Booked at short notice good value price been with PP before but not the Ventura. Took hotel and taxi offer no probs little wait but not a problem. Walked on ship after cheque in again little wait but lots of passengers to board. To cabin and was surprised at size considering we were at front of ship on starboard side. Put to rest cabin great attendant more than helpful sea virtually calm all trip. Food/had free time dining 8.30 about each night have to say food was excellent lots of choose,breakfast and snacks taken between buffe and restaurant we have no complaints on any food issue. Ports of Call. Several Spanish Cities no trips taken enough to see without same walk off possible at all local buses available and taxi are cheap in Spain. Visited Alicanti, Malaga, Valencia, Gib. Cadiz and Lisbon weather fantastic. In all cities City trips cost about 15euros each. Lisbon bus was difficult not enough busses on service walked around City. Need to go back to all. Entertainment/not that good I have to say ranged from comedian to dance acceptable but not impressed by same. Acctivities when at sea/plenty to do played TT and Cinema lots to go to. In all great to be aboard enjoyed. Getting of the ship however was another story. It was the worst discharge of passengers we have experience long lines of passengers from the discharge point back into the ship it was not organised no allocated areas to await call to leave MAYHem....overall an enjoyable cruise.
