Default Just returned from the Ventura Party Cruise

We have just got back from the 11th April 3 day party cruise aboard the Ventura.

Fantastic ship, Havana night club large with great entertainment saw the Legends Act (Elton / Kylie / Neil Diamond) all very good.

Arena Theatre average sized but good production shows especially the Saturday Night Fever show.

All the other lounges such as Tamarind Club are spectacular although the comedians we thought to be very poor as they spent most of the night insulting some of the older members of the audience and were generally not that funny.

Food and service were 'spot on' although the food in the Lido restaurant was hard to get at due to the poor design of the service stations where preople with short arms could not reach the back dishes.

Childrens areas seemed to be well equipt.

Overall an excellent cruise and I am sure everybody booked on her will have an excellent time.

Hi Kempo & thanks for taking the time to post your comments.
We had our look around her today & after the shock of the bright orange atrium, which thankfully changed colurs during the day, found her well appointed & easy to navigate.

We are back on her for N803 when we'll get to see her under full working conditions, your comments have allayed our fears that there would be service level issues.

Did you manage to see the giant wall in Metropolis at night? We only saw various sea scapes, which were affected badly by the sunlight, so are looking forward to see the full affect at night time.

Once again, thanks,

Alan & Katrina

Yes we did see the wall in Metropolis.

It was interesting to see but not as facinating as we had hoped. There is a great view over the back of the ship from the Metropolis however.

Marco Pierre White's restaurant looks very nice but a bit pricey with a cover charge of £35 per head as is the Eastern Restaurant at £25 per head
