Just got back from a 13 night cruise on P&O Ventura, Not our first cruise with p&o as we have been on oceana and oriarna . The ship was clean and tidy but the prices of the drinks were expensive, The entertainment was so poor after the first show we decided not to bother again, cheep tack entertainment all round P&0 need to get their act together or they will be losing customers. The cabin was ample size and kept clean by our fantastic cabin steward Gladson, The trips are getting far to expensive, at £40/50/60 plus per person, We found you can do the trips yourself for less than half the price. The food was very good on board at all of the restaurants and the self service buffet also had a good choice of menu. I think we will cruise again next year but look for other options, overall we enjoyed our time onboard but it needs to liven up a bit.
