Artemis is child free the other 2 both family ships as first timers i would go on the Oceana very friendly ship nice food cabins ok as for balconies big enough for 2 seats ans a small table but if you look at the stern of the ships they may have a bigger one and yes they can get windy but not that often,happy cruising?

Thanks for your answer ... I like the idea of a friendly ship... Oceana or Ventura, need to make a decision and get booked as we celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary this year !

May I suggest you go to the P&O site and register on their Community Section. There are different forums devoted to each of the ships on there and you can gain a lot of information. I have been on Oceana in the Caribbean and agree she is a good ship for that cruise. We had an aft minisuite which was amazing with the balcony overlooking the wake. We haven't been on Artemis yet but are going to the Eastern Med. this year. Can't say about Ventura, haven't been on her but she's too large for us. Hope you have a fantastic time whichever ship you choose.

Thanks for the tip about the Community Section and we think the Ventura may be too large for us too but it does look a wonderful ship.

We have had Balconies on Ventura and Oceana.The Oceana balcony was quite small but OK.As for Ventura we have only recently returned so we are upto date.Our Cabin/balcony overlooked the Stern and was not overlooked on some ships you may find this tobe a problem.The Cabin [B748] was excellent. and the balcony quite large when compared to Oceana.It was private and had views on 2 sides.We do find that Balconies over the stern can get very hot proably because there is little air movement.Have not had a Balcony on Artemis just a sea View so cannot really comment.But Artemis is a very different ship to either Ventura or Oceana.If you are looking for a traditional cruise Artemis is the ship,but she is showing her age.During school holidays both Ventura and Oceana may well have a number of children on board which may be a consideration for you.And of course Ventura is Big but on our recent cruise 1st timers seemed to enjoy it .

Royal Caribbean. Something for...

By Dean Michaelides

Every single year its seems like more and more ships are being released. 3-6 star 300 passengers to 6000 passengers there are hundreds of cruises out there now. My question is can anyone beat Royal Caribbean and do they have a ship for every one?I recently had a training with a Royal Caribbean rep and she advised there aim would be for cruise customers never to look elsewhere when it comes to cruising. A bit like Dubai for Holidays. There idea it to have such a wide range within there fleet f...
