If they have they've certainly kept it quiet! I'm sure It would be 'picked up' & posted on this site at the earliest opportunity.....Wilba.

A better question would be : "Will P & O ever sort out their increasing number of problems?". ... Neil.

Adding to the comments of the 2 Professors of Cruising, also have a look at an earlier post From Asher, Warrington 19th Jan 2009, Beginning I have two cabins booked for P&O Ventura for Christmas 2009 the post is actually about changing from the Ventura. It may be beneficial to read, the comment from Paul Knowles who copied the response from P &O to his letter from raising concerns following the Christmas New Year Cruise, please read the whole comment for full details. However, in summary, and not verbatim P & O response states very sorry you (Mr K) heard uncomplimentary remarks re Ventura, true there were a number of incidents, but exception, not the norm, sadly element of society intent on spoiling for others, do have security staff on patrol, unfortunately, they cannot be everywhere at all times. P & O try to insist on acceptable standards of conduct on board, ultimately cannot be responsible for apparent and unforeseeable antisocial behaviour of some. Appreciate your concerns, wish to assure you, opinions you read/heard recently representative of minority, P & O regularly received great number of complementary remarks for Ventura. This may help you in deciding if the problems have been resolved.

Thank you, now I feel I must be very honest, my response was in jest to Neil’s earlier comment. I do use a spell checker, I write in good old Office Word, followed by a nifty cut and paste, as my spelling is dreadful, however, I do not use a legal dictionary. Further I find it irritating when writing, with reviews, you can use paragraphs, but not in answers, consequently ...... to break continuous text, so hopefully it's easier on the eye of the reader.

Seems it's not just Ventura that's got a problem! Read the review P&O Nightmare on Oceana 25th Jan. P&O need a proper security team (bouncers) as per RCI/Celebrity/Carnival if they are going to quell this behaviour. Sending a letter to a single individual is nothing more than 'company speak, twaddle'. Until P&O announce a positive plan of action, published for the cruising world to regain confidence from, then they deserve all poor feedback & criticisms they are getting.......Wilba.

What Jane failed to show/mention

By Kerry James

I have been watching this series of Cruising with Jane McDonald (Friday nights at 9pm on Channel 5), and thought that when she was on MSC and Viking she did show more of the ship to the watcher/cruiser which I did think was lacking in the first series.I was surprised MSC had them back on as in the first series she didnt really show of the MSC Divina but was pleased to see that she was showing the newest ship in the fleet – MSC Meraviglia (at the moment until the MSC Seaside and MSC Seav...

Ciao I am Sailing

By Frankie Bond

Frankie Bond's blog

As you read this I will have started my own holiday – and yes you have guessed it I am off on a cruise…Firstly I will be spending 3 nights in the Mestre area of Venice to explore this beautiful city which I must admit to having never been to before (other than landing at the airport for a transfer to Trieste in April) I am looking forward to strolling around the beautiful streets, stopping for an ice-cream or a coffee in a lovely square and also to exploring the waterways of Veni...

Ryanair are a joke!

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

Well you have read the news. Ryanair are planning to cancel 40-50 flights a day…..yes A DAY because they have messed up their pilots holiday rota’s!!! I thought Michael O’Leary’s hair brained idea of ‘low cost standing room only on his flights’ was nonsense but I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard this news. Firstly are all their pilots taking holiday in Sept-Oct ? Is there a cheap deal we don’t know about and all the staff at Ryanair are...
