Review of Ventura

Launched in 2008, Ventura is one of the Grand-class PO cruise ships, together with ms Azura. The ship cost US $700 million to build and was last refurbished in 2013.

History - construction & ownership

P&O Cruises is based at Carnival House in Southampton, UK, operated by Carnival UK and owned by Carnival Corp. & plc. This British-American cruise line was originally a constituent of Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company. P and O Cruises is the world's oldest cruise line, having operated the first passenger ships in early 19th century. It is sister company of P&O Cruises Australia. P and O Cruises was de-merged from P&O group in 2000, and became a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises, which in 2003 merged with Carnival Corp. to form Carnival Corp. & plc. PO Cruises currently operates eight ships with a total guest capacity of 14,970 and 5% market share of worldwide cruise lines. Its most recent ship, mv Britannia, joined the fleet in March 2015.

The 116,017-ton, 3,574-passenger cruise ship Ventura was christened in Southampton on April 16, 2008 by the famous british actress Dame Helen Mirren (assisted by a team of Royal Marine Commandos). The cruise ship is particularly larger - by 30 % than any other vessel in the P&O Cruises fleet. This means there's more room for contemporary facilities, like expanded children-related amenities, recreational opportunities (bungee jumping) and different restaurants. What is more, it is difficult to find any sign of traditional P&O Cruises in the hardware - no card room, nowhere to have a sit in the library, no art auctions (all the pictures are on sale, but showed with the price) and no monotonous teak-and-cream colouring (there's cheery decor and modern artwork instead). The travelers are also distinct; still quite a lot of the retired cruisers that P&O Cruises is known for attracting, but also lots of families with kids.

Cruise itinerary program

Ventura itinerary program is based on cruises from Southampton and Bridgetown, including Caribbean Islands voyages from Barbados; roudtrip sailings from Southampton to Iberia (Portugal & Spain), Mediterranean and Canary Islands; "mini cruises" to Belgium, France and Holland; Transatlantic repositioning crossings.

PO Ventura

Cabins

Most Ventura staterooms are 165-sq.foot Balcony rooms (675). There are a total of 1553 staterooms in 35 categories. The largest aboard Ventura are the Suites (330 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

The quality of food aboard Ventura is of a high standard for such a big ship. The menus offered in the three main dining rooms change daily, and there is a Gala Menu on formal nights as well, put together by Marco Pierre White. Cinnamon and Saffron (two of the main dining rooms) offer 'Freedom Dining', meaning that guests can turn up anytime between 6:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. and dine where and with whom they like. Bay Tree is the third MDR and offers set-time dining called "Club Dining" by the line. There are 3 specialty restaurants, 2 formal ones - Epicurean, serving molecular gastronomy cuisine and Sindhu by Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar. The one informal restaurant, which proved popular on sister vessel Azura and replaced Las Ramblas, is The Glass House by wine expert Olly Smith (for-fee tapas-style restaurant).

Follows the complete list of Ventura restaurants and food bars.

  • Cinnamon Restaurant (528-seat, aft Dining Room; features Your Time dining from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m.)
  • Saffron Restaurant (528-seat, forward Dining Room; with fixed seating dining at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.)
  • Bay Tree Restaurant (596-seat aft Dining Room; with fixed seating dining at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.; also hosts bridge tournaments, card games, etc)

  • Frankie’s Grill (fast food bar, complimentary pizza/ice cream bar, hotdogs, burgers)
  • The White Room (182-seat Italian specialty restaurant).

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

P&O company doesn't go in for huge West End-style productions. Instead, expect revue-type shows with an emphasis on the singing talents of the performer; ventriloquists, magicians and tribute acts; British comedy. In the Arena Theatre, there are two main shows nightly. Times vary in order to accommodate the set dining times. Elsewhere on the ship, the main venues for live entertainment are Havana, at the back of the ship, and The Tamarind Club - a walk-through venue on Deck 7. In both these venues guests will find bands or singers on at various times throughout the whole evening. There is usually a guest band too, depending where the vessel is based. Havana is also the nightclub onboard ms Ventura.
