Ventura Cruise Review by MollyMooster
- Sail Date: September 2015
- Destination: Europe
Although the sail away was a little late, we were very lucky with the weather and able to go onto the open deck 15 and listen to the band, and watch everyone / join in the party.
We ate in Saffron, one of the freedom dining restaurants on both nights, where we had the choice to wait for a table for two, or share. We chose to share, and met some really lovely people. We also went to the Arena theatre on the first night, although I wasn't overly impressed with the comedian. Then off to the Havana nightclub, first night was a Take That tribute and second night was a Tina Turner tribute, the club was packed both nights, but this didn't present a problem for the bar staff, who were really hard working and efficient.
We also had breakfast and afternoon tea in one of the buffet restaurants, which we were happy with. We had breakfast on the second morning in Saffron, and the quality was excellent, as was the service, always with a smile. The only complaint we had about the breakfast was that the toast was hard and cold, and had obviously been pre prepared. However, this didn't spoil our breakfast at all.
We didn't get to see all the areas of the ship in the two days, it just wasn't enough time, but what we did see was fab.
We went on a coach trip excursion on Guernsey, which wasn't very good, and didn't leave a great impression of the island, its probably not somewhere we would choose to visit to be honest, and we have decided not to bother with any more excursions when we go on future cruises.
We weren't due to disembark until half 3, but as we were ready at around half 9, we were allowed to leave the ship and collect our luggage, which was waiting for us. A very smooth disembarkation.
Fantastic weekend, we are already looking at booking our next cruise with P&O.
