Review for Ventura to Europe - All

5th time with P&O cruises (2nd time on Ventura) and the experience has gone south. Boarding at Southampton. Due to a delay to us getting onto the ship, we were sat jammed in the terminal for what felt like ages. Zero Covid precautions in place. Main dining hall. Requested a table for two at the early sitting. We were allocated a mixed table for six at the late dinner sitting. Staff really ...

Average Experience

I am a fan of P&O and have cruised with them a number of times to various destinations, but this cruise was average at best and will make me consider carefully if I cruise with P&O again. We selected and booked the cruise at fairly short notice about 2 months ago, accommodation choice was limited but we were able to book a Balcony cabin. The ship exterior and public area were in very good ...

First cruise post pandemic after 20 years of cruising with P&O. Standards dropped considerably. Food in restaurants poor with menu choices cut. Self service cafeteria choices cut. Often food was cold, and for some reason you had to ask every day for marmalade at breakfast. Sometimes you were told there was non on board and had to insist on being given some. Booked glasshouse for family ...

Don't be fooled by the basic cruise price - There's much more to come once on board

We are a recently retired couple who enjoy cruising and have cruised on many of the major cruise lines. We picked this one as it was just before the Summer peak period ( We didn't know it was half term in England ) and we were looking for a bit of sun and relaxation. First the pros. The ship is still beautiful despite being 7 years old. Our stateroom was kept immaculately clean . Our attendant ...

This was a two week cruise so my comments are the same as the previous week but I did wish to comment on the port visits, which in some cases were not as positive as the previous week. As I need to write more I would say that the ship was far more crowded this week, which wasn’t great. It was nice not to have wear masks this week, whether this was because the Covid cases on board had lessened or ...

Enjoyable but not the experience it was before Covid

While the cruise was enjoyable many small things detracted from the experience. Some were no doubt due to Covid regulations but some seemed due to an economy drive such as the change from individual toiletries to large fixed dispensers with no conditioner or body lotion. Face cloths were also no longer provided. The cabin was clean and well serviced and the food was generally good, although there ...

Great Locations despite the strange covid rules

We'd been to Dubrovnik before and wanted to add Split and the rest of the Dalmation coast to my bucket list so we'd chosen to go on this trip a few months ago. But we didn't expect to find the lingerings of covid to have such an impact on the embarkation and with the day to day running of the ship. The TUI check in was terrible, it took 1 hour 45mins, then there was the famous Manchester ...

Enjoyable cruise - reached our expectations

Overall - we felt that P&O delivered on their promises, and provided good value for money. There were some small issues, however the impression we came away with was a positive one. Arrival - I’m aware that COVID arrivals are changing so this won’t be relevant for long, but we arrived early and went through the testing queues quickly. It was about 45 mins from the porters taking our bags to ...
