We went on the Ventura to Barbados in November 2011 and it was everything we wanted it to be. The checking-in process was superb and it wasn't too long before our cases were brought to our cabin. We had a balcony cabin which was very very spacious indeed and having the balcony made all the difference. There is so much to do on board the ship that you are spoilt for choice and the evening entertainment was very good. We had second sitting at dinner which suited us very well. All in all a wonderful cruise.
