I am going on Ventura in January for he first time I have also seen the reviews I have done 8 previous cruises and usually write lengthy reviews about them I try to be balanced but all reviews are a matter of opinion-for example my last cruise on Boudicca was disappointing in many respects but read other reviews and you would think it the best ship afloat The main criticisms I have read about Ventura is that it is big (tells you that in the brochure)and there are kids on board (tells you that as well) My point is simply this-make your own mind up-I have criticisms of every ship I have been on but overall the experience is great which is why I keep going back Enjoy!

We have just returned from the Ventura were we for the first time choose freedom dining. There were no problems in getting a table at the time you wanted provided you are prepared to sit at a table with others i.e. table of 4,6, 8 etc. If you want a table for 2 then you will struggle a little in the peak times i.e. between 7-9pm. You book your table usually a day in advance but there no problems.

I am finding that a lot of my new customers are giving cruise a taste because of the hassles flying, big queues, over the top security, scan this, scan that and then hanging around for 2 hours for your flight, and that’s if it is not delayed. Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...
