P&O Cruises celebrates next step for Ventura

Date Posted: 04 Sep 2006
P&O Cruises has held a celebration to recognise the keel-laying for what will be the biggest liner ever for the cruise company.

Ventura is set to go into service in April 2008 and will also be the biggest cruise ship for the British market, the company has said. The boat will leave dry dock in June 2007 for completion and will be delivered to P&O in March 2008.

"Ventura will be the largest cruise ship built for Britain. Her scale will allow us to make this the most varied and exciting cruising experience of any British ship," said P&O Cruises Managing Director, David Dingle.

"Ventura will be 'designed' for purpose, with every detail meticulously crafted to make this a remarkable holiday experience. There will be an abundance of choice and faultless service throughout, whilst soothing relaxation will be characterised most clearly in Oasis, the largest and best equipped spa of any British ship."

Mr Dingle referred to Ventura and the design principals used in its construction as "the next step forward" for the cruise industry in the UK.

The boat's 3,100 passengers will be treated to a luxurious onboard experience, including eight restaurants, six boutiques, five pools and three show lounges. One of these will be the largest theatre ever seen on a British ship.
