Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Outside Twin with Shower (Part-obstructed View)

We have just returned from cruising with Ventura and it has been the best one ever, done 9 before, first with P&O, but this one was amazing. Flights with Thompson Dreamliner were good, only flew economy but the leg room was good. Flight attendants were superb and couldnt do enough to make the journey comfortable.

Check in on embarkations was quick and painless. We visited Grenada, St Lucia, Dominica, St Kitts, St Maarten, Tortola, Curacao, Bonaire and of course Barbados. The food was excellent, served hot and with fabulous waiters. Drinks on board were reasonable but they do let you purchase alcohol from their shops to drink in your cabin and do not take shore purchases to be returned on disembarkation, not like any other cruise company we have sailed with before. Entertainment was first class, had two tribute singers, Robbie Williams and Freddy Mercury, fabulous comedians and Opera boys (like Il Divo) were exceptional. Headliners, ships dance troupe were really talented along with the singers. The speaker David Prebus was one of the most interested speakers I have ever listened to, we actually had the pleasure of having dinner with him My only compaint was trying to fit it all in :-( Well done MV Ventura, captain Charlie Carr all the staff on board. Anyone reading this, do yourself a favour and book, we cant wait to come back

We booked late but were not dissappointed with the cabin, we usually have a balcony but I will make sure I book in time when we return and we will do. Our cabin steward Rocky was one of the best we have ever had. Thanks for the extra body lotion Rocky
