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.

The Amazing Royal Princess ...

No fly cruises have now become so popular. Each year, as the number of people taking cruise holidays increases, so too does the number who want to cruise, but dont want to fly. There are many reasons why people prefer no fly cruises. Here are just 10 of the more popular reasons.(1) We live on an island! No matter where you live, youre probably closer to the sea than you realised. So, its probably just as easy to get to any of the major cruise ports as it would be to get to an airport. Cruise...

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...
