Summary: Booking our first ever cruise through Iglu was efficient and stress-free with P&O our chosen cruise line, and with an exciting 14 night cruise of the Mediterranean aboard Ventura, we eagerly awaited the day of our departure from Southampton. Arriving by car we were swiftly transferred to this magnificent ship along with the other 3,200 passengers (but not overwhelmed by the numbers) and we were quickly settled into our balcony cabin situated on the 15th deck. Not having any previous experience of cruising, our first concern was getting around this fabulous ship. We soon located all the important facilities aboard and settled into our first night at sea, a day later braving the notorious Bay of Biscay.....just.

We were so impressed with the standard of hygiene throughout Ventura, the staff efficient and always smiling. The choice of food in the numerous restaurants we found to be excellent, the service first-class, well appointed cabins made our cruise comfortable with magnificent views from our 15th deck balcony. There was plenty to keep us occupied during the days at sea with wall-to-wall entertainment programmes from breakfast to the early hours of the morning. One of the highlights of this fantastic 14 day cruise was the exciting ports of call Barcelona, Lisbon, Monaco, Vigo, Palma, Gibraltar and Ciivitavecchia.

Taking the onshore organised trips makes a nice break and gives a brief insight into places which you might like to visit at greater length at a later date, but these trips come at a price.....very expensive, which seems to be the general opinion of other passengers who we spoke to. This is a magnificent ship and we could not fault any aspect of our first cruise. We are now seriously thinking of doing it all again, maybe on another P & O ship, though we will always remember our love for Ventura. Thanks P&O and the entire crew on Ventura, our first-ever cruise was one to savour.

Summary: Ventura is a very big beautiful ship. Family friendly and well catered for disabled and not so abled bodied older clients Excellent service in all areas around the ship. Freedom dining is not to everyones taste ,we were very lucky. some diners were not so and had to wait at times up to 45mts to 60mts,so out goes the freedom.

Busy times between6.30pm to 8.00pm. Food very good indeed. When booking forgot it was around Easter time so the ship was full, too full at times in the buffet areas, around 500 children on board no trouble expect the main pools were taken over by them. There is an adults only smaller pool at the very front of the ship but it feels so isolated and because of this very few use it.

Not as dressy as I would have liked, casual was too casual although we did have 4 x formal nights, the Captains night was when people made the effort to dress up. Entertainment two shows very good indeed Mark Walker comedian and Walk like a Man tribute to The Jersey boys. Would cruise with P&O again but on a smaller ship. For us the Ventura Enjoyable, Excellent service, but Too Big.

Too Full
