Ventura cruises for 2021


Ventura sails year round out of Southampton, UK, over 2 to 35-nights with itineraries that visit the Baltic Sea ports, the Iberian Peninsula, Mediterranean cost of Spain, and the Canary Islands.

You’ll find plenty of onboard activities for the sea days and nights between Southampton and distant itineraries. This is a family ship. In January and February of 2020, 2021and 2022 she makes two 35-night round trips to the Caribbean.

Life aboard Ventura
Ventura sails year round out of Southampton, UK, over 2 to 35-nights with itineraries that visit the Baltic Sea ports, the Iberian Peninsula, Mediterranean cost of Spain, and the Canary Islands. If your time is limited, take a ‘get-away’ cruise of 2 to 4 nights to one of the Channel Isles, Belgium, or the Netherlands. You’ll find plenty of onboard activities for the sea days and nights between Southampton and distant itineraries. This is a family ship. In January and February of 2020, 2021and 2022 she makes two 35-night round trips to the Caribbean. If you select the cruise that stays overnight at New Orleans, this will be a highlight of your journey. (Her name Ventura comes from Bonaventura – ‘good fortune’.)

Entering service in 2008, at 116,017 GT and carrying 3114 passengers, Ventura is one of P&O’s three larger ship. She was last refitted in 2018. Sporting a distinctive rounded bow, Ventura is filled with modern luxuries and innovations. Expect a large ship feel, with comfortable surroundings and a British flavour. The ship is well suited to seniors, families and adult couples. Children are cared for in each age-group, and there are a night nursery and family shore programs. The ship is filled with British artworks, lounges, bars, child-free Retreat, and quiet areas.

Accommodation
There are five types of stateroom and 34 price grades. Fifty-seven percent of the cabins have a balcony. Staterooms have twin beds or king-sized bed, adjustable AC, safe, vanity writing desk with mirror, good storage areas, wide-screen TV (with major news channels, sports and movies), telephone, mini-fridge, tea/coffee-making facilities, daily steward service, and hair dryer. Inside staterooms have a picture mirror. Outsides have a picture window or porthole. Cabins with private balconies have sliding doors that open to a patio set with two recliner chairs and a small table. Some balcony cabins have a bath with shower. Suite and Penthouse Staterooms are much larger and come with many extras, including butler service. Allow for service and additional charges for, say, room-service dining, depending on the five types of accommodation.

Suites are very spacious, with shower over a bathtub, DVD player, mini-stereo, coffee machine, ironing facilities, and lounge area with sofa. Special touches include bathrobe and slippers, ironing board, fruit basket, flowers, champagne and chocolates on arrival, and daily canapés. Penthouse Suites are simply more spacious again, and all suites include butler service. Some cabins have 3 or 4 berths, inter-connecting doors for families, three cabins are wheel-chair accessible, and the 18 single cabins have wide single beds.

Food and Dining
The ship has three main restaurants that offer six-course silver service traditional British dining, with a range of other cuisines. Opt for fixed seating at either of two set times for dinner, or anywhere at any table dining. The Beach House is a family self-service restaurant, where food is available all day. Alternative restaurants, at extra charge for non-suite guests, are: East, an Asian/Pacific Rim restaurant specialising in seafood and thai spices; The White Room, overseen by celebrity chef Marco Pierre White, is a waiter-served Italian restaurant for families, or intimate evening dining indoors or on the terrace overlooking the ship’s wake; and The Glass House, for steak and seafood grills with wines selected by sommelier Olly Smith.

During the day the Tazzine serves coffee, chocolates, tea and snacks while at night it serves pre-dinner drinks, adjacent to the atrium dance floor. There are 19 lounges and bars worth discovering on a long voyage, including a modern interpretation of a London pub with beer on draught, quizzes, live bands and the occasional sport screenings. Afternoon tea is served daily. In addition, 24-hour room service is available in all cabins.

Entertainment
The 800-seat two-deck Playhouse Theatre is an excellent venue for shows, with two large video screens either side of the stage. The in-house Headliners Production Company features outstanding song-and-dance presentations superbly produced for each P&O ship at its Southampton studios. The ship features a dance floor in the three-deck atrium. The Tamarind Club and Havana show lounge are the ship’s multi-cultural night venues with cabaret, live bands and dancing. A video wall in the Metropolis lounge screens real-time footage of seven of the world’s most famous skylines. On the top deck is a huge open-air cinema screen. The Retreat is an al fresco spa terrace for adults.

The sports court has amenities for tennis, cricket, football, shuffleboard, quoits and golf. The ship’s gym offers personal trainers and the latest technogym equipment. There are three main pools, one covered by a skydome. The Thermal Suite spa provides natural skin treatments while the Oasis spa has rooms with ocean-view balconies. The Retreat is Ventura’s open-air spa that offers al fresco spa treatments. Ventura is great for families and children of all age groups, and includes a Night Nursery for under-5s.
