    we had a similair experience last year on a 3 night azura, feral middle aged women away from the hubbies and vulgar hen parties, the last straw for me was a 20 stone henette in stockings and basque, no more party cruises for me.

      We have sailed on the ventura twice now both times to the caribbean most recently Jan this year and i can assure you it was nothing like a bawdy booze cruise, in fact quite the opposite fantastic food,entertainment,staff and other passengers i would recomend P&O to anyone. At the end of the day if you book a booze cruise that is what you get !!

    We have only ever cruised with P & O, Arcadia and Oceanan but the first time on Ventura last February. You cannot really get a feel for the ship on a 2 night party cruise, thats all it is a party lasting for 2 nights. It is totally different on a 2 weeker in the Caribbean, the clientelle are very different, the ambiance will be different. We loved it and have booked 3 weeks next March, 2 weeks round the Caribbean then sailing back to Suthampton. Cant wait.

    I cruised the Carribean on the Ventura. Found the ship too large and the food not good. State rooms good and balcony size excellent - in fact I have never had such a large balcony before. Sadly it only had upright chairs when there was plenty of room for sun beds which would have been more comfy. Menus sounded tempting but food was misdescribed - one day I was given crabstix when a crab salad had been on offer. They also ran out of eggs for a couple of days! I think that P & O have really gone downhill having been on other ships previously - maybe the credit crunch has something to do with it. We found that to really enjoy dinner we had no alternative but to dine and pay the extra. I have also done a weekender. That was just about OK but we had a corner table and a very grumpy server who pushed guests out of the way when serving. He also made his annoyance plain when my son changed his breakfast order from fried to poached eggs (whilst still taking the order). Celebrity much better.

    VERY VERY good review i have completed this particular cruise twice and an additional one on ARTEMIS. On all occaisons it was to introduce friends to crusing to see if they could tolerate the sea conditions and the crowds. None of the 2 day cruises represent the crusies greater than 2 days. In a lot of cases I think they do P&O an injustice. I see them as a staff change over day and possible training days.

Time to try Thomson!!

By Lisa West

Yesterday we saw the launch of Thomson 2018 summer sailings go on sale, I must admit they have some fantastic itineraries. Thomson also announced their next ship the TUI Explorer for summer 2018 and the TUI Explorer 2 will follow in 2019. I think this is really exciting news for Thomson.More great news is the The TUI Discovery will also sail from Newcastle from May 2018 , she has some lovely itineraries round the Baltic and Norway. The fact that the ship sails from the North means you wil...

Sky Dive in the Sunshine state

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

It’s almost time for my annual Florida fix. I do like to try and squeeze in a trip to Florida every year. If I can of course. This time I’m doing something a little more than just the parks.I’ve signed up to do a sky dive. Moment of madness, impulsive booking, whatever but I’m going through with it. Tandem dive of course with a fully qualified instructor. I’m doing this jump at the highest altitude for a Tandem jump possible which is at 18000ft.We all have things...
