We didn't know what to expect, i had gone on a cruise 30 plus years ago in my teens and couldn't remember too much but my partner had never sailed, so there was a slight concern of sea sickness ....which never came i'm pleased to say. The Ventura was a loverly clean ship and you hardly knew you were sailing.

The start / checking in was the best experience ever , the atmostphere was so calm and i lost count of the P&O check in staff at Southampton. This set the holiday off very well . You were given a ticket with a letter on it and when this was called you went up to the check in ....we were there in a full hall and only waited about 20 mins from us arriving ...oh i forgot to add they took our bags at the car and we never saw them again until we gor to our cabin !

The information on board was second to none as your TV gives you information on position, miles travelled etc and also gives very interesting information on video form of your ports you are visiting.
