Ventura Cruise Review by gillianc1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2017
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Outside Twin with Balcony and Shower

*Excellent embarkation and disembarkation - very well organised

*The cabin was spacious enough and had an extra large balcony - which was shaded but this suited us

*Freedom dining in the buffet was great, less so in the restaurants downstairs where the choice was limited

*The 3 speciality restaurants were all excellent and to be recommended - sitting on the top deck sailing out of Naples into the setting sun and eating wonderful food was an unrivalled experience

* Marked lack of decent entertainment and activities, expected interesting lectures about the ports of call and the area travelled through, not 'pop' psychology and the royal yacht Britannia

*Service couldn't be faulted, cabin steward was excellent and interesting, restaurant staff helpful

*Some very good excursions, particularly Pompeii, the Etruscans sadly cancelled due to lack of interest. All ports were easy to access and great places nearby to visit easily on ones own

Never again want to be on a ship which sails out of European ports with a deckload of people singing Rule Britannia so no probably wouldn't sail with P&O again
