Sail Date: Nov 2015

Spent 3 nights aboard Ventuta sailing to Le Havre and Zebrugge.

This was my first ever cruise and I went with my mother who has cruised a few times,so has more insight into cruising than myself.Firtsly I must say We were both impressed with the speed of embarkation and the helpfulness of the P&O team ashore.Our cabin C316,was very tired looking and the shower facility not really adequate,however cabin was clean and well serviced by our steward.The food really let the ship down.Rushed meals and not particularly well presented.The Waterside buffet was a bit of a bun fight to say the least.Entertainment was mediocre and the background music in the bar areas way too loud,although you could find quiet areas.Excursions were good with informative tour guides.Would we go on this ship again? Definitely not for me.
