We were on club dining on Ventura. Mediterranean Legacies. Fabulous dining, If you do not fancy anything on the menu ASK. Our waiters would bring anything we asked for. Granted Royal caribbean was fabulous when we went on her the restaurants were so glitzy and yes she did have the WOW factor. But we did enjoy Ventura! All I can say is try and if you dont enjoy there are many more ships out there! Its what we all do Try and if you dont enjoy look elsewhere. We enjoyed our Ventura experience!Hope you do!

Thank you for your reply Mumford. I so hope we do as a single traveller I have had to pay a 100% suppliment even though we all booked nearly a year ago now, so I just hope it lives up to expectations. Just slightly worrying when you read such bad reviews compared to the American ships. Glad that you enjoyed yourself.

We have just come back from Ventura and very much enjoyed it. Compared to RC where the only restaurant open at lunchtime was the self sevice, it was much better. On Ventura, the main restaurants are open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner as well as the self service open 24hours. In addition there are three extra cost restaurants although we found that we did not need them other than trying the Tapas in Ramblas which was very good - choice of three for £2.50. Additionally you will find the drinks prices considerably cheaper and no charge for shuttle buses, where required. Bear in mind Ventura is a family ship targeted with children in mind but, although there were over 300 children on our cruise, we hardly saw them as they have their own facilities. If you are going at school holiday time, there maybe more although they do impose a limit on how many they can handle.

A Drinks package and is it worth it?

By Jodie Baldwin

Drinks packages?? A Lot of cruise lines offer these free at certain times as a promotion. A lot of guests I book say they don’t drink and can they have a discount instead and its just not worth them having. However it is FREE, and yes ok if you don’t drink alcoholic drinks the package will also cover soft drinks, bottled water mocktails and sometimes speciality teas and coffees.If you haven’t been offered a free drinks package when booking your cruise you may want to know th...
