Sail Date: Dec 2011
Cabin: Junior Mini Suite with Balcony and Bath/Shower

This was our first cruise and had been booked 18 months in advance, so we had had plenty of opportunities to research our chosen ship and read lots of reviews, some of which were great and some not so good.

So our cruise has finally come and gone and what did we think of the P&O Ventura?.....Wonderful, beautiful, amazing.

We both found it very difficult to fault this lovely ship in any way, and thought the P&O experience and service in general was excellent. A very enjoyable flight with Thompson delivered us safely to Barbados, and the only unpleasant part of the trip followed, a very tedious and congested bus route to the dock itself followed by a VERY hot check in 'shed' Nic fainted in the heat but quickly recovered as we had our first view of Ventura, She is a very large ship and quite a sight when you see her for the first time.
