school holidays. 2nd time on Ventura but the lack of coffee machines at the bars is no good for caffeine fans. There us one Costa on level 5 which is so busy one often left due to queues. There are machines in buffet restaurants but coffee is often weak I enjoy double shot lattes several times a day. The food is excellent, every restaurant every day but this is only ship I've been on where there id no all inc drinks package. Another deal breaker. Entertainment superb, friendly staff, super ship but lack of coffee machines at bar will not see me return. The breakers sun bar allows smoking outside but only on left hand side. You need to get up there early if you want an outside table. My best cruise by far was with AIDA prima the German cruise liner which is already re booked for next easter.

No coffee machines at bars and no all inc drinks

Cabin Review

Family Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower
Cabin AE D702 DD
Stunk of urine! Complained several times and they ensured deep cleaning of toilet to reduce the smell.
Irritating whizzing noise in overhead fan which came on every 5 mins 24 hrs per day. Kettle in room welcomed due to lack if coffee throughout ship.
