Ventura

Ventura is one of the largest cruise ships in the P&O Cruises fleet. Ventura is where you’ll find an incredible choice of facilities from bars, restaurants, a sports court, spa and theatre. Plus Ventura also has a number of exciting features that are exclusively hers. Ventura’s signature restaurant is The White Room by none other than Marco Pierre White himself. But there are also 11 other restaurants to tempt you including a tapas bar and restaurant, a stunning Asian restaurant and a choice of Club Dining - the same table at the same time each evening, and Freedom Dining - no fixed seating or dining times. Ventura is a highly entertaining cruise ship. A theatre with full production shows doubles as a cinema, she has two lounges for cabaret, tributes, comedy and dancing and even Metropolis, an amazing bar with a panoramic video wall brought to life by a different city skyline each evening. She also has great sports facilities, a well-equipped gym and spa, a large sports court and 4 pools (one with a retractable roof). In fact, a Ventura cruise is very family-friendly. In addition to fantastic children’s clubs and a play area for under 2s, Noddy and Mr Bump from the Mr Men Show are regular visitors. She even has a 24-hour buffet restaurant so the only routines you need to keep are your own.
