Ventura, Western Mediterranean and Atlantic


I couldn’t fault the cruise itinerary (Santander, Vigo, Lisbon, Porto and Guernsey, so much to see even without the cruise excursions. The ship is a beautiful medium sized ship which appealed as well. Plenty to do and see on sea days or relax in the undercover pool area. It was enhanced (thanks to Imagine Cruises) by an Alfie Boe, Russell Watson and Harry Redknapp. The Headliners shows were fantastic as well.
Criticisms are very few with the normal queues at embarkation (with the extra Covid checks). Cruisers who had booked tables in the Bay Restaurant who didn’t use them. The two of us were sat by ourselves on a table of eight when there were plenty of tables for two free. We couldn’t move as ‘they were allocated’. P&O need to look at this. We ended up at the Cinnamon Restaurant on free time basis or the buffet.
All in all a very good value for money cruise and would not hesitate to do the same cruise again.
