Lovely slightly late sail away from Venice which I think changes soon with the cruise ports being moved so appreciated the view of St Marks etc
weather little rainy next day but at sea so did cookery demonstration and chilled!
cabin not as glitzy as RC but loved having tea and coffee facilities. Spacious, good hanging space, great size balcony. Comfortable bed, good sized fridge. Ice when requested and fresh milk delivered each day with room service orange juice before breakfast. Happy to bring champagne flutes for us to have our own champagne that we brought with us (honeymoon) which was lovely to have on the balcony. No noise, little movement felt and great views. Now spoilt and will want a balcony every time as we did make the most of it, especially on sea days where we retreated after lunch for a bit of us time with tea or a glass of vino.
