We have sailed on ventura numerous times but have noticed a big drop in standards the lack of choice in the food both in the main and buffet areas. The food that was on offer was of a good standard portion sizes seem to be getting smaller. Also the ship is looking very tired tatty in places.
The main problem with this cruise was the change of port from Amsterdam to Cherbourg and le havre which we were informed the night before sailing by email P&O gave £50 on board spend as compensation great but we lost money due to pre booking attractions in Amsterdam ourselves not through P&O no compensation for that.
When arriving at the first port of call no trips organised and informed that there were none planned at all for this cruise we asked if they could recommend any things to see at the stop to which we were given a map and told enjoy your day.
