Great entertainment, great food, visited wonderful places but was never able to get a sunbed on deck as people put their towels on and were gone missing for hours.

A very relaxing and enjoyable time. We were not particularly interested in the activities which is why there is only an average score and the entertainment varied a lot - some 5 star and some 1 star which is again why the score is 3.

This was our first cruise and although we felt at times that the pool and deck areas were overcrowded, thus finding it difficult to get a sunbed or swim in the pool, we felt relaxed at the end of our holiday. Embarking and disembarking was very well organised and the booked excursions too. The entertainment in the evening was very good. The food choices were good too.

Ship very clean; staff courteous, very polite and friendly. Restaurant staff, extremely pleasant, housekeeping staff serviced rooms very well. Do feel bar staff struggled at times in the busy bars to keep up with demand. Food excellent at all times. My 1 slight concern was the obstructed views rooms on floor 8. It was basically no view, has the lifeboat filled the window, so that was a disappointment, I would of just had an inside cabin if I knew the window had no view.

I went on this ship for 10 nights and my experience was amazing, staff was most helpful, our cabin was cleaned each day. well done to Russell. Our Waiter/waitress Marvin and Esther was great. They were amazing and a credit to P&O and a shining star. They will always be remembered by us. Our holiday was great thanks to all the staffs on Ventura.

Our first cruise since Covid. We travelled as a couple for a special birthday and anniversary. We booked a Deluxe Balcony and were not disappointed. Cabin was spacious, we enjoyed having the couch to utilise. The balcony was big enough for chairs and footstools, with a little drinks table. Plenty of space to move around. We were on Deck 9, so our balcony was overlooked by the other decks. This didn't bother us. We didn't use the entertainment facilities, they didn't read great, nor did they sound great when we walked past. But, the venues were always full, maybe I'm overly critical, as we go to lots of shows when home. We enjoyed exploring the ship, the shops are over a few decks which was nice. There was a good mix of bars to choose from depending upon your atmosphere choices. We enjoyed freedom dining, and only had to wait 30mins for a table for 2. Or immediately seated for shared table. Everyone is brought to a shared table, then when table is full everyone orders collectively. Delicious pizza bar....by far the nicest food on the ship! Everyone was raving about the flavour. We took a litre each of our own spirits and mixers, so we could enjoy our balcony. The complimentary dressing gowns and slippers is a lovely touch, even on breezy evenings we could utilise our facilities. Boarding and disembarking was simple.
