Ventura Cruise Review by Derek Goody

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Europe
  • Cabin Type: Inside Twin with Shower

We went to celebrate a friends 50th birthday, far too impersonal everywhere you went there was constant queuing. The food was not good at all, some completely inedible....We had an inside cabin, so you get what you pay for I suppose, but the Wifi didn't work, the TV was erratic, the air conditioning was appalling.....For such a big ship it feels very claustrophobic, the lifts take forever and are very small, the onboard entertainment was awful, the staff are helpful enough....The shore trip was the best part of the trip, as we left the ship!! Getting off upon reaching Southampton was nothing short of chaotic....Everyone trying to eat and leave at the same time is ridiculous. I tried to upgrade my cabin but no one seemed interested in assisting me with this...This was the first cruise I'd been on and probably the last...For the Ventura to be the P&O 'flagship' the rest of them must be awful..that's it really.
