We had a fantastic holiday aboard the Ventura, and would definitely consider P&O again. We went with our two children, both under 5, so the Night Nursery and Kids Club were a godsend! The food was great and the drinks were reasonably priced. The Staff are friendly and a credit to P&O. There were of course some niggles but nothing major, for example, it is advertised as a family cruise ship so free soft drinks would have been nice as The under 5s tend not to drink Tea and Coffee... Fruit Juice would have been fine, we're not asking for Sugary drinks like Coke or Lemonade to be included. Our Cabin was extremely well kept by our cabin steward but it did look a little tired. I.E the couch was sun bleached, the walls looked yellowy. Whilst on the subject of the cabin, we chose The Superior Deluxe Cabin for the extra space, the Sofa Bed was ideal for our 4 year old to sleep in and it was made up every night by our Cabin Steward. On the whole this was a fantastic ship that took us to some wonderful places in an extreme comfort. The on-board activities for both adult and Children are great, the entertainment was of a very high standard and the food was delicious. I would recommend P&O to anyone.
