10 of us went as a group for a 3 day break , time away from children , grandchildren , nagging partners and husbands :) We arrived at Southampton and was whisked through security and passport control at such a speed, so different from airports. before we knew it we were onboard ! The staff are lovely and very friendly. Room had window with restricted views ( lifeboat outside ) Very clean and pleasant. Top tip adjust your temp control to suit you ( i froze the first night ! ) warm as toast once i realised. Food is top class in the buffet . The two other places to eat included in the price were fab. Black tie was great we all enjoyed dressing up. We decided to eat at the beach house on the last night , we paid the extra as my sister and i fancied the ribs , they looked fab . Tasted awful :( everything tasted of pine and lemon toilet cleaner ! we couldn't eat them at all ! others meals looked fab . The nightclub was great fun and didnt close till the last person left. We enjoyed the quizes in the afternoon. The drinks are pretty much the same as pub prices . You can go to reception and get a tally of what you have spent at any time.. All in all a great time and a great taster cruise . Read Less

Overall enjoyed our cruise but improvement needed on the interior of the Ventura. In our cabin the one chair was all frayed and looked very worn ,electric socket was hanging from the wall ,the sheets were torn in both beds and below the mirror in toilet the damp had corroded the wall. Wi Fi charges for a day was exorbitant. The staff in the hairdressers at the spa were extremely overpowering with their attempts to sell products. Food on the whole was very good in all the restaurants and the staff were very courteous. The tannoy system was not working in our cabin and we had to open the bedroom door to hear any messages. The majority of staff at reception were helpful with just a couple of exceptions. We previously cruised with Celebrity X and would have to give them the edge when coming to a decision on our next cruise. Finally P and O spend a few pounds on the inside of Ventura to attempt to get return customers. Read Less
