Ventura Cruise Review by ecogranny

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

The embarkation process was very efficient and worked well.

Our cabin was clean & comfortable, the food excellent, entertainment poor, communication by newsletter or PA not very helpful. There was no information about the Saturday activities, only for the Sunday.

We had wanted to to visit Brugge again but no such luck. At the last minute at 7am Sunday morning it was announced that ' too windy to dock at Zeeburgge ' the whole point of the trip!

There was no rocking and rolling to be felt so we were very surprised! We just meandered along the English Channel by the White Cliffs of Dover all day and returned to Southampton.

P&O must have made a packet!! If each passenger spent £50 on drinks or in the shops on board they would have made £150,000!

When I cancelled the taxi I booked the taxi driver said it definitely not too windy.

Wouldn't travel with P&O again after this experience.

Cabin Review

Inside Twin with Shower
Cabin OB B408

Beds comfortable & clean, small but well fitted shower room. Tea & Coffee facility and mini fridge in cabin.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

One other issue we discovered was that P&O don't allow Cabin Service Breakfast on the last day - we didn't find any information to that effect and left the order in the handle of the cabin. It was collected but no one bothered to tell us we couldn't do that on the last day - so no breakfast for us. Other cruise lines have offered that service in the past.
