The inside cabins on the Ventura are 160 sq ft in size which is average, and slightly larger than on some of the other P&O ships. The cabin you speak of should be very quiet (unless you have noisy neighbours of course)! You are well away from the nearest stair well, and only have other cabins both above and below you. Being right at the front of the ship, you will not have other passengers constantly walking past at all hours to access their cabins either! You MAY hear the waves hitting the bow, but I doubt it, and you will probably hear the anchor being dropped and raised. The only thing you have to get used to is waking up in complete darkness, WHATEVER THE TIME OF DAY! Whether or not it is worth getting an outside cabin depends on how much extra it costs and how much you would like one! It will be exactly the same size except that it will have a window in place of the large mirror over the headboards of the beds. Traditionally, the most stable place on board is as low down as possible, equal distance from the bow and the stern (amidships). However, it is considered more prestigious the higher the deck you are on, and it will be more expensive also. It is not usually too rough in the Caribbean, and the Ventura is a very large ship, so I do not think you should worry too much about being seasick. Have a think about it. I have only ever had one outside cabin, and I certainly would not pay very much extra for the priviledge. I would rather use the money enjoying myself on the ship or on shore! Happy cruising.

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...

By Paul Craggs

Paul Craggs's blog

 Now its a general fact that us Brits do not like to tip as much as our American cousins and when it comes to tipping its a bit of a mine field so I thought I would explain as much as I can When it comes to tipping its a general rule of thumb that on most ships its not actually compulsory there are ways round it and im about to details them out To get a bit of clarification it was only actually Norwegian that were compulsory and now they are all inclusive anyways so I guess it ...
