First Time Cruiser

Age 70s

I'd never fancied a cruise - this was a friend's choice for a "girly weekend away" for us 2 older ladies. I expected to hate every minute - but actually really enjoyed it. Our cabin was spotless and the beds were really comfortable. The whole experience was so good that we have booked another cruise for the Autumn. I simply don't understand the poor reviews given by some people ...

We chose this cruise for a 3 night break. Never cruised with p and o before and we were very impressed with the whole experience. We chose a balcony cabin which was kept immaculate by jay our steward with plenty of hanging and storage space . The restaurants offered a varied selection of food which was always hot or cold depending on your choice. Hand cleanser was compulsory on entering ...

When I opened the door to cabin R 751 on the 14th floor Riviera deck, my heart jumped with joy.Why was this cabin still available when I booked the cruise just a few days before departure,I asked myself.What can be wrong with it?The balcony in the very corner of the starboard side with the whole of the ship spread ahead,utter perfection.Now, I always book a cabin with a balcony,whether I travel ...

We chose the Ventura after going on a mini break in 2016 to Bruges. There was a group of six including three elderly people. The whole experience for all of us was first class from the time we arrived at the dock until we departed. The food was first class as was the entertainment and the hospitaity we received was out of this world. Everyone was so attentive and helpful. The ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

This was our second cruise and we had previously been on the ventura about 11 years ago (the first trip after its maiden voyage). We went back to the ventura as for only two nights we didn't want to spend most of the cruise looking for facilities. After reading the reviews I was worried that I wouldn't enjoy it as much and ruin my memories of our first cruise with our children, but Im glad to ...

Age 70s

Third time on Ventura and 5th cruise with P&O, chose for the ports of call, and enjoy exploring on ones own which these destinations offered. This ship is now 8 years old, and yes some signs of wear here and there, but standards are maintained. We had an inside cabin mid ship, which having had one before, for six nights was just right. Suggest if a longer cruise and in the med when warm and ...

Age 60s

We chose this cruise as an 'initial' taster for our friends (2 couples) who had not cruised since us three 'boys' had served in the Royal Navy together in the late 70's. My wife and I have previously cruised three times, Island (Star/Escape) and Cunard (Queen Elizabeth). We were unsure what to expect on this occasion as all the reading/research we had carried out was 'on how big the ship was'. ...

I booked this as a treat after a busy X mas for myself and my husband , I was sceptical about the whole thing , a lot of reading about cruising there seems a element of snobbery, well I loved it yes a mini cruise was for us anyway a bit booze cruise not what I'd do on a week (my days of partying every night unfortunatly have gone,but after a hectic X mas at work just what the doctor ordered ) ...

We went with 2 other couples on this 2 days to Guernsey. This was our first cruise and it will not be our last. We were so impressed with how efficient the whole process was. Everything about the experience was first class, the food was fantastic the service was superb and friendly in the restaurant, we went for freedom dining which suited us better. The bars were busy and not too long await for ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

This was our first cruise ever - a 'gift' for our wedding anniversary. We were put in cabin B344, an inner one. Although we personally found the temperature to be a bit warm (as we like to sleep in cool temperatures), most would find the 23C all-round room temp to be very cozy. The cabin was certainly big enough for two of us and the queen bed quite ample. We had 2 nights of gale force 8 ...
