Just got back from a brilliant Cruise on Ventura 5th to 19th dec and ate in bay Tree each evening food wa lovely but my husband disliked menu on 2 nights so asked waiter for an alternative and had steak instead no problem. we had Dinner in White Room on 1 night food was delicious but service very Slow so by time we finished meal Pirate Party was over and we missed it. would'nt bother with alternate dining again as Bay Tree resturant food and service was lovely. We paid £56 for meal for 2 and bottle of wine in White Room. If you want to know what is on the menu for that night look at your Interactive TV in your room it will tell you. We loved Ventura and will be going back ignore any bad reviews they are just nit picking.

If there is nothing on the menu you want and you do not want the alternatives that are always on offer. Then go and look at the theme night menu. You have paid for all your meals and to pay extra in the white room for anything less than a special occasion is pointless. The steak on the alternative menu in the dining room was good. The White room that is a matter of opinion. I would think that reading all the comments about it we were just unlucky. But the service in our opinion was very, very slow. We went to the best of british theme night buffet in the waterside and it was brilliant, cant wait for that one again. But the main dining room was great in our opinion. Have a lovely holiday wish we were going again soon.

The restaurant menu on any P&O ship tend to be a bit more up market on Gala (formal) nights i.e lobster, fillet steak etc, so choose a non formal night to go to MPW. You can always view the main restaurant menu in the morning and decide on the day. There is always alternatives to the main course, sirloin steak, salmon, chicken breast and you can always have prawn cocktail or caesar salad as as a starter alternative to whats on the menu. Unlike other P&O ships Ventura does not list these options on the menu but your waiter should tell you.

Crown Princess to become home from home

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

I don’t know about you but when I go on a cruise one of my favourite things is the food, I love trying all the international dishes and eating food that I wouldn’t usually eat at home. I’m sure you will agree that dining on board your cruise should be one of the highlights, it certainly is for me. So when I read Princess cruises latest plans for their menu’s on board I have to say I wasn’t overly convinced from a personal perspective.According to Princess they ar...

Move over Miami

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale? H...
