Ventura Cruise Review by sarah01
- Sail Date: January 2015
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Outside Twin with Shower
Embarkation was quick and easy and we were on the ship in minutes.
The entertainment on the ship was the usual production shows plus cabaret entertainers. We've seen all the shows and some of the entertainers so many times we feel we are word perfect. Why can't the shows be changed more often or each ship have their own shows? We saw all of them on the Arcadia last year. and on other ships. If P&O are going to keep employing the same comedians they should at least insist that they change their jokes. It's very lazy to keep using the same material. Even the crossword puzzles in the library were the same as the Arcadia.
We were on Freedom dining and usually ate at 6.30pm so never had any problem getting a table of our choice. We never saw any queues at any time.
We always managed to get a sunbed by the Beachcomber pool if there by 9am but the open decks were crowded and the sunbeds laid out like sardines. Although there were quite a few children on board we never found this a problem and enjoyed the age range of the passengers.
Although we've cruised with P&O many times we feel we'd like a change of entertainment, new menus, would like to feel that a cruise is special not just a run of the mill holiday so think we might have to look at other cruise lines in future.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
BonaireWe last visited Bonaire about 6 years ago and were very impressed with the improvements since then. The port now has a nice promenade and has several small shopping malls with tourist and other shops. There was a craft market with many stalls selling interesting, well made goods and the building is still ongoing. Although there isn't a beach in the port there is one about 20mins walk to the left of the ship after the promenade ends. There are other lovely beaches a short taxi drive away.View All 593 Bonaire Cruise Port Reviews
