Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Inside Twin with Shower

We went on the Ventura specifically for the Strictly Come Dancing themed cruise from Southampton around the Mediterranean on 2nd June. We thoroughly enjoyed all the Strictly shows and meeting the Strictly dancers including Oti Mabuse, Graziano, Alijaz and Janette and head judge Shirley Ballas. The entertainment was very good indeed and if you didn't want to immerse yourself in the Strictly theme there was always something going on in other areas.

Our cabin was good for an inside cabin and it felt larger because of the clever positioning of mirrors however I would definitely choose an outside cabin if going again because that way you can sit outside. Our cabin steward Lourdes was so lovely nothing was too much trouble for her even getting me some extra hangers.

We mainly ate in the buffet restaurant and there was a good selection of different food every evening but we did get a bit fed up of the same four types of English cheese on offer every night! The main restaurant was nice but we found the waiters abit brusque so we didn't go there very often.

Cabin Review

Inside Twin with Shower

Cabin OC

Good with mirrors to make it more spacious.

Bathroom was small with a small shower.

Plenty of hanging space, good hairdrier and tea/coffee making facilities

Port Reviews

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

Excellent walking tour of well known sires being bused in between to cut out the walking time
