Cruise Search

BLYTH - Answered a Question by Austen (16 Sep 08 15:49)

There is a mixture of reviews more good than bad but with any holiday in a hotel or a cruise ship it is up to yourselves to make it what you what it to be. If you take all the bad reviews no one would ever cruise as so many seem to like making the most of small issues that arise. Now one night we cam back and our towels from the bathroom where literally strewn all over the stateroom but go to bed quick phone call in the morning all resolved and a bottle of good bubbly to say sorry now we could have made that story have legs...........

We've just been on ventura and have booked to go again( only with the kid) this is really a family ship and we did find it less refined than Oceana for example. . The cabins were lovely, really nice. Dining was good, waiters and cabin staff great.Food lovely Our downsides mainly revolve around the clientele this ship seems to be attracting and therefore the entertainment provided. If you like a Butlins style holiday experience you will love it. If you dont then you wont! However the red bar and Metropolis are both lovely and I would hope that there is more variety than we experienced on a longer cruise. If you have a suite you will have a balcony which is overlooked but sticks out further than the others so will have more sun if you want to have some quiet time together. Really, give it a try... we didnt find it awful, once we found some places we liked it was great its just more obviously aimed at families than most ships and those people who like a good holiday camp knees up will be the ones raving about it, along with those with kids :) .

We have just been on the 2 night taster cruise, and if Ventura is like Butlins, please send me the 2009 Butlins brochure! [I will post a review as soon as time permits.] .
