Ventura Cruise Review by wise11

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Inside Twin with Shower

The embarkation process was smooth, arrived and checked in within 30 mins.

Our cabin was indoor, c366 and was as expected. Not a huge amount of hanging space/storage but for a short cruise was adequate.

It was a port intensive cruise. We visited Gijon, it was meant to be la coruna but due to poor conditions the port was changed. A nice coastal resort worth walking to park and headland opposite old town.

Bilbao we didn’t do an excursion we got the shuttle to town. Did an independent walking tour, took the funicular up for views. Took the metro to areeta, walked back via there to ship 3.5 km - nicer than central Bilbao.

La Rochelle was lovely. €9 to enter all 3 towers. Loads of eating choices. No need for excursion if forecast is good.

Cherbourg we went to mount st Michael. Our guide was rather eccentric and got only an hours free time after excusing ourselves of his company. Journey was 5 hours. Organised ship excursion and the most disappointing

Nice enough. Smaller shower area when compared to aurora. Not much hanging space. Decor modern. Bed comfy.
