Do not pay any attention to poor reviews about this ship..... This was our 2nd cruise on Ventura,and there was nothing at all negative about our time onboard.Some people,it seems,just have to moan about something.P and O are a good company,and Ventura a good ship.Book,go,and enjoy.Far from being "tired",or "in need of updating",the cabins,restuarants,bars,shops,and all public areas are very cosy and stylish.The food onboard,be it in the main dining rooms,self service buffet areas,or speciality restaurants is always of a high standard.The staff are all attentive,helpful,and above all,very good at what they do.And what they all do is ensure you have a wonderful holiday whilst onboard.The entertainment is high quality and varied,with something for everyone.I certainly never saw signs of boredom or dissatisfaction as mentioned in some reviews.Embarkation and disembarkation was extremely efficient,as were the procedures and facilities available for going ashore at ports of call.So to sum up,if you take any notice of the negative reviews and decide not to cruise on Ventura,you will deprive yourself the opportunity to enjoy a brilliant ship,and a wonderful holiday.I only returned home from the cruise yesterday,and this is an honest review,with no connection to P and O cruises,except from being a satisfied customer.

Ventura still as good
