One of P&O's largest cruise-liners, Ventura has a host of facilities and activities for adults and children and is a great introduction for families new to cruises, as well as a popular option for regulars. Kids love spending time in the club, suitable from age two, while younger guests enjoy the play area. Days and evenings are spent in one of the four swimming pools, experiencing the restaurants (including a 24-hour buffet), playing sports on the deck and/or watching a show in the theatre. If Mum and Dad want to enjoy a romantic meal or evening entertainment, childcare is also available at night.
Ventura takes families around the Mediterranean or the Caribbean. Included in your cruise holiday price are en-suite accommodation, flights (where applicable), dining (not drinks) and entertainment.
Ventura docks from Southampton and sails around the Med, northern Europe, the Canaries and the Caribbean, depending on the route you choose. To find out more about the destinations, routes and timetables, please contact us direct.
