    No need for the map as this is just an overnight in IJMUIDEN a good waste of 4 nights when you sea what CMV can do with their short trips.

    Good way to check out the ship while quiet as everyone is on the bus ride to Amsterdam.

    this was the thread from Feb when the port change happened.



      I'm on this, and it's actually 2 nights in port .................................................. ..............Carol


        Not according to the P&O itinerary when you go through the booking

        7am on the 15th to 3pm on the 16th.

        they do say this
        **Important information � Port order rotation**

        We are pleased you will be joining us on board Ventura.

        Ahead of your arrival, we wanted to make you aware of a change to your

        itinerary. In order for us to offer you an efficient shuttle bus service into

        Amsterdam, we have arranged to arrive in IJmuiden earlier than originally

        scheduled. As a result, we have rotated the port order and made some time

        amendments for our call to IJmuiden. Please see your revised itinerary below.

        If you have booked any Shore Experiences for Amsterdam, there may be some time

        or date changes. Please check your Cruise Personaliser for confirmation of any


        We look forward to welcoming you on board.
        They have not shown the revised below, but I think that is generic for the longer cruises, only ever been one port on this one.
        They may have changed itinerary but it is not showing.

        What schedule is showing in the Cruise Personaliser?


          We had a letter to say they were arriving the afternoon before, to give us longer in Amsterdam, and in the Personaliser it says arrive afternoon in port then overnight, overnight and leaving late on the final day, so should get a chance to see a fair bit of Amsterdam.

          Mind you if the weather doesn't change, I don't think I'll get of the ship!! .................................................. ................Carol


            Crazy they have not updated the schedule for new bookings.

            When will the free shuttle buses be running?

            No use if they are not running to match the schedule late into the first night if afternoon arrival.

            I persuaded my parents to do a Dec Amsterdam trip they had the world from the air Exibit we wanted to visit.
            Rushed back to the ship seriously cold

                It is reported Ventura has broken down in the Canaries and is heading back to Tenerife at a speed of 2 nautical miles per hour.


                PS It looks as if there is a tug en route to her.

                          Makes you wonder why P&O have not updated the schedule if it is arriving afternoon of the 14th Dec 2019

                            It may not now, as they are still trying to dry out the electrics and get the engines started in Tenerife to get back to Southampton for Friday ?

                              They've cancelled it. I know these things happen, but to say I'm devastated is an under statement. .................................................. .......Carol
