Sail Date: Dec 2016

We have just come back from a cruise on the Ventura. We were on it in April 2016 and everything was ok. They seem to have cut costs on the food. Used to get 4 - 5 king prawns with a prawn cocktail now lots of little ones with no taste. Steaks have shrunk to half the size and depth also lacking taste. Breakfasts are good except for the toast. Tea time in the waterside buffet was not worth going to tasteless sandwiches. Curled up toasties. Hard Teacakes. The cabin was good (De luxe balcony). They have also increased the cost of using the internet. Its now £12 for 24hours for browsing and we used to get 120 mins for £35. I had already booked to go on the Azura in april 2017 and i hope its not the same as ventura or we shall be going to another cruise company.
