Two lower beds convertible to a king-size bed, Bathroom with small bath or shower and WC. Wardrobes and drawer space, table, vanity/writing desk, flat panel TV and radio, Safe, hairdryer and refrigerator, tea/coffee making facilities, direct dial telephone, fully air-conditioned.
It was actually an Inside Queen bed with Shower (PA), which was very comfortable and the bed was wonderful, we both had great night's sleep due to it's comfort.
As we expected the shower and toilet was a bit on the small side, but pefectly adequate for what we needed, due to the amount of time you actually spend in your cabin.
Ramesh, our cabin steward always kept it immaculate and there was plenty of room for my wife's dresses and my suits, however, my trousers did stay in my suitcase and I got them as and when I needed them. The Ventura's inside cabin was smaller than the inside cabin we had on board the Britannia, but it wasn't a problem. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine. I like the face the bed and the toilet is separated by the free hanging type wardrobe. Affords a bit of privacy.
The TV is soul destroying to operate. It's sooooo slow to do anything. Also when we were watching movies the sound was so low you could hardly hear what they were saying. Even after reporting at Reception and someone coming to look at it, it was just the same. We gave up watching any movies, Read entire member review >>
Inside Cabin - well looked after by the Steward, by today's standards the TV may be small
( on Britannia it's a large flat screen ) but not easy to modify even with a refit!!!
Always constant hot water power shower, bathroom small but fine ( again Britannia has the edge) Beds were comfortable, tea & coffee biscuits still a P&O feature.
Plenty of hanging space. Read entire member review >>
Big enough for 2.Queen bed comfy. plenty of storage space. Our steward Kundan looked after us well lovely young man, well mannered. Shower big enough, plenty of hot water no problems in 14 days. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was an inside cabin on deck 10 which was well presented and roomy enough, with good use of mirrors to extend the virtual size somewhat. TV channels were at best average, with the truly appalling BBC World countered only by the nearly as bad Sky News channel with some sports and a lot of ship channels, though films were available through the rather slow 'interactive TV' selection. The inside cabin was a new experience for us, but in truth we have always spent very little time in our cabin except for sleeping and found it well worth the cost saving we made.

It was ok. cabin Stewart was excellent I slipped on floor of shower 1st night and hurt my back. Curtain was too short. told steward and she said to report it to front desk but I did not bother. Wished I had paid for window cabin. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin B344, an inner one, for a 4 night cruise. 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 winds and slept like babies; the most we knew of it was a gentle rocking of the bed and an announcement by the ship the next morning.
The room was quite adequate for this size cruise. The bedroom area was the largest and had a small desk space and a tv set with a smaller selection of movies and tv shows which we really didn't bother with except for the news and ships news. You can also receive the ship webcam and another couple pages with ship information and shore tour information, which we found incredibly helpful. There was a small but adequate loo with shower. We would recommend you set the shower temp to 20C and leave the shower run for about 4-5 minutes before checking the water temp to avoid being turned into a lobster! You like hot water - they got hot water! There was large hanging area and quite a few hangers but you may wish to pack a few wire ones in your luggage if you have a lot of things that need to hang up. There was also a small cabinet with shelves and a safe which we found very useful. The cabin stewards are almost always lingering around the hallways before 8pm in case you run into problems or need a few extra towels and are happy to help.
We personally felt the inner cabin would be great for those who really only would be in there to sleep and change clothes - we would have requested an upgrade had our cruise not been fully booked. We found the lack of natural lighting from a window to be a little disconcerting, especially when waking up early morning. For that reason we booked a balcony cabin for our next cruise, both for temperature control and light (and a little private space to sit out and enjoy ourselves). Read entire member review >>
Bigger than expected. Can really feel the ship movement in the bathroom. Smelly toilet. Very efficient cabin steward (Cypriano). Good amount of storage. Can ask for extra child rails. Bit drab decoration. Very quiet. Not too far from lifts. Cannot move the twin beds together (not ideal for couple). Read entire member review >>
