Ship ready for refit

Ventura Cruise Review by Woodywotnot

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

Itinerary suited us, good mix of sea days and port days.

Ship now looking tired, damaged and torn seats and leaks from ceilings in public areas and marked and damaged fittings in cabin, although the ship was spotlessly clean. Ship didn't seem to have the atmosphere it usually did, cabin steward and waiters didn't seem to have time to talk. Most days we were waiting for food in the buffet restaurant. The theatre show times had been altered and made it difficult to get to the theatre and a show afterwards. Many of the little fancy touches that made P and O special were missing.

Shore excursions included a lot of walking, not suitable for me. Picked only two with minimal walking, and still ended up struggling to cope. Not enough information is given on board ship about the ports. What shops are within walking distance, where the bus stops are and how to get to them.

Entertainment staff and Headliners theatre company made the holiday, they are so hard working.
