Overview Itinerary
The Ship
P&O Cruises' Ventura is a large, modern ship designed for both families and couples. This spacious vessel offers the luxurious Oasis Spa, adult-only The Retreat, and lively Fortunes Casino, as well as lots of activities for youngsters found around the children's pool. On Ventura, you can enjoy four swimming pools, 12 restaurants and cafes, and eleven lounges and bars. Relax with a drink on a sun lounger, join in dance and shuffleboard sessions, or enjoy a facial and massage treatment. There are also shops, pub quizzes, and plenty of places to enjoy the seascape and read a book. In the evening, dine on traditional and creative cuisines before watching West end-style shows, comedy acts and cabarets. Adults can also visit Havana — a Cuban-themed nightclub — and Fortunes Casino until late. Sail the world in style with families, friends and partners on Ventura.

Food
Ventura offers you a wide range of dining choices with individual menus and exquisite flavours. The main dining rooms — Cinnamon, Saffron and Bay Tree Restaurants — offer extensive menus of high-quality courses including oak-smoked salmon, classic Beef Wellington and Champagne sorbet. You can also enjoy a traditional afternoon tea featuring finger sandwiches, cakes, clotted cream, jam, and tea or coffee. Waterside is Ventura's informal, self-service restaurant which offers a range of foods from across the world, as well as a late-night bar serving sandwiches, paninis, cakes, biscuits, and pastries. The Epicurean creates classic British favourites — such as Shepherd's Pie, glazed lamb, poached lobster, and apple crumble — while Sindhu serves fine Indian cuisine. The Glass House is the place to go for tapas, steaks and burgers, or try The Beach House for Cuban pulled pork and American baby-back ribs. Tazzine is ideal for coffee and light lunches. You also have a poolside grill, pizzeria and ice cream bar.

Drink
On Ventura, you have plenty of places to enjoy a drink, including The Red Bar which offers cocktails, champagne and relaxing piano music. The Exchange is the ship's urban bar featuring beer, quizzes and live bands; while Metropolis is your stylish venue with floor-to-ceiling video wall and live jazz music. Tamarind Club and Havana Bar serve a range of cocktails and spirits alongside dancing and live bands until late.

Entertainment
During the day, there are arts and sports activities to keep adults entertained, as well as plenty of games hosted by the various kids' clubs. In the evening, the buzz of Fortunes Casino is a highlight of Ventura. Experience the bright lights of Las Vegas with its electric atmosphere, flashing slot machines and popular roulette wheel. The two-deck theatre stages spectacular performances including cabarets, West End-style shows, and film screenings, while Tamarind Club offers the ideal spot for dancing. Cuban-themed Havana Bar features a stage, dancefloor, karaoke, DJ sessions, live bands, and salsa music to enjoy until the early hours. Throughout the ship, you can also find comedy acts, live piano music, tribute bands, dance classes, and pub quizzes.
