P&O Cruises’ Ventura is one of the largest and most innovative ships at sea. A family-friendly ship holding up to 3100 passengers, Ventura has something for every member of the family.

When you board, admire the astounding atrium; spanning 3 decks, it is sure to leave a lasting impression of your Ventura cruise holiday. Life onboard Ventura can be exactly as you wish; filled with fun and excitement, peace and relaxation or a combination of both. 

The ship boasts as many as 6 pools, fantastic sports facilities and a large sports court so you’ll never be stuck for things to do. The Children’s Club offers different facilities for 4 age groups, and by night you can use the service of Tumbler’s Nursery, where you can leave your little ones in safe hands from 6 pm to 2 am, so you can relax and enjoy your evening meal before settling down to revel in the onboard entertainment.

Accommodation

When it comes to accommodation there are a variety of options to choose from. The Interior Cabins are beautifully designed and offer air conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities. Outside Cabins are more spacious than Interior, so are perfect if you like to spend time in your room.

With a Balcony Cabin, you can open up the floor to ceiling glass doors to reveal your own private space. Or travel in ultimate style and luxury with a Suite; with a lounge, separate bedroom, whirlpool bath and butler-service, you will have copious amounts of space to relax and enjoy your time on-board.

With a fantastic array of dining options onboard Ventura, there is sure to be something to tempt each and every guest.

The 3 main dining rooms - Saffron, Cinnamon, and Bay Tree - serve breakfast and lunch daily, while Cinnamon and Bay Tree also serve dinner. For more casual meals head to the Waterside buffet restaurant, or even treat yourself to poolside snacks like ice cream, pizzas, and burgers.

There are also some beautiful speciality restaurants onboard:

  • Sindhu - the perfect venue to try some incredible British/Indian fusion meals, inspired by well-known chef Atul Kochhar
  • The Glass House - wine expert Olly Smith's concept, where it's possible to experience fine dining with impeccable wine pairings
  • The Epicurean - home of French patissier Eric Lanlard's afternoon teas, as well as some incredible dishes made with only the best British ingredients. 
  • The Beach House - a more informal venue boasting an extensive global menu of grilled foods

When sailing on Ventura, selected restaurants allow you to choose between Club Dining, where you are seated at the same table and dine at the same time each evening, and Freedom Dining where you can opt to have no fixed seating or dining time. 

The quality and variety of the onboard entertainment is astounding; from comedy and live music to karaoke, there is something different to be enjoyed every night.

The Arena Theatre spans two decks and shows full production West End style shows and cabaret for you to get up on your feet and enjoy. This venue also transforms into an impressive LED screen cinema, showcasing a mix of classic films and new releases.

The Havana show lounge; a Cuban themed nightclub will entertain you with cabaret, a live band or DJ, and you can even take part in some karaoke. Dance the night away to the sound of salsa beats with a cocktail in hand to get a real sense of Latin American paradise. If you’re looking for comedy and live music, The Tamarind Club is the perfect place for you. Enjoy the rich colour and opulence of this venue while you enjoy the entertainment.

For an experience you won’t forget, head to Metropolis; a bar with a panoramic video wall projecting different cityscapes, so you can enjoy a glass of wine ‘in Paris’ one night, and a cocktail ‘in New York’ the next.

When sailing onboard Ventura, you will truly be able to relax and rejuvenate. Make the most of a fully equipped gym which boasts an ocean-view, and spend time in the whirlpool spas, saunas, and steam room - all of which will leave you feeling refreshed and re-energised.

The Oasis Spa with its beautiful sea views is a true haven of tranquillity. Drift into a state of bliss whilst enjoying a range of treatments in one of the most luxurious spa facilities at sea. Teenagers can take advantage of the treatments and facilities of the Oasis Teen Spa, which has been developed exclusively for 13-17 year olds.

Ventura's six pools allow all guests plenty of opportunity to swim, play, and relax. With adults only, children's pools, and even a pool with a retractable roof, it's possible to spend time in the water in all eventualities.  

Those who enjoy sports can also take advantage of the Cirque deck, on which it's possible to play table tennis, basketball, football, golf nets, deck tennis, and darts. Or, guests will often find complimentary dance lessons held onboard - specifically ballroom and Latin style.

Indoors, spend time in the library, art gallery, or shopping in Ventura's superb and extensive boutique venues. Find a variety of British gins, and favourite brands such as Radley, Kipling, and Cath Kidston to name a few.
